5.0 out of 5 stars SEEDS OF DESTRUCTION A DIFFERENT KENNEDY VIEW, December 3, 2001
By

This review is from: Seeds of Destruction: Joe Kennedy and His Sons (Hardcover)
Instead of all the usuall junk and rehash that is in most, if not all books Ralph Martin takes a different view. He studys how the father and his ways affected the sons and how this made for a strangely dynamic family group. He ( Martin) probes into the mindset of each generation and how each tragedy or world event changed each member. Fascinating to see each of the sons grow and how they were raised differently and influenced by different members of the family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book !!, October 13, 2003

This review is from: Seeds of Destruction: Joe Kennedy and His Sons (Hardcover)
I don't know what was the author's rationale for writing this book. To me this book shows the futile efforts and attempts of a power-hungry man to influence his family and his sons. Finally Providence took over and gave him nothing but grief and perhaps regret. I am glad there was never a 'Kennedy' political dynasty. It would have been disastrous for the U.S. and for the world !!
