Focused and experienced editors Yann-Brice Dherbier and Pierre-Henri Verlhac have created the third volume of photographic tributes to the Kennedy Family, the closest this country ever came to royalty - in the most positive sense possible. Having successfully enshrined JFK and Jacqueline Kennedy for the still mourning public in their previous volumes, this sizeable portfolio likewise confines editorial comments to a few pages then lavishes the viewer with photographs, not all professionally created, but justifiably saved for posterity.

The life of John-John was never easy - from our first memories of his birth as a White House baby, to the indelible impression left by his captured farewell salute during his father's funeral march, to his struggle for privacy in the clangor of paparazzi, to his schooling, creative adventure with George Magazine, to his throne as the world's most eligible bachelor and his subsequent marriage to Carolyn Bessette and tragedy of their deaths in a plane crash - and the ideal young man was beset with undercurrents of sadness. Yet he remains a heroic figure in the minds of the people who adored him from his birth to his untimely death.

The book is rich in memories as captured by both professional and non-professional photographers and is one of those volumes that remind the reader of a saner, kinder time. It is worthy of everyone's library. Grady Harp, December 05

For those of us lucky enough to remember President Kennedy and his family, this retrospective about his son John, couldn't come at a better time. With all the rage of war in Iraq it's nice to think about a time when life was more at ease. This book helps.

John Kennedy was not a hero or a saint. He was a son of a president who tried to make a life on his own against tremendous odds. Yes, he had things going in his favor, but he also had talent, courage and died far too young. Study the photos of this man. We are not a country of kings, queens or princes. But we did have John Kennedy for a few, brief years, and I think we were all the better for it.

This book is a great collection of amazing pictures of JFK, Jr. From being America's little prince, to becoming one of the most photographed, and loved members of Camelot. It includes a small bio, which I found very well written and informative. If you're a fan of John... you will LOVE this book.

This book contains wonderful pictures from John's early days to his last ones. If you are interested in the Kennedy family, this book is definitely a must have. Unfortunately the quality of the text doesn't equal the picture's ones. There is only few information delivered with this book and very often you would wish for more.

The book was in Very Good condition and arrived in a timely fashion. It sits on my coffee table and it's bursting with wonderful black & white and color photos of John Kennedy, Jr. There's also a brief tale of his life at the very beginning.

I thought the book fully lived up to my expectations. It gave me access to photos I had not seen before (and I am a rabid Kennedy fan) . I would recommend it to anyone interested in the Kennedy family.

This is a very nice book to look at and to read. I was engrossed reading it. It is sad as we all know what happened, but you cannot help to wonder what could have been to such a beautiful man.
