Many people feel that Kennedy's term was full if image boosting events and lacked substance and outstanding accomplishments. Kennedy appealed to the public with his style and looks.

Corps and the space program, with his foreign issues full of flaws and mistakes. From my understanding his looks and elegance, with the aid of the television, sold himself to the public. He enlightened the people with his image, and I believe he changed the stereotype of a president, but he did not create much change in the United States. This book helped me understand better John F. Kennedy's relations ships with other political representatives.
