#1 New York Times bestselling biographer "Christopher Andersen has a real track record when it comes to celebrity bios....He looks at Jack and Jackie Kennedy during their final year, pondering aloud whether after all the triumphs and betrayals they still loved each other" ( Library Journal #65533;).

They were the original power couple--outlandishly rich, impossibly attractive, and endlessly fascinating. Now, in this rare, behind-the-scenes portrait of the Kennedys in their final year together, #1 New York Times bestselling biographer Christopher Andersen shows us a side of JFK and Jackie that 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 bombshells that could never be fully revealed until now.

Although this book discusses a lot of events and issues which have been written about several times before, this book gives the best information about the complex marriage of Jacqueline Bouvier and John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The author grasped the essence of both their personalities and why their rocky marriage eventually improved because of their one hundred days in the White House.

Having just finished Patriarch about Old Joe, this reinforced some things. Certainly shows JFK to be a sexist just like his old man. Rose doesn't come off well in this one. Jackie shines.

Don't believe the subtitle. This book covers more than the final year and really doesn't reveal anything we haven't alread read in any of the other biographies.
