User reviews about this book
Realistic, compassionate, beautiful
Chris Matthews is a brilliant writer, especially in articulating the essence of the remarkable Robert Kennedy. I appreciated learning of the family background and Bobby’s struggle with the family patriarch. The description of backroom politics of that era was honest, even when not necessarily pretty. I also appreciated that the gory details of Jack, Martin and Bobby’s deaths were left unsaid. Finally, having been a young adult in that political period, I took a trip down memory lane but also learned so much that I didn’t remember or had never known. Thanks, Chris, for a beautiful, touching portrait of Robert Kennedy.
WELL WRITTEN AND MR.MATHEWS BRINGS BACK TO LIFE ONE OF THE GIANTS OF MY YOUTH. IF ONLY WE HAD POLITICIANS TODAY WHO WOULD LOOK OUT FOR THE UNDERDOG AND THE POOR AS BOBBY DID. HIS EMPATHY AND COMPASSION WERE HALLMARKS OF HIS LIFE. HIS DEDICATION TO FAMILY AND COUNTRY AND TO HIS FAITH WERE WHAT SETS HIMS APARTS WITH WHAT WE HAVE TO LIVE WITH TODAY. A SAD A D GREAT LOSS AND THINGS WERE NEVER THE SAME AGAIN IN AMERICA AFTER JOHN AND BOBBY WERE GONE.
An easy, phenomenal read about Robert Kennedy. Great insight on his role in helping Jack achieve the heights of his political career, as well as a great deal of information on Bobby's political career.
