A major new biography of John F. Kennedy Jr. from a leading historian who was also a close friend, America's Reluctant Princeis a deeply researched, personal, surprising, and revealing portrait of the Kennedy heir the world lost too soon. Through the lens of their decades-long friendship and including exclusive interviews and details from previously classified documents, noted historian andNew York Timesbestselling author Steven M. Gillon examines John F. Kennedy Jr.'s life and legacy from before his birth to the day he died. Gillon covers the highs, the lows, and the surprising incidents, viewpoints, and relationships that John never discussed publicly, revealing the full story behind JFK Jr.'s complicated and rich life. In the end, Gillon proves that John's life was far more than another tragedy-rather, it's the true key to understanding both the Kennedy legacy and how America's First Family continues to shape the world we live in today.… (plus d'informations)

John F Kennedy, Jr. was forever encompassed by and surrounded by history. The world viewed him as either the little boy who saluted his slain father as a 3-year-old, or as a sex symbol.
He seems to have wanted to stay away from both of those images. ( )
  JReynolds1959 | Aug 22, 2021 |
The author was a friend of JFK, Jr. While not a member of the inner circle, he was invited to various events, and was a professor of John in his undergraduate history classes.

Like many professors who taught John, there was a overwhelming note that John did not apply himself. He was lazy, coming to a professor the day a paper was due and asking what topic he should use for the paper, was a normal way of JFK, Jr.'s way of plodding through school.

His undergraduate total GPA was 2.2. Later after law school, once again, because of complacency, he failed the NY bar exam twice.

Many will remember the tiny boy child/son of John F. Kennedy, America's carasmatic president who was tragically assignated in November of 1963 at Dealy Plaza in Dallas, Texas.

It was this little son who bravely saluted his father's procession during the long service.

While not all the book portrayed him as lazy and bratty, he was a consummate risk taker.

Often, friends watched in terror as he performed actions that most would never attempt.

His mother had the strongest bond with him, and tried as best as possible to make him a normal child, person.

He married stunningly beautiful, self centered Caroline Basset. Their marriage was on the rocks when he took his plane in the air headed for Martha's Vineyard. The flying conditions were terrible, and seasoned pilots returned to the original airport because the haze created extremely dangerous conditions.

Pilots far more experienced returned, he kept going. His plane never reached the Kennedy compound. His body as well as his wife and her sister were found weeks later.
