A Thousand Days: John F. Kennedy in the White House

Front Cover

24 Reviews
As special assistant to the president, Arthur Schlesinger witnessed firsthand the politics and personalities that influenced the now legendary Kennedy administration. Schlesinger’s close relationship with JFK, as a politician and as a friend, has resulted in this authoritative yet intimate account in which the president “walks through the pages, from first to last, alert, alive, amused and amusing” (John Kenneth Galbraith). A THOUSAND DAYS is “at once a masterly literary achievement and a work of major historical significance” (New York Times).

User Review  - Rick Johnson - Goodreads

The book contains good insights into the campaign and White House years of the Kennedy era. It definitely left me wanting to learn more about Kennedy, especially about his decision to send advisors to Vietnam. Read full review
