This book is often compared with the author's 1960 quasi-campaign biography of John F. Kennedy, but it is fuller and harsher in some of its judgments. Nevertheless, Burns concludes that Edward Kennedy in 1976 was "in many respects . . . far better prepared, far better equipped, than John Kennedy had been [in 1960] to lead the nation."
