I am very interested in the Kennedy's so this was the book for me. The book had all the details of JFK's life; everything from his family life to his assassination to the unanswered questions of his life. If you enjoy documentaries and the Kennedy's, this is definitely the book for you.

This book is so awesome! Loved the wonderful photographs. The book also provided great pictures for telling the story of JFK's life through the public eye. Definitely would recommend this book to teachers who are teaching about John F. Kennedy. This book is easy to read and understand. It also provides resources in the back. ( )

Rated four stars, this book is a good biography and informational text regarding one of the nation's greatest presidents. This book depicts the life of JFK through pictures and in easy to read sections for students. This would be an excellent book for teachers to introduce biographies, presidents, and JFK to students.

As the well-reviewed Through the Lens series continues, Sandler aims the spotlight on John F. Kennedy, one of our most photogenic presidents, providing insight into how JFK used the new medium of television and the advances in color photography to further his ambitious agenda. Sandler's extensive research at the Kennedy Library sheds light on key events in Kennedy's lifetime that combine to provide an intimate portrait of the man as a brother, a father, an activist, and a president. Out in time for the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's inauguration, this will be an essential addition to any Kennedy collection.
