Reading young Jack's letters alone was amazing--he was so bright, funny and insightful (it is hard to imagine how he shared ANY DNA with the current crop of Kennedy's). So much was covered in the book it is hard to focus on any ONE particular facet of his life, but for starters: He was so ill from an early age and dumped in hospitals for "tests" for weeks at a time--his parents pretty much ignored him during these awful times. He learned to keep himself happy with reading TONS of history books. He was still able to develop the most hilarious sense of humor--about everything in his life, both the good and the awful. His friends adored him and he adored them--over the decades of this book. I'll bet I wasn't the only reader who wished that JFK could've been THEIR friend while reading about his life. His charisma is obvious even in READING about him. If only the later volumes were written---we can always hope! And to Amazon--PLEASE make this available in Kindle form. I would love to purchase it this way as well.
