Highly recommended..................

Us humans tend to be complicated beings - Bobby Kennedy maybe more than  most.  Tye's sympathetic treatment of Bobby Kennedy focuses on RFK's growth and evolution as a human soul.  Having said that, Tye does not shrink from showing Bobby at his worst.  Warts and all are on full display, some of it is not very pretty.   The fifteen + years that Bobby Kennedy was front and center in American politics was an impactful era in our history.  I know learning of his assassination that early June morning in 1968 had an impact on the sixteen-year-old me.  One thing Tye does not do is ask, "What if?"   It is a question I have asked myself more than once.  If you like politics and history, do read this book.
