Rate this:
The last, defining years of the life of John F Kennedy Jr, as seen by an editor who worked for him at George magazine. At thirty-four, better known for his social life than his work as an assistant district attorney, John F Kennedy Jr was still a man in search of his destiny. All that changed in 1995 when Kennedy launched a bold new magazine about American politics, puckishly called George. Over the next four years, Kennedy's passionate commitment to the magazine - and to the ideals it stood for - transformed him. One witness to this transformation was Richard Blow, an editor and writer who joined George several months before the release of the first issue.

I didn't get the sense that the author was ever actually a friend of John's, nor did he claim to be. As such, the character of John that emerged from this particular biography was rounded out with a few previously unrevealed aspects. Though at times dry and uneventful, worth a read to anyone curious about the life and death of John Kennedy Jr.

This is a very good book that gives the reader a very unique insight into what it was like working for John.
