This hefty tome ends with JFK’s funeral, with much of Bob and Ted’s stories still to come. Historians will wince at some of the hyperbole and speculative conclusions, but Kennedy junkies will gobble it up.

In the final analysis, Leamer is a fan, idealizing his subjects. The result is a good read, though not necessarily a balanced history. Leamer's book is the first of a projected two-volume set.
