spendid addition to US history library

By

This is a great companion to ASK NOT (one of the best books on Kennedy's Inaugural Address. Absolutely fascinating detail about the changes made by JFK on the spot and how the speech was created. If you inform yourself you can lay to rest forever the idea that JFK had nothing to do with the speech and Stevenson or Sorenson wrote this speech. They all made suggestions but the magic was almost purely Kennedy's. A great book that will become a permanent part of your library.

This book brings the reader into the process of a shift in power and the process of speech writing. The reader has a front row seat at the Kennedy Inaugural minus the freezing temperatures. Very well done Levenger!

What a wonderful glimpse into how recent history comes together. This book outlines the transition of power and the effort that goes into speechmaking. The handwritten, notes and smart manner in which it comes together gives you a front row view at the Kennedy Inauguration.

A really great book.

What I enjoyed most was that it gave me an insight into his thought process. You actually got to see his inaugural address from it's first conception to his speech, with all the different drafts and his personal notes / rewrites in between. I highly recommend it.

It's almost 3-D

By

A really neat book. The facsimiles stand out so wll, it's like they're 3-dimensional. Levenger did a really nice job on this. I don't remember JFK--I was too young--but I've always been fascinated by him and his time as president. This is a great way to experience his history.
