This book is a Keeper for all J.F.K Fans the world over. I love the excellent visuals and the superb writing from the trendsetters of that era. This book makes you feel as if you are transported back to the early 1960s and you feel as if you are witnessing history from a front seat balcony. Many of the photographs have never been seen before. Pick up this book for your Library today and relive those brief, shining moments in history!

Notice my title? This book is bursting with colorful (somewhat rare) photos of the Kennedys! It's wonderful, apart from the awesome photos the reading is great, too! there were a couple photos that I have never seen before. This book is YES worth the money, very cool to look at. Takes you back to the wonderful and magical days of Camelot.

4 of 39 people found the following review helpful By Brad Morgan on May 21, 2007
Format: Hardcover
The Kennedy Mystique is a wonderful book. My 7 year old Daughter likes to look at the pictures. My Exwife gave me heck because at school my 7 year old Daughter said she was a relative of President Kennedy and none of her classmates believed her and told the teacher she was making up stories. I have computer printouts from Ancestry dot com showing the relationship between my Great Great Grandfather David Doughty Morgan 1851 to 1915 and President Jack Kennedy. Like the early Christians were persecuted I was told I was crazy at my Church for saying I was a blood Kennedy realtive until I brought in the Computer printouts proving this to be true. The coauthor of this book mister Dallek makes the writing about the Kennedy family Prestigious. Dont just look at the pictures, read about Americas greatest Family the Kennedys. My prior reviews about President Kennedy being alive have been deleted. Lets see what happens this time. I invoke freedom of speech for keeping this Amazon review on the internet. Write a response to whether you believe Brad Morgan (Kennedy) is the real American Shadow Vice President a tradition that goes back to 1774 and the Continental Congress and is Constitutional.
