Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot by Bill O'Reilly

In January 1961, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while he learns the hardships, solitude, and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States. Along the way he acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Alan Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, powerful elements of organized crime have begun to talk about targeting the president and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy.

    I agree with Linda. My opinion of Kennedy changed somewhat earning respect for the Cuban missile crisis and space program, but disgust for his blatant infidelities and general incompetence in many areas. The book is well worth time reading and learning more although the big questions remain....

    It was good, but certainly not as compelling as "Killing Lincoln".

    There was an alternative book discussed but I don't remember the name. Does anyway else. Thinking of reading the alternative and coming. You all know how I feel about Bill O.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
