William Manchester writes that while JFKs death was a tragedy, his life was a triumph, and it is that life which he celebrates here. Culling incidents from a friendship that spanned almost two decades, Manchester recalls family gatherings at Hyannisport, grueling campaign trips, and quiet evenings alone with the President in the White House family quarters. The resulting portrait provides us with myriad anecdotes and insights into a life that bristled with vigor, competitiveness, and an unflagging drive for excellence- a life that shone with elegance, intelligence, and compassion. William Manchester is Adjunct Professor of History and Writer-in-Residence at Wesleyan University.

He is also the author of PORTRAIT OF A PRESIDENT and THE DEATH OF A PRESIDENT.Important when it was published, ONE BRIEF SHINING MOMENT remains a tribute not only to a man but to the image of service he projected. It is an antidote to disillusionment with the political scene as we enter the new millennium (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
