Golway (Full of Grace) offers an objective, highly informative portrait of Kennedy's political career and family life. Entries are organized chronologically and written like news releases, opening with the geographic origin of each event. Sidebar time lines tick off important daily events on each double-page spread's right-hand edge. Relevant photographs offer another layer of valuable information. Occasionally, half pages are devoted to more detailed subject explanations, like the significance of Charles de Gaulle's growing influence. The organization allows readers to follow the trajectory of Kennedy's actions. The prose is straightforward and engaging. An excellent and revealing subject overview for students and general readers.
