Gripping, personal stories about the life and death of President Kennedy.

In November 22, 1963 , Dean Owen curates a fascinating collection of interviews and thought-provoking commentaries from notable men and women connected to that notorious Friday afternoon. Those who worked closely with the president, civil rights leaders, celebrities, prominent journalists, and political allies are among the many voices asked to share their reflections on the significance of that day and the legacy of JFK. A few of the names include:

* Tom Brokaw, a young reporter in Omaha in 1963
* Andy Rooney, veteran television and radio newscaster
* Letitia Baldrige, former Chief of Staff to First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy
* Congressman John Lewis, sole survivor of the "Big Six" black leaders who met the president after the March on Washington in August of 1963
* Cliff Robertson, Academy Award-winning actor who portrayed JFK in PT 109

With a compelling foreword from renowned author and journalist Helen Thomas, November 22, 1963 investigates not only where we were that day nearly fifty years ago, but where we have been since. A commemorative and insightful read, this book will unite generations.

This is one of those books that refuses to consider the possibility of conspiracy, yet offers heart warming reminiscences of encounters with the victim. Quite a large spectrum of these, however i cannot give it top marks, because i believe the murderers are still on the loose. And, catching them, and making them accountable for the horrible blow done to world history, is my priority. I will not let historical truth lapse into the haze. Nice that these people got to know this great fella, wonderful for them, but do we really need convincing that his time on earth was too short, and that his reputation as a president (world leader) might most likely have been enhanced, had he had more time? What is the point of that? To make a minor point such as that he was the most youthful, energetic chief executive we had in there, since Theodore Roosevelt, strikes me as similarly pointless. The positive references to his successor really grate on my nerves. To say, as a debater did the other night, on the 49 metro bus that the successor, his replacement, did much for the poor, is asinine. How many poor died in the rice paddies of Vietnam? How many senators' children served in that war? Look how all that money poured into destruction unbalanced our economy. JFK had put in place a timetable to get us out by 1965 (NSAM 263) which LBJ swiftly reversed (NSAM 273). Denial is not a river in Egypt. i refer you to a song by CCR: FORTUNATE SON. Also one by Lennon: WORKING CLASS HERO.
