Synopsis:

Senator Edward M. Kennedy's death in August, 2009 was a time for a major reassessment of his life and career, as well as of his place in American history. Kennedy's great achievements and his acknowledged (and perhaps equally great) flaws were the subject of much media review, adding to the accounts in the many books already in print on both the senator himself and on the entire Kennedy clan. TRUE COMPASS stands out as Ted Kennedy's own assessment of his public and private life. It is based on many decades of personal journals, as well as a five-years-long oral history project at the University of Virginia. In his own words, he shares his perspective on the strong bonds within his family--especially among himself and his brothers John and Robert--the many tragedies that befell them, his relations with colleagues, and his long service in the U. S. Senate, where he authored over 2,500 bills, many which were on health care and education. Kennedy seems inextricably linked to more than a half-century of American history, and, in TRUE COMPASS, he himself brings out the coherence and integrity of a life fully lived. Kennedy also directly addresses his views on the Warren Commission report, the events in Chappaquiddick in 1969, and the good fortune of finding true love late in life. Kennedy seems inextricably linked to more than a half-century of American history, and, in TRUE COMPASS, he shows that a life that seems at times to be directionless, can be set back on course. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the 100 Best Books of 2009.
