It's definitely a little heartbreaking and melancholy but the digital edition with the videos and audio recordings is just excellent. A very complete publication.

I personally found it hard to read a book from a pure conversational standpoint. I felt like you do when you are listening in on a conversation, but only catching parts, so your left trying to piece it all together.

Similar to stepping back in time and eavesdropping on conversations that shaped history. I was a bit taken back by some of her views towards women and the way she chose to communicate with the president. Before reading these conversations, you may want to remove any preconceived theories you may hold regarding the persona of Jacqueline Kennedy. Also understand 50 years have passed and if she were alive today and granted such an interview (unlikely), many of her views shared in this conversation would have changed by past historical gains. The language is candid and I applaud Caroline Kennedy for being brave enough to publish these conversations without major editing. A great read for those interested in politics, woman's studies and behaviors.

Fascinating way of personalizing history.
She was such a heroic woman, married to one of the 20th century greats.
An unsusual insight

Very unusual for me to really "hear" Jackie speaking as she would to a close friend. How she reacted to certain people and she seemed more like us "common" folk in her description of people and events.

Can't have enough of the Kennedys. Interesting to get "Jackie's take on everything and everyone". It ended rather abruptly.
Would have liked more.

Like everyone with my life's experiences, the fate of the John F. Kennedys is an historical event that is engrained in my soul. Hearing Jackie Kennedy's voice describing those dark days is truly an eye-opener. Thanks to Caroline for deciding to release these tapes now.

This is a very important book for its historical value. For this reason, it's worth reading. However, one has to really know
the politics of the times and people to understand what Jacqueline Kennedy is saying. I found the way Mrs. Kennedy's role as
a wife very interesting and indicative of the times. Sometimes the interview was boring, but that was because every word was
recorded and sometimes she had nothing to add. I would recommend the book to those interested in history.

...whether American or not. I was a bit biased, since my late mother was Ms Kennedy's Greek teacher, still I learned a great lot about her years in the White house.
