The long-awaited, authoritative, single-volume biography of John F. Kennedy, by one of America's greatest historians. "An unfinished life" is the first major, single-volume life of John F. Kennedy to be written by a historian in nearly four decades. Drawing upon previously unavailable material and never-before-opened archives to tell Kennedy's story, "An unfinished life" is packed with revelations large and small. We learn for the first time just how sick Kennedy was, what medications he took and concealed from all but a few, and how severely his medical condition affected his actions as President. We learn for the first time the real story of how Bobby was selected as Attorney General. Dallek reveals exactly what Jack's father did to help his election to the presidency, and he follows previously unknown evidence to show what path JFK would have taken in the Vietnam entanglement had he survived.

Perhaps its on the whole better that a biography tend to favour its subject, but it can be taken a too far, as in this biography of the perfidious, lecherous, and drug addled former president, probably among the worst ever. So many of his qualities are twisted try to seem as virtues by the author. The writing itself is clear and flows well, and the narration is with a clear, deep voice.
