Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  "The days dwindle down, to a precious few . . ." -from "September Song," JFK's favorite They were the original power couple- outlandishly rich, impossibly attractive, and endlessly fascinating. Now, in this rare, behind-the-scenes portrait of the Kenne-dys in their final year together, #1 New York Times bestselling biographer Christopher Andersen shows us a side of JFK and Jackie we've never seen before. Tender, intimate, complex, and, at times, explosive, theirs is a love story unlike any other-filled with secrets, scandals, and bomb-shells that could never be fully revealed . . . until now. Including: · Stunning new details about the Kennedys' rumored affairs-hers as well as his-and how they ultimately overcame all odds to save their marriage · The president's many premonitions of his own death, and how he repeatedly tried to pull out of his last fateful trip to Dallas · Shocking revelations about how the couple, unaware of the dangers, became dependent on amphetamine injections, the real reason- according to his longtime personal physician- for JFK's notorious libido, and how the White House hid his many serious medical problems from the public · How the tragic death of their infant son Patrick led to an emotional outpouring from the president that surprised even their closest friends-and brought JFK and Jackie closer than they had ever been · Touching firsthand accounts of the family's most private moments, before and after the assassination Drawing on hundreds of interviews conducted with the Kennedys' inner circle-from family members and lifelong friends to key advisors and political confidantes-Andersen takes us deeper inside the world of the president and his first lady than ever before. Unsparing yet sym-pathetic, bigger than life but all too real, These Few Precious Days captures the ups and downs of a marriage, a man, and a woman, the memories of which will continue to fascinate and inspire for generations to come.
