I guess you could call me a "Kennedy expert." I've read oodles of books about the Kennedy family, including biographies of JFK, Jackie, Rose Kennedy, Kit Kennedy, and Rosemary Kennedy; the Kennedy assassination; and the whole Kennedy family since the 1960s. I also have a bunch more to get to someday. Following are five of the most informative of the Kennedy books I've read. (Of course, I couldn't choose just three!)
Killing Kennedy is a scene-by-scene examination of the Kennedy assassination.
Mrs. Kennedy and Me is written by Jackie Kennedy's secret service detail, Clint Hill.
Jackie's Girl is the memoir of Kathy McKeon, Jackie's personal assistant and sometimes nanny, of her time with Jackie and her children in the years following the president's assassination.
Rose Kennedy is a biography of the Kennedy matriarch, Rose (JFK's mother).
After Camelot is a comprehensive look at the Kennedy family after the assassinations of President Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy. Lots of dirt in this one.
