P39..outside La Cote Basque...looks like Central Park to me.
P47..seeing I am curious Yellow...Should be 1969 not 1967.
P48...Should be arriving at JFK airport.
P56,57,64,67,69...Not even in New York. All photos taken in Paris. That is evident by the street signs in French and the multitude of Citroens and Renaults everywhere.
P81...Should be talking to Steve Smith and William Walton...not Stephanie Boudin.
P105..photo was taken in 1975 at first press conference for Grand Central Station not in 1978.
P112 ..photo with Pete Hamil is from 1977 not 1979.
P126-129...photos from Martha Vineyard...last time I looked Martha's Vineyard was not even in the state of New York.
P136...photo with Granddaughter Rose....it is also with granddaughter Tatiana.
P138...Granddaughter wrongly identified as Rose..it should be Tatiana.
Apart from that I also agree with what a previous reviewer stated. The 80-90's is covered off in just 20 pages and more should have been devoted to this period. Then there is the foreword by Nan A. Talese where she mentions that in New York most people respected her privacy,except for certain photographers...It seems hypocritical to have this comment then have the front cover and 15 pages credited to the photographer that Mrs Onassis had the most problems with. In addition to that we have seen these photos over and over again in book after book.Read more ›
Page 10- Nan Talese's introduction. The Egyptian, not Greek government, offered the Temple of Dendur which was later installed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Page 41- The girl pictured is not Annabelle Churchill but Arabella Churchill
Taken by various photographers, the pix capture Jackie strolling down streets, biking, jogging, meeting and greeting, smoozing with friends, attending the Opera, walking with Caroline and John Jr. on a date with Artistotle O. etc. The images date from the mid-1960s to the mid-90s. Most are candids. Captions are bare-bones.
Whatever the setting, the photographs, taken together, are a fond remembrance of a gracious, talented and lovely lady...with a dazzling smile. Recommended.

A publisher's challenge, this book. An over-mentioned mediocre citizen, she was. Avoid this book-- bury her dead, and let us instead celebrate true members of society.Published 1 day ago by The Sequined Demure
