Generally laudatory treatment of JFK. Forgoes the normal chronological recounting of Kennedy’s life and instead organizes the discussion around thirty eight personal character traits and attributes.
Rubin, who used a similar theme to write a biographical sketch of Winston Churchill, does not break any new investigative ground and for the most part does not use source material.

Overall, an easy fun read with lots of fun trivia.
