    "Best biography is a matter of taste of course but this book seems likely to satisfying to all with an interest in the supposed greatest writer in English ever. Some people want slice of the life of their subject, this appears at 600 pages to cover that almost novel-ish desire. If the want facts, figure, specifics in depth, that would seem likely, but provided in the least dry manner. Nearly a five star rating fro over 70 people, I would be confident that this will meet the wants of all."

    "This work will be particularly interesting for scholars specializing in the South and in the various forms of cultural diffusion that went on there due to the slave trade, but it is not strictly a narrative biography. No real particular individual fully has their life story mapped out here. It is an interesting work of sociology and history, but perhaps not necessarily even a biography to begin with."

    "I hesitated to buy this book, because I knew about Kennedy's clashes with Roosevelt and Churchill during the Second World War, and willingness to negotiate with Hitler, and such behavior and attitudes were repugnant to me. Nonetheless, I can't resist a good, long, well-researched biography, particularly about someone who, like Kennedy, played an important role in the New Deal. I was pleasantly surprised to find this biography to be objective, informative and no hagiography. While the author clearly does not dislike Kennedy, he pulls no punches in describing Kennedy's defeatist, concessionary attitudes, not merely at the outset, but during the early years of the War. In addition, however, because the author is a good historian, he provides us with a basis on which to understand the conflicting opinions that prevailed at the time as to what was in Britain's and the US's long-term interests, as well Kennedy's reasons, both personal and political, for believing, as he did, that victory over Hitler, whom he despised as a dictator, was impossible."
