The Kennedy curse : why America's first family has been haunted by tragedy for 150 years by Edward Klein( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 2,461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing upon scores of interviews with people who have never spoken out before, troves of private documents, archives in Ireland and America, and private conversations with Jackie, Klein explores the underlying pattern that governs the Kennedy Curse." "The reader is treated to penetrating portraits of the Irish immigrant Patrick Kennedy; Rose Kennedy's father, "Honey Fitz"; the dynasty's founding father, Joe Kennedy, and his ill-fated daughter Kathleen; President Kennedy; accused rapist William Kennedy Smith; and the star-crossed lovers, JFK Jr. and Carolyn Bessette. Each of the seven profiles demonstrates the basic premise of this book: The Kennedy Curse is the result of the destructive collision between the Kennedys' fantasy of omnipotence - an unremitting desire to get away with things that others cannot - and the cold, hard realities of life."--Jacket

From the moment Jacqueline Kennedy stepped into the White House, she inspired a generation of Americans and changed the face of a nation. But underneath the glitter and the hype, just who was Jackie? In this carefully detailed chronicle, the author has amassed a wealth of exclusive information from private documents and correspondence, FBI files, and hundreds of interviews with Jackie's friends, the associates of her second husband, Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, and her longtime lover, the mysterious diamond merchant Maurice Templesman. In this book, many people break their silence for the first time, answering dozens of questions: Why did Jackie marry Onassis? Was it only for the money? How did she react when Onassis resumed his affair with Maria Callas? What was the real reason their marriage fell apart? When Jackie returned to New York, how did she rebuild her future on a tarnished and clouded past? When did Maurice Templesman enter her life, and what role did he play in helping Jackie build her fortune? How did Jackie spend her time during those very private New York years? More than a portrait of a famous celebrity, Edward Klein's work captures the essence of a woman whose passion for wealth was matched only by her deep need for privacy. In Just Jackie, Klein reveals how Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis finally found the love and contentment she was searching for all her life
The amateur : Barack Obama in the White House by Edward Klein( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 1,721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times bestselling author Edward Klein in his new political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public's growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama's toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance have run our nation and his presidency off the rails. "Obama was both completely inexperienced and ideologically far to the left of Americans when he entered the White House," says Klein. "And he was so arrogant that he didn't even know what he didn't know." Klein, who is known for getting the inside scoop on everyone from the Kennedys to the Clintons, reveals never-before-published details about the Obama administration's political inner workings and about Barack and Michelle's personal lives. From Obama's conceited and detached demeanor, to his detrimental reliance on Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett's advice, to the Obamas' extravagant and out-of-touch lifestyle, The Amateur reveals a president whose blatant ignorance and incompetence is sabotaging himself, his presidency, and America

Katie : the real story by Edward Klein( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past 25 years--first as the blithe spirit of the Today show, then as the only woman ever to anchor a nightly network news program solo--Katie Couric has been familiar to millions. Yet despite the public exposure, few have penetrated the secrets behind her closely guarded personal life and her struggles in the cutthroat world of television news. In this probing portrait, biographer Klein shows us the strong, independent woman and the needy wife and lover; the grieving widow famed for her kindness to others and the competitive diva; the consummate interviewer and the stumbling anchor. Drawing on scores of interviews, Klein chronicles Katie's rise to the top--from her early days at CNN and local television to her 15-year run on Today. Neither a whitewash nor a hatchet job, this is an unflinching look at a remarkable woman and the media kingdom she's sought to rule.--From publisher description

Ted Kennedy : the dream that never died by Edward Klein( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an exploration of the personal and professional life of Ted Kennedy that discusses his family, romantic relationships, political career, involvement in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, and other related topics. In the most inspiring speech of his career, Ted Kennedy once vowed: "For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die." Unlike his martyred brothers, John and Robert, whose lives were cut off before the promise of a better future could be realized, Ted lived long enough to make many promises come true. During a career that spanned an astonishing half-century, he put his imprint on every major piece of progressive legislation, from health care and education to civil rights. There were times during that career, such as after the incident in Chappaquiddick, when Ted seemed to have surrendered to his demons. But there were other times, after one of his inspiring speeches on the floor of the Senate, for example, when he was compared to Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, John Calhoun, and other great lawmakers of the past. Indeed, for most of his life, Ted Kennedy played a kaleidoscope of roles, from destructive thrill seeker to constructive lawmaker; from straying husband to devoted father and uncle. In this work the biographer at last reconciles these contradictions, painting an original, up-to-the-moment portrait of Ted Kennedy and his remarkable late-in-life redemption. Drawing on a vast store of original research and unprecedented access to Ted Kennedy's political associates, friends, and family, he takes the reader behind the scenes to reveal many secrets. Among them: Why Caroline Kennedy, at Ted's urging, aspired to fill the New York Senate vacancy but then suddenly and unexpectedly withdrew her candidacy; How Ted ended his longest-lasting romantic relationship to marry Victoria Reggie, and the unexpected effect that union had on his personal and political redemption; What transpired between the parents of Mary Jo Kopechne and Ted Kennedy during two private meetings at Ted's home; Which feuds are likely to erupt within the Kennedy family in the wake of Ted's demise, and what will become of Ted's fortune and political legacy. This book does not shrink from portraying the erratic side of Ted Kennedy and his former wife, Joan. But both in spirit and tone, it is a compassionate celebration of a complex man who, in the winter of his life, summoned the best in himself to come to the aid of his troubled nation
