A Hero for Our Time: An Intimate Story of the Kennedy Years - Ralph G. Martin

When I was in my junior year of college, one of my best friends gave me this book as a Christmas present (1984). From the moment I began reading "A HERO FOR OUR TIME", I was wholly captivated and fascinated to learn about the many dimensions to the man and President who was John Fitzgerald Kennedy. This was a book that I COULD NOT PUT DOWN. And it was also a book that made me anxious and curious to learn more about him, this charismatic, highly intelligent, courageous, witty, and humane person. Indeed, to this day, I find President Kennedy endlessly fascinating.
