Steven M. Gillon – America’s Reluctant Prince


A New York Times best seller

A major new biography of John F. Kennedy Jr. from a leading historian who was also a close friend, Americas Reluctant Prince is a deeply researched, personal, surprising, and revealing portrait of the Kennedy heir the world lost too soon.

Through the lens of their decades-long friendship and including exclusive interviews and details from previously classified documents, noted historian and New York Times best-selling author Steven M. Gillon examines John F. Kennedy Jr.s life and legacy from before his birth to the day he died. Gillon covers the highs, the lows, and the surprising incidents, viewpoints, and relationships that John never discussed publicly, revealing the full story behind JFK Jr.’s complicated and rich life. In the end, Gillon proves that Johns life was far more than another tragedy – rather, its the true key to understanding both the Kennedy legacy and how Americas first family continues to shape the world we live in today.

The author writes honestly about JFK Jr while the love of his friend shines through every word.
Like many people in this country and around the world, I remember where I was on the day John Kennedys plane went missing. Now I understand more about what that meant to his close friends, family and our country.
