Something of a follow-up to his monumental JFK, The Man and the Myth, the book's only fault is that Lasky dredges up many of the same details from his JFK book. However, he compensates with Bobby's impubic perspective on things. In the end the reader will feel, that although he mowed down in his prime, it was better that he didn't get a hold on the White House. As I said, though the details can be repetitive, Lasky adds thorough research, humor, and even points out other well-done books on Bobby Kennedy. It is to be commended. Sadly, though, this book is out of print, and it shall be out of print as long as our media continue to deify the Kennedy Bros.. (Bobby's assassination also marked the toppling of the Kennedy clan with first RFK'S death, followed by his father a year later, and then Chappaquidick, which was Teddy's downfall.)
