"If you want a peek inside America's royal family, this is a must-read, with details that only Boston Globe reporters could know." -- Tim O'Brien, The Minneapolis Star Tribune
"A balanced, nuanced, warts-and-all portrait." -- Kirkus Reviews
"A timely if not revelatory portrait of a flawed figure who 'never expected to become the custodian of his family's sorrows' but found a way to transcend the role." -- Alex Altman, Time
"A readable, relatively objective study of the once most-vilified man in contemporary American politics." -- The Washington Times
"With the publication of Last Lion: The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy, we get a fresh look at how this man's gothic imperatives -- blood loyalty and inherited duty -- would make him the greatest U.S. senator of modern times." -- Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball and author of Kennedy & Nixon: The Rivalry That Shaped Postwar America
"Last Lion is a fine biography, a graceful summing up an extraordinary life that is not yet over. It shows little sign of having been written by a team of seven, and it does not carry the tone of an obituary. With its anecdotes and political tales, it captures the wit, humor, and grace of Ted Kennedy and establishes his place, 'as much a part of the Capitol as the dome or the Rotunda beneath it.'" -- Ken Bode, The Boston Globe --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
