A Photobiography of a President

Using a photobiography format, Martin Sandler presents the life of John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States. Sandler pairs black and white and color photographs with his own commentary and quotes from President Kennedy. From images of Kennedy’s formative years through the poignant and horrific pictures surrounding his assassination, Sandler documents the president’s life in an engaging way. He deftly navigates the touchy subjects of the President’s physical ailments and his personal indiscretions without glamorizing them. While substantial enough to use for a research paper, the general reader may simply enjoy browsing through it. Those who are interested in learning more about President Kennedy, can refer to the list of recommended books and websites that the author provides.
