In 1964, Jacqueline Kennedy recorded seven historic interviews about her life with John F. Kennedy. Now, for the first time, they can be heard and read in this deluxe, illustrated book and 8-CD set.

Shortly after President John F. Kennedyís assassination, with a nation deep in mourning and the world looking on in stunned disbelief, Jacqueline Kennedy found the strength to set aside her own personal grief for the sake of posterity and begin the task of documenting and preserving her husbandís legacy. In January of 1964, she and Robert F. Kennedy approved a planned oral-history project that would capture their first-hand accounts of the late President as well as the recollections of those closest to him throughout his extraordinary political career. For the rest of her life, the famously private Jacqueline Kennedy steadfastly refused to discuss her memories of those years, but beginning that March, she fulfilled her obligation to future generations of Americans by sitting down with historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., and recording an astonishingly detailed and unvarnished account of her experiences and impressions as the wife and confidante of John F. Kennedy. The tapes of those sessions were then sealed and later deposited in the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum upon its completion, in accordance with Mrs. Kennedyís wishes.

  • Jacqueline Kennedy w/tapes

    As this is a book w/CD's, the rest of the review is based on the actual story/interview being interesting and true to life. The product was received in good condition. I had 3 of these books w/the CD's.

  • Good quality paper

    I ordered this book for my mother - she loves historical informational books. She had been trying to find it in different places and was not able to. She says she likes the book - that it's very interesting. We also liked the price which was lower than we had found before in other venues. She is not very mobile and can't walk long distances, so shopping online has become very important for her entertainment.

  • Wonderful Book with CD's

    I could hardly believe I was getting a book and 8 CDs for such a low price. What a bargin it was! I have listened to 4 of the tapes so far and it is mesmerizing. I was 13 when John Kennedy was assasinated and I love to read any history about the Kennedys. It is so interesting listening to Jaqueline Kennedy tell about their life. There is so much we never knew. Do yourself a favor and purchase this set.
