Book Overview

In Chris Matthews’s New York Times bestselling portrait of Robert F. Kennedy, “Readers witness the evolution of Kennedy’s soul. Through tragedy after tragedy we find the man humanized” (Associated Press).

With his bestselling biography Jack Kennedy, Chris Matthews profiled of one of America’s most beloved Presidents and the patriotic spirit that defined him. Now, with Bobby Kennedy, Matthews provides “insight into [Bobby’s] spirit and what drove him to greatness” (New York Journal of Books) in his gripping, in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at one of the great figures of the American twentieth century.

Overlooked by his father, and overshadowed by his war-hero brother, Bobby Kennedy was a perpetual underdog. When he had the chance to become a naval officer like his older brother, Bobby turned it down, choosing instead to join the Navy as a common sailor. It was a life-changing experience that led him to connect with voters from all walks of life: young and old, black and white, rich and poor. They were the people who turned out for him in his 1968 campaign. RFK would prove himself to be the rarest of politicians—both a pragmatist who knew how to get the job done and an unwavering idealist who could inspire millions.

Drawing on extensive research and interviews, Matthews pulls back the curtain on the private world of Robert Francis Kennedy. Matthew illuminates the important moments of his life: from his early years and his start in politics, to his crucial role as attorney general in his brother’s administration and, finally, his tragic run for president. This definitive book brings Bobby Kennedy to life like never before.

    WELL WRITTEN AND MR.MATHEWS BRINGS BACK TO LIFE ONE OF THE GIANTS OF MY YOUTH. IF ONLY WE HAD POLITICIANS TODAY WHO WOULD LOOK OUT FOR THE UNDERDOG AND THE POOR AS BOBBY DID. HIS EMPATHY AND COMPASSION WERE HALLMARKS OF HIS LIFE. HIS DEDICATION TO FAMILY AND COUNTRY AND TO HIS FAITH WERE WHAT SETS HIMS APARTS WITH WHAT WE HAVE TO LIVE WITH TODAY. A SAD A D GREAT LOSS AND THINGS WERE NEVER THE SAME AGAIN IN AMERICA AFTER JOHN AND BOBBY WERE GONE.

    An easy, phenomenal read about Robert Kennedy. Great insight on his role in helping Jack achieve the heights of his political career, as well as a great deal of information on Bobby's political career.
