Reviews

"Remarkable...a book worth getting and reading as well as passing down from one generation to another."--Family Choice Award
"This...perfectly timed [book]...will be for many readers like the welcome, delicious equivalent of a large pitcher of iced water during a long, smoggy summer heat wave...[it] should not be approached as a eulogy for a fallen statesman...[but]...better read...as a blueprint for the future."--Vital Speeches
"Rich background information on policy and historical context introduces each chapter and frames each speech, which reveal Kennedy's appeal to Democrats and Republicans, minorities and the middle class."--Library Journal
