"Poignant, fascinating, entertaining and informative ...reminds us exactly how much did happen in that time span and of how many tantalising hints he left behind". (Financial Times). "Brilliantly captures Kennedy's entire life through the prism of his final months ...the hero, like the devil, is in the detail". (Mark Mason, Spectator, Books of the Year). "Wonderfully vivid". (Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times). "A vivid portrait of Kennedy as an immensely complex human being: by turns detached and charismatic, a hard-nosed politician and a closet romantic, cautious in his decision making but reckless in his womanizing". (Michicko Kakutani, New York Times). "A superb piece of writing - richly detailed and, considering that the end is all too well known, surprisingly enthralling". (Frank Gannon, Wall Street Journal). "The great merit of Clarke's account is that it encompasses both sides of Kennedy: the statesman and the chancer; the moralist and the opportunist". (David Runciman, New Statesman). "A superb book ...has the ominousness of a Shakespearean tragedy". (Roger Lewis, Daily Mail).
