Dubious claim of authorship of book on which TV series is based
19 December 2018 | by jf_moran49See all my reviews

I have never seen this television series inspired by the non-fiction book allegedly authored by 35th President of the United States of America John F. Kennedy. Although I intend to search for some episodes of the TV series among video collectors. But I have read enough about the Kennedy political family of Massachusetts to know research has been done to show President Kennedy never actually authored the book "Profiles in Courage," for which his father, Joseph P. Kennedy, the former Ambassador to Great Britain and the first chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, helped to obtain for his second eldest son a coveted Pulitzer Prize.

The research shows the book was actually authored by Kennedy aide and speechwriter Theodore Sorensen (who was paid for his services), with assistance from Jacqueline Kennedy's history professor at Georgetown University, Jules David. in fact, so well-known was Kennedy having utilized the services of a ghostwriter for which he fraudulently received the 1957 Pulitzer of Letters and Drama in Autobiography and Biography that an anecdote circulated about the affair, to wit, "I wish that Kennedy had a little less profile and more courage," later revealed to have been made by former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.
