Editorial Reviews

Review

“One of the best narrative treatments of the four days from assassination to funeral.” (Wall Street Journal)

“This is quite simply a book that will be read for centuries.” (Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent)

“What Bugliosi has done is a public service... the literary equivalent of World War I, a kind of trench warfare for the mind.” (New York Times Book Review)

“At last, someone has done it, put all the pieces together.... With this work, Bugliosi has definitively explained the murder that recalibrated modern America.” (Los Angeles Times Book Review)

“By far the most accurate and detailed nongovernmental account [of] the assassination.” (Richard Mosk, member of the Warren Commission - Los Angeles Daily Law Journal)

“There is no question that Bugliosi succeeds in scorching the conspiracy theory terrain with ferocious, even definitive, plausibility.” (The Atlantic)

“Few books are as gripping in their narrative, or as telling in their fine detail. This is a book that will make you weep.” (Philadelphia Inquirer)

“What Bugliosi has done is reframe the narrative in such a compelling manner, in such an original writing voice, that he essentially shuts the conspiracy theorists down cold.” (The Oregonian)

This is said to be only three shots, yet a fourth empty cartridge was found in that rifle.
Acute Observer
This is an excellent book written in an orderly fashion with great research and details and it is almost like attending a trial.
David L Johnson
I very much enjoyed this minute by minute account of the President John F. Kennedy's assassination in Dallas, Texas.

Enjoyed the book very much, especially pleased with Mr. Bugliosi's writing style. I was a little surprised, though, to find that the entire photo section was omitted from my Kindle edition. It was a little frustrating to read a book that contains many references to photos and diagrams in a section that wasn't there. I called customer service and was told that perhaps the publisher wanted the photo section left out. He apologized and refunded my money.

As a "Baby-Boomer" I was just old enough to comprehend the consequences of JFK's assassination in 1963. Since then, I've read more than a few books on the subject and Mr. Bugliosi's effort rates as one of the best, along with Bill O'Reilly's "Killing Kennedy: The End Of Camelot." Although "Killing Kennedy" deals exquisitely with historical and biographical information on the people involved, Mr. Bugliosi gives you an extraordinary timeline of events as well as behind the scenes of the Dallas Police Department and its interrogations of Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby. You can draw your own conclusions on how much the Federal Bureau of Investigation helped/hindered a case in which it had no jurisdiction.

When Vincent Bugliosi wrote Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, published in May, 2007, the predecessor of the book being reviewed here, it was widely regarded as his magnum opus, a towering masterpiece which took twenty years and 1648 pages to write. In this new edition about the assassination, drawn from Reclaiming History, Bugliosi has now winnowed the original manuscript to approximately 500 pages, concentrating on the facts of the assassination and eliminating nearly all the material used by the conspiracy theorists because he has essentially disproved the conspiracy idea.

Four Days in November reconstructs the assassination, giving dates and times, sometimes second by second, to make these real events come to life, and he includes seventy-nine photographs and drawings. The resulting achievement is stunning, an intensely readable and compelling work of scholarship which should eliminate, once and for all, the idea that there was more than one gunman. Photographs of the shooting, broken down into tiny fractions of a second, anatomical drawings of the wounds of President Kennedy and Governor Connolly, fingerprint evidence in the "sniper's nest" at the Book Depository, extensive photographs of the grassy knoll at the time of the shooting, and accounts from many eye-witnesses provide weighty, seemingly incontrovertible, evidence that Oswald was the lone shooter.

But there are just too many questions that Bugliosi leaves hanging out there, never to be addressed. I am a big fan of V. Bugliosi's work so needless to say I was very disappointed when this didn't turn out to be the end all be all of books about the subject. There are so many suspect circumstances surrounding this assination, no wonder there is a truck load of conspiracy theories floating around. But Vince does not address them, just merely states these events as fact.

Bugliosi does it again. Not only is he a gifted writer, he artfully incorporates impeccable attention to sourcing, as any good attorney has been trained to do. This book has special meaning for me personally, as the late Officer Tippit was my great uncle by marriage. Although my family members have shared with me some details over the years, such as the poignant telegram Mrs. Kennedy immediately sent to Mrs. Tippit following the murders, and the magnitude of the funeral itself, with its enormous turnout, Bugliosi shares many details I never learned from my private and pained family. I appreciate that. The Dallas PD saluted my uncle's sacrifice this past November by wearing black remembrance ribbons, and for their actions I for one am truly grateful. I also felt honored to be able to teach my daughter that while President Kennedy died much too soon, surely he finds solace as he looks down from above that the Congress in its grief unified to pass the Civil rights act of 1964, forever improving our great land.

This is the best recounting of the days surrounding the JFK assassination I've ever read. It's done in an hour-by-hour format that keeps the story moving quickly. There's an amazing amount of detail about all the people you've heard of, including Lee Harvey Oswald, and about a few you've probably never heard about. I read Bugliosi's book "Helter Skelter," about the Tate/LoBianco murders, back in the '70s and remember that it scared the hell out of me. This one isn't scary per se, but it shows how easily one person can change history. It reads like a detective novel. I was a child when Kennedy was assassinated, so reading this as an adult gave me a better understanding of what went on during that chaotic time.
