As far back as the first debate with John F. Kennedy in 1960, Nixon had learned, bitterly, the importance of television. And as early as 1966, he had set out to master this new media. One of his first moves in putting together a team for the 1968 campaign was the appointment of seasoned advertising and TV professionals. This book examines that move and the many other considerations that went into Richard M. Nixon's 1968 presidential campaign--at the heart of which was the adroit manipulation and use of television

The last brother by Joe McGinniss( Book )

22 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Last Brother, Joe McGinniss brings to startling and disturbing life the childhood, the brief triumph, and the long downward slide of the last Kennedy brother ... and exposes, as never before, the chilling reality behind the glittering facade of America's First Dysfunctional Family, as well as the terrible cost of Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy's dark ambitions for his children - even the last and least of them." "His book focuses in particular on the extraordinary sixties, a decade that began in glory for the family with Jack's ascension to the presidency, and ended - after the murders of Jack and Bobby, the tragedy at Chappaquidick, and their father's death - with Teddy, the last brother, standing alone in the rubble of Camelot." "While The Last Brother is both shocking and newsworthy, Teddy Kennedy emerges as a curiously tragic figure, the victim of his own family, forever "the fat, awkward little boy" who was ignored by his siblings, his father and his mother, then propelled, unwilling and unprepared, into the public limelight." "Searing, yet strangely moving and even sympathetic, The Last Brother presents a detailed, tragic portrait of a man at war with himself, doomed to live in the giant shadow of his brothers, trapped in the glorious but hollow Kennedy myth, longing - but unable - to escape."--Jacket
Never enough by Joe McGinniss( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 1,645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nancy Kissel had it all: glamour, wealth, and what a friend described as "the best marriage in the universe." That marriage--to Merrill Lynch investment banker Robert Kissel--ended abruptly one night in 2003 in their luxury apartment high above Hong Kong's glittering Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong prosecutors, who charged Nancy with murder, said she wanted to inherit Rob's millions and start a new life with a blue-collar lover. She said she'd killed while fighting for her life against an abusive, cocaine-addicted husband. Less than a year later, Rob's brother Andrew, a Connecticut real estate tycoon facing prison for fraud and embezzlement, was found stabbed in the back in the basement of his multimillion-dollar mansion. This is the harrowing true story of these two brothers, who grew up wanting to own the world but instead wound up murdered half a world apart; and of a modern American woman for whom having it all might not have been enough.--From publisher description

At thirty-nine, Nancy Kissel had it all: the royal lifestyle of the expatriate wife, three young children and what a friend described as "the best marriage in the universe." That marriage--to investment banker Robert Kissel--ended one November night in 2003 in their luxury apartment high above Hong Kong's glittering Victoria Harbour when Robert was murdered and Nancy became the prime suspect. Her 2005 trial captivated Hong Kong's expatriate community and attracted global attention. Less than a year after the jury returned its unexpected verdict, Rob's brother, Andrew, was also found dead: stabbed in the back at his multimillion-dollar Greenwich mansion.

The big horse by Joe McGinniss( )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The big horse," in racing vernacular, is the animal that brings fame and fortune to a stable. He's the heavyweight champion, the All-American quarterback, the four-legged Michael Jordan of the barn. Seabiscuit was once Tom Smith's "big horse." A generation ago, Secretariat was Lucien Lauren's. In 2003, Funny Cide was Barclay Tagg's. In sixty years as a trainer, P.G. Johnson had never had one -- until Volponi. P.G. Johnson was a blue-collar wizard, a hardscrabble tough guy who had come east from Chicago, determined to make his mark on New York. And he did. He became leading trainer at all three New York tracks -- Saratoga, Belmont, and Aqueduct -- as well as at Florida's Tropical Park. And he did it without ever winning a Triple Crown or Breeders' Cup event, or having "the big horse." "I never knew how to kiss rich people's asses, and I got too old to learn. If no owner was going to give me a big horse, I figured I'd have to find one myself," he said. He did that, in his seventies, buying a mare for $8,000, breeding her to a $20,000 stallion, and in 1998 producing Volponi, the horse that would change his life. In October 2002, weakened by surgery and radiation treatment for cancer, P.G. watched Volponi -- the longest shot in the field at 43 to 1 -- bring home more than $2 million by winning the Breeders' Cup Classic, the richest race in America. The following summer at Saratoga, McGinniss -- journalist, investigative reporter, and horse racing obsessive -- began showing up, more Tuesdays with Morrie than Guys and Dolls, at P.G.'s barn in the predawn hours to listen to the inside racing stories and lore P.G. had gathered. McGinniss came to appreciate that Johnson was not only a stellar horseman but an American original whose wit and wisdom carried far beyond the confines of the racetrack. As for Volponi, the big horse had given P.G. the perfect Disney ending with the Breeders' Cup victory, and, indeed, Disney soon bought film rights to P.G.'s life story. "He'll be even better next year," P.G. had said, but by the time McGinniss got to Saratoga, Volponi had not won a race in nine months. His faith undiminished, P.G. continued to race Volponi against the best, at Saratoga and beyond, until in the end it came down to the 2003 Breeders' Cup Classic in Santa Anita, a race only one horse in history had ever won twice. As fires burned in the Southern California hills, Volponi -- with Funny Cide's jockey, Jose Santos, in the saddle -- ran the last race of his life. This book is about what happened that day, about what came after, and about much of what had come before. It's the most exciting, rewarding, and heartwarming story about the world of horse racing that you'll ever read, by one of America's finest writers, at the top of his form
