There has been no complete biography like this one. Jack deals with the full scope of Kennedy's life: his family, his friends, even his infidelities. There's much new to say, much culled from hundreds of hours of tapes from the Oval Office that were unavailable until now. Through painstaking research, Geoffrey Perret located thousands of revealing documents on national security issues and foreign affairs. All of the documents from the Assassination Records Review Board are now available as well and Perret has mined the Kennedy Library in a way few others have, finding letters and diaries that have never before seen the light of day. With style and substance, Perret brings to life again the man who left such an indelible impression on the twentieth century.
Geoffrey Perret was educated at Harvard University and the University of California at Berkeley. He was enlisted in the US Army for three years and is the author of acclaimed books Ulysses S Grant and Eisenhower. He lives in England.
