Discover Kennedy’s talented diplomatic skills when navigating the Space Race, the nuclear missile crisis and his sympathies with the fledging civil rights movement. Learn about the man himself, the charming son, brother and husband, who maintained a charismatic public image, despite suffering from chronic illness all his life.

“Absolutely brilliant. It covered everything I had vaguely remembered and introduced several things I had not been aware of. How great it is to get so much info in such a sort a short reading time. Very well written and so easy to ‘connect the dots’! I really enjoy this author. I’ve read several other things by her and she keeps getting better and better!”
“I found this guide to JFK to be an extraordinary introduction and brief overview of his life. This book is excellent for those, like me, who are interested in this particular topic but have never explicitly looked into it. The whole series of ‘History in a Hour’ is excellent and the concept is ingenious.”
“It does what it says on the tin. You get a potted history which I have found to be pretty good in all of the “History in a hour” books that I’ve read. I hope there’s more of these books in the pipeline. I really enjoy them.”
