John F. Kennedy with Abraham Bolden, the first black Secret Service agent assigned to the Presidential Protective Division, appointed by JFK in 1961. Kennedy once introduced him as "the Jackie Robinson of the Secret Service," a comment which brought tears to Bolden's eyes.

I am so not a Kennedy person, but my friend Dawn told me I had to read it and I finally did. It was phenomenal. I was born in 1981 so I have only ever heard generic text book things about the Kennedy's and the assassination. This book was so well written, however, that I felt like I was there.
