    (verified owner):

    Howie Carr’s latest book about the Kennedy Family is even a more pleasurable read than I expected. It’s a wonderful nostalgic, amusing trip down memory lane.

    I started my read by examining and giggling at the cartoon caricatures gracing the book’s covers. Then I checked the various chapter titles for clues about their contents. I then looked at the more than 100 photos, mug shots and captions included in the book, many of which I’d never seen before. There were lots and lots of pretty, beautiful women. The magnetic Kennedy men did love to be surrounded by gorgeous willing women.

    When I started reading the text, I started with Chapter 5, entitled, “JFK: Two-Minute Man.” From there I went to Chapter 6, “Beauties in the White House.” Chapter 8, “A High Class Hooker” was next. At that point I returned to the beginning of the book and read straight through. The book didn’t begin with the story of Joseph and Rose, but with the beginning of the end of the Kennedy “Camelot Legend” as designated by Jackie Kennedy after JFK’s death. The book’s first chapter was about Ted Kennedy and his nephew William Kennedy Smith. A young single mother who had gone on a date with WKS reported being raped by him. It was in this trial that Ted Kennedy first discovered Kennedy fame and money could no longer protect them from their own lawlessness.

    JFK is of course the most interesting Kennedy in the book. After JFK the corruption and or weaknesses of the rest of the Kennedy males is spread around almost equally. After that it’s the women in the book that are the most fascinating. Fiddle and Faddle are only two of those characters. Judith Campbell Exner is another, but the beautiful, willing women are legion.

    Carr has managed to make the history of the Kennedy family live again. This book is definitely a page-turner. It’s a fun read about the sad self-caused demise of a famous Irish American dynasty. It’s amazing how so much Kennedy history has almost been forgotten. Howie brings all those stories back into focus.
