I much prefer Chris Matthews the writer to Chris Matthews the tv host. I'm not really interested in people who yell their opinions at me, even if I agree with it. Every time I turn on Hardball he's yelling and not allowing anyone to finish their sentences. I wish Chris Matthews the host of Hardba...

This is an outstanding biography of Robert Frances Kennedy from an author who was a young man when RFK helped his brother John rise to the office of President, struggled mightily when his brother was assassinated, and ran for the presidency himself. The writing, though well researched, has an int...

**Apologies in advance for such a long review. I've tried reducing it but to no avail. I couldn't find a way to best explain myself without using so many words. 3.5 stars No I wasn't all choked up by the end of this, I just had something in my eyes. Who am I kidding? What happened to Jack and then...

The book is well written and researched. It covers some of the family history but primarily focuses is on Robert Kennedy, the third son....

Chris Matthews is a good, concise storyteller. Despite all of the people in the history he helps the reader keep everyone straight. His study reveals the tactics and personalities of true presidential politics. Having just read Dors Kearns Goodwin's book on LBJ this book about RFK was a great rea...

A disappointing book from a Washington insider and spirited progressive. The first two third is a rather dull much told and retold recitation of events from Kennedy's early life and early political career. The book only comes to life in 1968 and mainly because of Bobby Kennedy's quotes. Matthews...

Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit by Chris Matthews is a terrific book that really opens up a new level of the reader sees Bobby Kennedy. There seems to be a lot of books about him lately, maybe a group consciousness needing more in our leadership...peace, togetherness, love.. This is a wonderful boo...

So Bobby Kennedy is pretty much my dad's favorite politician of all time. I knew so little about him other than that his was a mighty potential to have been lost in a time when America never needed it more. That and he had earned the same two degrees I had from the same two institutions, though i...
