Reviews

"Comprehensive, judicious, evenhanded, original. An Unfinished Life has the sober judgment and nuanced accuracy that make it ring true in all the controversial and tricky parts."--Jack Newfield, Los Angeles Times
"An intimate portrait indeed . . . unexpected and important. . . . This is nothing if not a profile in courage."--Ted Widmer, New York Times Book Review
"It's hard to believe that someone could find anything new to say about John F. Kennedy, but Dallek succeeds in this riveting and well-documented biography."--The New Yorker
"One of the most engrossing biographies I have ever read. . . . An Unfinished Life is nothing less than a masterpiece."--David Herbert Donald, author of Lincoln
"Neither debunking nor further mythologizing, Dallek fashions a balanced but fast-paced tale of sex and power that scribes from Shakespeare to Jacqueline Susann would have killed for."--Steve Dougherty, People
