The bestselling first volume of this biography of John F. Kennedy by Nigel Hamilton, author of the Whitbread Award-winning biography of Field Marshal Montgomery, has caused unprecedented controversy by its frankness and its overturning of myths. But whether or not family and the political establishment like it, it is the nearest we will ever get to the JFK story from JFK's own point of view. RECKLESS YOUTH is based on a wealth of hitherto unpublished material from JFK's closest surviving friends, from FBI, Navy college and National Archives records, as well as much new material in JFK's own words. 'Nigel Hamilton's story, told with great intelligence and sympathy, is of how Jack came to terms with his inheritance and frightful upbringing . . . He has done a splendid job . . . enthralling reading, ' DAILY TELEGRAPH
