In this powerful, far-reaching collection, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Eric Freedman and psychologist-biographer Edward Hoffman bring John F. Kennedy to vibrant life through his own words, examining the broad range of his thinking on such topics as racism, religion and faith, peace, war and terrorism, partisan politics, business and employment, welfare, education, celebrities and world leaders, technology, the futures, and his vision for the United States. 

US Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan stated: "John F. Kennedy is one of the most quoted leaders of our time. In this remarkable collection of some of his lesser-known words, Freedman and Hoffman offer a renewed look at his tremendous impact on American history." 

Professor Bryan Mark Rigg of American Military University commented: "An amazing collection...full of largely unknown, but powerful and insightful ideas."
