Macfadden 60-162, 1st printing


The only time he wrote to Jacqueline during their courtship, it was a postcard saying, “Wish you were here.”

He was a strong swimmer, but his workouts in the White House pool were slowed down by the light medical corset he had to wear because of his bad back.

The French chef Jacqueline hired fed him so well that he gained weight, and had to diet so his face wouldn’t appear too heavy in TV appearances.

he was modest about his wartime exploits; when someone asked him how he happened to become a hero he said, “It was involuntary. They sank my boat.”

The revealing anecdotes, the intimate details, the words and the gestures by which a person shows his true personality – you will find them all in this warm, human profile of one of the most popular men of our time.
