    1 thought on “The Kennedy Men: 1901-1963”

    1. 1901-1960 has as much time spent on it as the Cuban Middle crisis alone. It would have behooved the author to remember that there was more to the Kennedy male line than JFK. I have learned more about the sires reading Kennedy Women. A little disappointed, but at the same time much more knowledgeable about Jack.

    2. I tried SO HARD to read this book. The Kennedy family has always been tremendously fascinating but he managed to make them all duller than mud. Took me months to get through and I'm a binge reader.

    3. The title of this book is somewhat misleading. It is ostensibly about all of the Kennedy men, but in reality it is largely about Joe Kennedy Snr and John F. Kennedy, with a healthy side-helping of Bobby and Joe Jnr, but Teddy gets fairly short shrift. And the fact that book ends with JFK's assassination in 1963, despite the fact that Joe Kennedy lived another six years, Bobby another five years and Teddy until 2009, is telling.Bobby and Teddy's lives are very much written as an adjunct of their [...]

    4. One wonders at this point in time, what more can be said about the Kennedy family, but there seems to be a endless fascination with them, and I am not exempt from this phenomenon. Laurence Leamer's biography concentrates on the men in the family and ends with the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963.Leamer is not an unbiased biographer. He likes JFK despite his many, many character flaws and finds little to admire in either Joseph P. Kennedy or Bobby Kennedy. The former is described as a r [...]

    5. At times there was too much minutia while other topics were completely ignoredabsolutely no mention of the space race or his speech which compelled NASA to the moon after his death. I found the Kennedy men to be rather self-absorbed and opinionated, moreso than I had known previously and not a particularly likable lot.

    6. The first part of The Kennedy Men which focuses on the early years of the Kennedy family, is by far the more interesting part of the book, although a little too gossipy for my taste. Having read "The Patriarch: The Remarkable Life and Turbulent Times of Joseph P. Kennedy", I found that Leamer breaks no new ground in discussing Joe Kennedy and reinforces many of the stereotypes, like bootlegging and being close with the Mafia. Although I am aware that Leamer's book came first, it still portrays J [...]

    7. The Kennedy men had their good and bad times to be sure. This was a very interesting book. I would recommend this one.

    8. Clearly, this family was a dynasty, men of extraordinary charisma, power, and sense of destiny. A good addition for those who like to read about the Kennedys, this book is lengthy and detailed but reads like a novel as it summarizes with the perspective of time. The book represents a compilation of earlier writings about the Kennedys and newly released tapes and documents. Interspersed with Kennedy gossip is a lot of analysis of the political maneuvering surrounding the Bay of Pigs and Viet Nam [...]

    9. I enjoyed it. It taught me a lot that I didn't understand about the history I remember from my youth, but also about how the Kennedys came to dominate the politics of the US in the middle of the 20th century. I didn't know how ill JFK was or how much of a womaniser all the men were. The mafia connection was overplayed by the people who used to dish up the scandals about them, I suppose there was a little truth in it but they certainly weren't involved in organised crime to the extent that the go [...]

    10. It was so interesting in parts, and so hard to get through in parts. The political sections were just not interesting to me- I wanted to know about JFK the man. (And the others) I was disappointed that it did not tell me the fates of Joe, Bobby, Teddy, John Jr, et cetera. It just ended with JFKs death! I now know there is another book out, but I'm not sure I can make it through a full book on it. Took me a month to push through this one. The most interesting thing was learning that JFK was such [...]

    11. This is not quite as valiant an effort as Leamer's first Kennedy book, The Kennedy Women. It was still enjoyable and interesting, but it's a bit disconcerting that Leamer reveals the truth about the Kennedys' behavior, but never analyzes it and draws a conclusion. His original thought is what really made "The Kennedy Women," and is lacking in his second book.

    12. The limited scope of this book makes it excellent reading. the descriptions of the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban missile crisis are very succinct and clear. There's hardly any mention of the Kennedys' understanding of the civil rights movement and Edward is given very short shrift. Still, a very good biography.

    13. Very good book, lots of information however a bit fuzzy. Well researched but it reads more like a psychological fiction then historical biography. The author has a lot of symphathy for the Kennedy's and is diminishing some of their sins. Nevertheless it is rather devastating reading for Kennedy's myth.

    14. I really enjoyed the book. I learned a lot of history too. Thank goodness the press had respect for public figures at that time. Some times it's best to only know the good side of people. The only thing that could've made the book better, is if it would have continued with The lives of the last two Kennedy men.

    15. I am reading this book right now. If I didn't have to feed my husband and clean, I probably would be finished with it by now. Very interesting and insightful. I have learned many thing so far, not just about the Kennedy men. I would recommend this to someone who is interested in Kennedy history.

    16. Took me forever to finish, but I did enjoy it. Tons of information but the most fascinating sections were those that stripped away the veneer of respectability and exposed the ruthlessness of all the Kennedy's.

    17. Another excellent book on the Kennedy family by this author. I lost some interest once Jack's political career to center stage, but very much enjoyed the start of the book which spoke about the family's origins and Joe.

    18. Different look at the Kennedy'sThis book is a hard read. It is insightful and shows a different view of this family. At first I thought the author really disliked the family as most of the things he said about them were harsh, he did soften his view of some of the men.

    19. This was an interesting look at the Kennedys. It does not whitewash faults and flaws but then it does not ignore the truth of virtues either

    20. A helluva read -- I definitely recommend it. It was eye-opening for me and I learned a great deal about these great men.
