Tretick's achievement is the masterful construction of legend through careful framing and omission-and teamwork . This book is a treasure, even 50 years later

The most eye-opening celebrity biography of our time. This book is a treasure, even 50 years later. Stanley Tretick was one of the premier photo-journalists of his day, and it is a pleasure to have this collection of his best photos of JFK and his family. Good quality book and reasonably priced.

The Sinners from Mitar The Sinners from Mitar
Words fail in approaching this book for those of us who lived through the Kennedy years. Those years were as close as this nation has ever come to having dignity in the Washington scene that held the aura of a monarchy. That is not to say that JFK and his legacy were `supreme rulers', but instead that there was a glow about the life of the Kennedys made more poignant by the disruption of those lives with assassination, fatal plane crashes and death by cancer.

Fortunately those moments in Camelot were captured by photojournalist Stanley Tretick and this fine book shares not only the dignity of the Kennedy years but the warmth of the large family that drew a country together in a way few other presidents have been able to achieve.

The images here are often snapshots instead of formal portraiture and that is another aspect that makes the collection so gentle. These were years of change and of growth and of significant moments. Tretick captured it all. It was his job, but it was an act of love - and that shows very well. This is an album to collect, a trove of memories that are irreplaceable. Grady Harp, February 13

This book is sheer pleasure and if you love and admire President Kennedy you will want this book. Stanley Tretick took the pictures that appeared on the Look cover on sale the day President Kennedy was assassinated. I was in the drug store that Friday evening and saw it…but as a child I did not realize it would sell out and when I came back that Sunday it was gone. The stories told are about the campaign, election, presidency, assassination, the life of his family after his assassination. Very touching and definitely worth keeping!

This book is a treasure, even 50 years later. Stanley Tretick was one of the premier photo-journalists of his day, and it is a pleasure to have this collection of his best photos of JFK and his family. Good quality book and reasonably priced. This Kennedy-phile would have preferred a larger (dimensions) edition, but this will do quite nicely and is well worth having. Kitty Kelly, not my favorite writer, adds some narrative and insight here and there, especially about Mr. Tretick, but the book could stand alone on its photographic content if needed. Brought back wonderful memories!

Tetrick and Kelly seemed to be perpetual gossips more focused on making a buck than releasing pieces of quality. Kelly's "Jackie Oh!" was full of gossip by people who mostly had a very distant relationship with the former first lady. I did enjoy the rare glimpse into some correspondence of Jackie's but otherwise I found the book as disappointing as "Jackie Oh!".

Good packaging.. A little rough, but hey it's been around for a while. My students are loving it. I spent threes hours looking at it. So glad I found it on your site.. Will look for more goodies on here as well.

Photos are amazingly colorful and is bound well. My husband loved it
This is a good book to read and then have it on your coffee table. It is a nice book for someone to pick up and look through it. It captures some of the stories we had heard about and some we had not. I love this book and my interest in the Kennedy family. I especially love the cover.
