As special assistant to the president, Arthur Schlesinger witnessed firsthand the politics and personalities that influenced the now legendary Kennedy administration. Schlesinger's close relationship with JFK, as a politician and as a friend, has resulted in this authoritative yet intimate account in which the president , walks through the pages, from first to last, alert, alive, amused and amusing (John Kenneth Galbraith). A THOUSAND DAYS is at once a masterly literary achievement and a work of major historical significance. (New York Times).
