Editorial Reviews

Review

“Chris Matthews evocatively brings the man and his moment back to life. It is a story that needs to be told again as a heroic counterpoint to the Trump era’s fundamental disrespect for the idea that politics can be a noble profession.”

–John Avlon, The Daily Beast

“Considerable insight from beginning to end”

–The New Republic

“A brisk, admiring portrait that burnishes the Kennedy image.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Cogently illustrates leadership qualities Kennedy possessed that are sorely lacking in today’s divisive culture.”

Booklist

“If you love reading about politics, if you ever loved the Kennedys or were fascinated by them, if you love biographical history or if you just like a good yarn about a brooding soul who turns into an uplifting, magnetic force—Chris Matthews’ “Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit” Should be your next read. It’s well-researched, dramatically told. It brings those times—Camelot and after—back to life.” 

Lesley Stahl, Correspondent for 60 Minutes

"Matthews is skilled at weaving tension and conflict throughout the book. One doesn’t just read the words, but experiences the tension and emotions....The depth of Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit provides insight into this man’s spirit and what drove him to greatness. Matthews does an excellent job of pulling Bobby out from behind any family shadows to give us an in-depth portrait of what could have been."

New York Journal of Books

"Readers witness the evolution of Kennedy’s soul. Through tragedy after tragedy we find the man humanized."

–Associated Press (AP)

"Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s Hardball, has synthesized a familiar story into a brisk, straightforward biography in which he casts Kennedy’s life as an existential progress of the soul—which it most definitely was....Matthews’ narrative, bolstered by archival interviews, manages to advance our understanding of an enigmatic man....Matthews has a sharp eye for those moments in Kennedy’s early life that flag the man he would become....'Give sorrow words,' Shakespeare wrote in Macbeth. This Matthews has done."
