Read full description of the books President Kennedy: Profile of Power:My immediate sense of this book was that it portrays a very different world than today. The biggest issues of Kennedy’s time: fear of nuclear war; the Berlin wall; Cuba; nuclear test ban treaties; and civil rights struggles in the South. Unlike some other presidential biographies, the issues here are never boring … well, until the end, when Kennedy and the book get bogged down a little too much in Vietnam.
One of the really nice things about this book is the way Reeves conveys a sense of Kennedy’s almost surreal daily life. In a single day he might have a meeting about a test ban treaty, then one on Vietnam, then a phone conversation with Martin Luther King on civil rights; squeeze in a quick meeting with high school students in-between (including young Bill Clinton), and cap it off at the end of the day with a hot bath for his back and a secret liaison with a mistress.
