Description

They were the original power couple-outlandishly rich, impossibly attractive, and endlessly fascinating. Now, in this rare behind-the-scenes portrait of the Kenne-dys in their final year together, #1 New York Times bestselling biographer Christopher Andersen shows us a side of JFK and Jackie we've never seen before. Tender, intimate, complex, and, at times, explosive, theirs is a love story unlike any other-filled with secrets, scandals, and bomb-shells that could never be fully revealed ... until now.

Andersen reveals stunning new details about the Kennedys' rumored affairs-hers as well as his-and how they ultimately overcame all odds to save their marriage; the president's many premonitions of his own death and how he repeatedly tried to pull out of his last fateful trip to Dallas; shocking revelations about how the couple, unaware of the dangers, became dependent on amphetamine injections, the real reason-according to his longtime personal physician-for JFK's notorious libido; how the tragic death of their infant son Patrick led to an emotional outpouring from the president that surprised even their closest friends-and brought JFK and Jackie closer than they had ever been; and touching firsthand accounts of the family's most private moments, before and after the assassination.

Drawing on hundreds of interviews conducted with the Kennedys' inner circle-from family members and lifelong friends to key advisors and political confidants-Andersen takes us deeper inside the world of the president and his first lady than ever before. Unsparing yet sym-pathetic, bigger than life but all too real, These Few Precious Days captures the ups and downs of a marriage, a man, and a woman, the memories of which will continue to fascinate and inspire for generations to come.
