    1. I would have LOVED this book I have long been interested in Ted Kennedy s role within the Kennedy family, being the surviving brother with a long career pushing items in the Senate that I support I opened The Kennedy Legacy with a sense of high expectation and preliminary satisfaction Until Mr Bzdek crushed all of it less than 50 pages in with incorrect facts about Kathleen Kennedy Friends, family and those of you who have read enough of my Kennedy book reviews know that Kathleen is my favorite [...]

    2. This is a very short but good summary of the four Kennedy brothers and how they built upon each other s legacies It starts off talking about all four of them Joe Jr Jack, Bobby and Teddy Yes, they talk about the other members of the family especially their father, Joe Sr However the first part is about the brothers growing up and their rivalries It explores how they became who they were and why It also explores the roles that each brother was supposed to play and how it all got changed as each o [...]

    3. Though three Kennedy brothers grace the cover of this book and the fallen oldest brother, Joe Jr is a strong presence as well , the focus is on the youngest brother, Ted Author Vincent Bzdek s thesis is signaled by the title While much of the vast literature on the Kennedys focuses on their unfilled legacy, Bzdek argues that their goals have found fulfillment largely through Ted Kennedy s decades of service in the United States Senate.Bzdek s portrait of Edward Kennedy is an unflinching one He p [...]

    4. Big brother John had challenged people to do something for their country Bobby had called on them to care for the dispossessed By the example of his durability, Ted exhorted them to never, ever quit So states Vincent Bzdek in a wonderful work that not only describes the lives and work of the three Kennedy brothers, Jack, Bobby and Ted, but integrates and contrasts their achievements, styles, and challenges The book is clearly divided into acts collection of chapters featuring the dominate brothe [...]

    5. A well done, if overly positive, look at the four Kennedy brothers and how they influenced one another It does help to already know some of the family history when you pick this one up.Where else but in Gothic fiction, where else among real people, could one encounter such triumphs and tragedies, such beauty and charm and ambition and pride and human wreckage, such dedication to the best and lapses into the mire of life such vulgar, noble, driven, generous, self centered, loving, suspicious, dev [...]

    6. The stories were intriguing even if the writing style was a bit dry It was a very interesting read, and I especially enjoyed reading about the unlikely friendship between Sen Ted Kennedy and Sen Orrin Hatch.

    7. Teddy doesnt get enough credit because he was not flashy, but I have to admit if I had the aura of JFK and the moxy of RFK I would be beloved too

    8. I always enjoy reading about the Kennedy s This was an easy history read that spans from Joe to Teddy It is not as specific as some other ones but well written.

    9. I ended up reading pieces and parts of this book some of what I read was very interesting, while some of the other stuff was same old same old.
