She was America's sweetheart; the embodiment of grace, elegance, style, charm, and-as the world discovered in late 1963-bravery. And though much has been written about the most famous woman of the 20th century, no biography has revealed the true Jackie; none has successfully separated the truth from the lies, or portrayed the Queen of Camelot in all her complexity-until now. With access to Jackie's own writings, the archives of the John F. Kennedy Library, and those who knew her best, bestselling celebrity biographer Donald Spoto illuminates Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and the sixty-five years of her life with candor, compassion and compelling detail. Readers will discover:* The early years: a privileged but lonely childhood that shaped Jackie's resilience and poise, working as a photojournalist for the Washington Times-Herald, and meeting a handsome congressman named Kennedy* Life as the first lady: dealing with Jack's infidelity, adjusting to life in the spotlight, and her influence on the policies of the Kennedy Administration* Mrs. Onassis: life after Jack, marrying the Greek tycoon, her accomplished career as a book editor, her final days, and much more

I'm old enough to have read more about the Kennedys but I have not, until recently. Somebody gave me that book co-authored by the secret service agent that was assigned to Jackie after the electoral victory in 1960. THAT book is very boring with few insights into Jackie. but, this book provides a lot of insight into her youth and family life. As it happens, I read and then walk away for a couple days and then come back into the book. It is very easy to get back into the story. The reader is well-oriented to the time frame of the narrative. Obviously, the book is meant to be flattering to her and that's OK with me. This book puts Jackie advising the President on many policy issues. almost portraying her as bailing him out at times. If there's a book on the "dirt" in Jackie's life, that book will be on my "nah" list.

The book portrays her mother as teaching her to "marry rich" and the author portrays her as accepting and acting out her role as a member of American royalty.

Nice overview but nothing new in this read. Jackie's life has been written about for 50 years and until someone within the family decides to write something, I doubt we will learn much more about her. Spoto's book might be okay for someone who has not ever read a book on the subject but is disappointing for someone who has read about Jackie before.

I found this biography a positive look at Jackie's life -- but not an introspective one. She is a perfect icon, according to this book. Onassis was barely half a chapter for the whole marriage, and she was a paragon while editing. Nary a negative word. I was looking for much more insight into her character, not just a description of her life.

Read any Jackie Kennedy Onassis book and most information will be confirmed in factual threads of truth. This title offers a focus to Jackie's family of origin in early childhood.Did you know her grandpa paid school's tuition pricetag equal to the average annual income in the 1930s? Did you know this school's guest speaker was Pearl S. Buck? Do you know Jackie had a relative with a background in theatre?
Are we surprised to learn son John had a desire to pursue the theatre (did he inherit talent?)? Are we surprised to read Jackie's admonition to turn away?
This title causes me to consider Joe Kennedy's influence on Jackie in the area of directing an adult child's life. Joe Kennedy ruled with iron to reach Kennedy destiny. Jackie's gracious hand would never be described as iron, but you must agree the consequence was "this way or else". This title and others lightly allude to the lessons Jackie learned sitting at the feet of this mighty father-in-law. Is it possible to read this book without hlighter pens and Post-It notes for reference? I don't think so.

Was more about her early life than the White House years and later

I liked the book. I have read several Jaqueline Kennedy biographies. Some interesting, some voyeuristic, some downright offensive. Mr. Spoto writes well. To say the book is boring because he did not write a sex exposé is unfair. He is respectful, informative and yet entertaining. There may be nothing new in this biography but it's always a pleasure to read about Jacqueline Kennedy.
