"In JFK and the Unspeakable Jim Douglass has distilled all the best available research into a very well-documented and convincing portrait of President Kennedy's transforming turn to peace, at the cost of his life. Personally, it has made a very big impact on me. After reading it in Dallas, I was moved for the first time to visit Dealey Plaza. I urge all Americans to read this book and come to their own conclusions about why he died and why -- after fifty years -- it still matters.” -- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
“Right now, I ask all of you—please please, read JFK and the Unspeakable! I cried all night reading it, and didn’t sleep a wink. It is a book that could make us stand up and change the world, right now. Maybe we can save the world before it blows up. Really” —Yoko Ono

Over the years I have read numerous books and have tried to answer and assuage that awful emptiness of not fully knowing th truth. It never came until now.
This book has carefully laid out what happened. It dealt with the unspeakable and the why. Yes the why! What other good books have dealt with seems definitively, clearly, and in a correlative way set down here.
For the first time since 1975, I now have a sense of closure concerning a tragic event in our history.
What happened does not bring peace and at best it remains troubling. Yet it is reality.
I recommend the book as required reading. It moved me. It shows us that we have yet to grow and mature as humans in this complicated world and our country of many differences.
It talks of hope despite the unthinkable. It definitely presents reality. Thanks to the author and all those who have tried to resolve and bring closure to this horrific event.
Is there hope? Perhaps...but we collectively must begin with it and aim at what would be best for all and not just a few. Thanks.
