    Positives-Many gorgeous pictures, both colored and black and white, that seemingly captured every important event of JFK's presidency, from the first day to the last. It's a nice history lesson as you get a different feel than reading a biography which tends to only focus on the highlights. Many picture's of JFK with his family and kids as well.-Lots of pictures of Jackie Kennedy, showcasing her stylishness and elegance. It's interesting that she was only 31 when she stepped into the role.Negati [...]

    I am a "grandchild" of the 60's, so to speak. My father was heavily influenced by the politics of the 60's and thus, I was as well. He was a huge Kennedy fan, forming most of his ideals on the politics of Robert Kennedy and most of his sadness and frustrations with American society on Bobby's death. This book focuses on the only Kennedy presidency, Camelot. This book is lush and striking and truly lovely. You see the First Family in their glory and in the small moments - moments that help to rem [...]

    This is a 'forever' book. Everyone remembers the moment and where they were when they heard that President Kennedy was killed. It changed the world. For the first time in history TV went to a 24 hour feed, we saw Jack Ruby shoot Oswald and Mrs. Kennedy flew home with the Johnson's, covered in blood. "I want them to see what they did." What we later saw in Mrs. Kennedy was more than grace under pressure; she will always be America's First Lady. Thanks to Caroline Kennedy who released the book and [...]

    This was a beautiful book. It is hard not to like a book filled with wonderful pictures that tell the story of a time in history that is often overshadowed by the tragic event that it ended with. Portrait of Camelot brings to you a history of the Kennedy family through a very personal portrait. Presented chronologically, it tells the tale of not only a presidency but a nation that adored and also admired this family. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to get a taste of the Kennedy's [...]

    I loved poring over the gorgeous pages of this coffee table book. The captions to the book were very informative both to the political background and on the personal lives, though I personally enjoyed the personal aspects best. So many of the photos are utterly timeless and all of them tell such rich stories.

    If a picture is worth a thousand words then this book is worth several million. I really enjoyed reading this book and seeing the well laid out and thoughtful pictures the author chose to use. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to go back to the early sixties and experience the times in which this leader passed. Overall well documented glimpse at the Kennedy years.

    This is a delightful book. Cecil Stoughton took some of the most beloved pictures of the Kennedy family, and they're all housed in this beautiful book. There are also many pictures I had never before seen, and I've read a lot of Kennedy books. The home-movie-style DVD is a great touch!

    Lots of great photos by Kennedy White House photographer Cecil Stoughton, many of which I hadn't seen before. A nice book to get you in the mood for the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's inauguration in 2011!

    I would love to own this book. I have never seen such up close and personal photos. Especially, one particular photo of Jackie smoking while almost 9 months pregnant. You can even see the pack of Newport's next to her ashtray. It amazed me!

    Not enuf pics of Jackie, not just as a style icon but also in the First Lady role & as a wife & mother. Still the history pops out at you through the camera lens

    Worth the read for the DVD that comes with the book that is basically Kennedy Family Movies. Very nice book of the Kennedy era day to day.

    Secretly it's a picture book, but it was amazing. I am on a quest to learn about Camelot.

    This is a very entertaining book about the Kennedys. IT's essentially a Look or LIfe magazine type look back at the first family. There is a CD enclosed with it as well. The home movies are of Kennedy mostly out on the water. It's a lovely look back.
