    This book was a good It exposes Joseph Kennedy for the disgusting womanizing crook he was but that isn t the surprise What was surprising in this book was how PRO NAZI Joe Kennedy was and the iron fisted control he had on his children even when they were adults The book is well written, the research is excellent, direct quotes and first hand accounts from the people who were there and knew Joe Kennedy, including but not limited to Gloria Swanson, Roosevelt and Hoove...

    A very unflattering portrayal of the Kennedy s Dad was a power hungry meglomaniac living his life vicariously through his sons Very interesting I didn t think I could think any worse of this family that has plagued America for far too long, but I did after reading this book.

    Interesting look into the Kennedy family to separate the political spin machine from the reality of the family s less than storied past and rise to fame.

    excellent and insightful

  9. Lindsay says:

    This was a well researched and though provoking book However, I felt that too much of the book focused on Joe s political shenanigans and not enough on why he made the decisions he did I would have liked to hearabout his relationship with...

    A very interesting story showing the drive and ruthlessness Joe Kennedy had to make sure he and his children succeeded It forces you to question the golden reputation of Camelot and the Kennedy s There was a feeling of gossip and pettiness in this story but the information does seem to be backed up.
