A third installment of the biographical series that began with The Kennedy Women and The Kennedy Men focuses on the sons and grandsons of JFK in the years following his assassination and features an account of John F. Kennedy, Jr.'s life as remembered by ten of his closest friends. Reprint.


One of Bobby Kennedy's first acts after JFK's assassination was to write a letter to his eldest son, reminding him of the obligations of his name. Bobby sent the letter to eleven-year-old Joe, but the message was meant for all his sons and nephews.

Sons of Camelot is the compelling story of that message and how it shaped each Kennedy son and grandson in the aftermath of President John F. Kennedy's death. Based on five years of rigorous research and unprecedented cooperation from both the Kennedys and the Shrivers, Sons of Camelot examines the lives characterized by overwhelming drama -- from the most spectacular mishaps, excesses, and tragediesto the remarkable accomplishments that have led to better lives for Americans and others around the world.

The third volume in Laurence Leamer's bestselling history of America's first family, Sons of Camelot chronicles the spellbinding journey of a message sent from a father to his son ... from a president to his people.

A great read. I thought it was going to be just another mundane book about the critizing the Kennedys.
I've read many books about the Kennedys BUT this was different and very enlightening.
I recommend for you to read if your into the "Kennedys".
