Through the lens of their decades-long friendship and including exclusive interviews and details from previously classified documents, Steven Gillon examines John F. Kennedy Jr.'s life and legacy from before his birth to the day he died. Gillon covers the highs, the lows, and the surprising incidents, viewpoints, and relationships that John never discussed publicly, revealing the full story behind JFK Jr.'s complicated and eventful life. Suppling context for Kennedy's 1999 passing, Gillon suggests that it was far more than another tragedy—rather, it's the true key to understanding both the Kennedy legacy and how America's first family continues to shape the world we live in today.
