It's obvious much time and research has been place into the writing of this book. A very organized collection of information, much of which was already known, place into one read. Highly recommended.
I was a very impressionable 19 yr old when the assassination happened and never felt that we got all the info that we should have. This book, the method it is written, takes that feeling of something being kept secret away. It is a long read, but I like the timeline approach, and search it interesting. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in what really happened in Dallas in November 1963 without innuendos.
since I got this book I have not been able to place it down. It was a not good time in history, that I remember so well . It was a time when we lost our innocence. The book is very well written . it brings back the time and the sorrow of those 4 days . The manhunt and the capture of Lee Harvey Oswald. As I said this book has a lot of info and is very well written. I will reread this again and again.
I believe this to be the definitive book on the assassination of President John Kennedy. I was 11 when Kennedy was murdered, and his death was a pivotal moment for me, as well as our nation. I have viewed numerous tv specials, and read numerous books and articles about the tragedy. The author here meticulously info the happenings of the assassination and its aftermath in such a method that the reader feels part of the story. It is a book for the ages.
Amazing Book very detail oriented. Highly Reccomended,, once I started reading this couldn't place it down. Lee Harvey Oswald was a true smartalick, but didn't fool the Dallas Police, FBI or Secret Service. Especially Forest Sorrells.
So much detail that I never knew about the asssassnation. My interest is in the people involved Not just the main characters but all the people behind the scenes who also had a story to tell. I read it twice just to create sure I did'nt miss anything. love this book!
In a year when there are/will be a glut of books about John Kennedy's life, his administration, and his death, this one stands alone because the author created a deliberate decision to avoid two topics: JFK's women and the conspiracies about the assassination. And that has created a major e people interviewed for the book come from so a lot of various walks of life (news people, White House employees, civil rights activists) and while some knew him very well, some had small interaction with him. But what the reader gets is a sense of the times he lived in, the expectations of a generation who suffered through the Depression, another generation who had fought in WW II,and an even younger generation who were growing up in the Cold Battle era. While each set viewed him in various ways, he had something that created him seem the symbol of the future. And that, above all else, is what was lost, as told by the topics in the book.Who knows what would have happened if he had not been killed. That is not what this book examines. It tells what we had, how we felt when it was brutally taken from us, and what that loss felt like, both at the time it happened and for years is book is a tribute to JFK: there are few poor reviews of his presidency in it. But at a time when there will be an avalanche of books either canonizing him or vilifying him, this one creates a sense of sadness, a feeling of grief, a moment of e interviews are very well edited, the topics were thoughtfully chosen, and a lot of of the memories are ones we have never heard before (the doctors who saved John Jr. at birth, the one who tried so hard to save Patrick, and the priest who gave the president the latest rights, for example). I have a large library of Kennedy materials, and this book is a fresh cherished part of that collection.I liked it VERY much.
Dean Owen has made an enjoyable, revealing and highly readable collection of oral histories of people connected with JFK and or the assassination. No conspiracy theories here. This just profoundly humanizes the happening which changed the United States of America forever. For Kennedy-philes, history buffs and maybe grandparents who remember exactly where they were that hour of that day and wish to convey something of the private and historical impact of the happening to a younger generation.
November 22, 1963, impacted millions of Americans. The stories collected by Dean Owen are insightful and provide a more complete picture of Kennedy, not previously captured in writing. The anecdotes, told by those with close working connections and those with short but intense interactions with Kennedy paint a special picture of the man and how he reacted under pressure. The stories provide touching insights and some are very humorous. I particularly liked the story by Dr. Bernhard about his interactions with Kennedy when his son Patrick was struggling to live, shortly after his birth. This book is a amazing method to remember Kennedy on this 50th anniversary of the Assassination. A fast and simple read.
There are a lot of books now available on the assassination of JFK from 50 years is selling about 30 of them. This is one of the better, more detailed though there are differences of opinion as to who, what and why the assassinationoccurred among the different authors selling here on , this book is well done,the author does his research and proves his point in a scholarly way, and his argument iswell presented. Although no one will really ever know for sure exactly who was responsible,this book is well worth a read.
Reading this book created me feel part of it, felt every emotion, saw every scene. JFK was one of my idols, very smart, charismatic, and amazing looking. America has not had another one like him.
Having read several of the biographies on JFK I enjoyed this book so much more than any of the others. It was nice getting the impressions of others who had the possibility to meet or work with him. It created him more personable to we who only knew of him.
I am really enjoying getting behind the front pages perspectives on JFK and by those who lived through the happenings of Nov 22. I still have much more reading to do, however. So I fully expect to [email protected]#$%! feeling positively happy to have had this experience to add to my understanding and experience.
Interesting to read where these people were when they heard the news of the Kennedy Assassination. Everyone old enough to remember recalls exactly where they were and what they were doing on November 22, 1963.
Its a amazing application if you obtain the whole application after paying for it. I know its only like $2 for the full application but if you don't pay for it you literally obtain nothing from the application besides the weekly picture and weight estimate. Kind of pointless. Full application adds more items but its not very amazing either I recommend Ovia Pregnancy application if you're looking for a amazing pregnancy app.
Every time you go on the application it asks you to pay for it, and if you have the notification on when the pop up comes up it wont allow you do anything else on your phone until you go on the application which is annoying. And it also stops at 39 weeks.
I love the weekly info, I hate hownlate in the day it notifies me of my fresh week. By then I've already read it. Also at 31 weeks it says "bany" not baby and um I would prefer the option to place my info in metrics system "kg" and "cm" isnt helpful and its a lot more work for me to have tonput in to see my babys development. Not to mention I stopped even bothering with the pictures and the entries. And why did I pay for the "extras" aka useless info? Witha few fixes this could be a amazing app.
If you are downloading it for the diary, don't bother. I tried 15 times and only one entry actually saved and you can't go back and edit them. It would also be nice if you could add more than one picture. The weekly pictures and info are amazing though.
I read 24 Hours as my morning & evening meditation portion of my 'Quiet Time.' It speaks to the alcoholic in me & it speaks to my spiritual needs. I search comfort, growth and reminders of my recovery course. It has been an integral part of my recovery for 11 years now.
This application is amazing for everyday reflections. It has a bug in that it will hold the alarm icon always showing in the Android device status bar at the top of the Android device screen. The only method to remove this annoying icon is to force a stop on the app. I would ask the application author to add an option to enable / disable the alarm icon. As it currently is, I cannot tell if I've set a wake up alarm for myself.
I don't know but I've been sober for a small over 6 years and I don't create meetings as much as I'd like to. If it wasn't for this book [app] and other AA literature my days would be much more difficult. Thank you AA book publishers and application people. 😀
