In this thoughtful and fascinating autobiography, White House advisor Ted Sorensen outlines the events that made his name synonymous with President Kennedy’s. This is not, however, an adoring memoir that sanitizes the author’s life with the administration. Rather, Sorensen conveys his mixed emotions regarding certain events, and relays their impact on his own life and perspectives. By delivering the material himself, Sorensen adds a personal touch. Narrating with measured tones, Sorensen allows the listener a candid glimpse of embarrassing personal events, as well as his indignation at President Kennedy’s indiscretions. At its core, Sorensen’s book provides a revealing glimpse into many of the defining events of the Kennedy administration. Sorensen’s performance adds gravitas without invoking any sense of bitterness or disingenuousness. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
