A revealing new portrait of Robert F. Kennedy that gets closer to the man than any book before, by bestselling author Chris Matthews, an esteemed Kennedy expert and anchor of MSNBC’s Hardball.

With his bestselling biography Jack Kennedy, Chris Matthews shared a new look of one of America’s most beloved Presidents and the patriotic spirit that defined him. Now, with Bobby Kennedy, Matthews returns with a gripping, in-depth, behind-the-scenes portrait of one of the great figures of the American twentieth century.

Overlooked by his father, and overshadowed by his war-hero brother, Bobby Kennedy was the perpetual underdog. When he had the chance to become a naval officer like Jack, Bobby turned it down, choosing instead to join the Navy as a common sailor. It was a life changing experience that led him to connect with voters from all walks of life: young or old, black or white, rich or poor. They were the people who turned out for him in his 1968 campaign. RFK would prove himself to be the rarest of politicians—both a pragmatist who knew how to get the job done and an unwavering idealist who could inspire millions.

Drawing on extensive research and interviews, Matthews pulls back the curtain on the public and private worlds of Robert Francis Kennedy. He shines a light on all the important moments of his life, from his early years and his start in politics to his crucial role as attorney general in his brother’s administration and his tragic run for president. This definitive book brings Bobby Kennedy to life like never before and is destined to become a political classic.

    Chris Matthews is a brilliant writer, especially in articulating the essence of the remarkable Robert Kennedy. I appreciated learning of the family background and Bobby’s struggle with the family patriarch. The description of backroom politics of that era was honest, even when not necessarily pretty. I also appreciated that the gory details of Jack, Martin and Bobby’s deaths were left unsaid. Finally, having been a young adult in that political period, I took a trip down memory lane but also learned so much that I didn’t remember or had never known. Thanks, Chris, for a beautiful, touching portrait of Robert Kennedy.

    WELL WRITTEN AND MR.MATHEWS BRINGS BACK TO LIFE ONE OF THE GIANTS OF MY YOUTH. IF ONLY WE HAD POLITICIANS TODAY WHO WOULD LOOK OUT FOR THE UNDERDOG AND THE POOR AS BOBBY DID. HIS EMPATHY AND COMPASSION WERE HALLMARKS OF HIS LIFE. HIS DEDICATION TO FAMILY AND COUNTRY AND TO HIS FAITH WERE WHAT SETS HIMS APARTS WITH WHAT WE HAVE TO LIVE WITH TODAY. A SAD A D GREAT LOSS AND THINGS WERE NEVER THE SAME AGAIN IN AMERICA AFTER JOHN AND BOBBY WERE GONE.
