I seem to read only historical biographies and tend to stick to authors I know and love. This one looked interesting by an author unknown to me but looked interesting.
I was pleasantly surprised! It really did read like a novel but without a lot of focus on gossipy Kennedy info or other such focuses. The author stayed right with his subject when it came time to those relationships. He naturally talked about All the Presidents Men but didn’t give us information we already know. In fact, his amazing findings of boxes of information just sitting in Ben Bradlee’s Home or office coupled with his careful questions of Mr. Bradlee were what made it so interesting.
I would definitely recommend this book even if you want to know what those troubled times were like in our country from someone who both witnessed and shaped some of the events.
