One of Bobby Kennedy's first acts after JFK's assassination was to write a letter to his eldest son, reminding him of the obligations of his name. Bobby sent the letter to eleven-year-old Joe, but the message was meant for all his sons and nephews.

Sons of Camelot is the compelling story of that message and how it shaped each Kennedy son and grandson in the aftermath of President John F. Kennedy's death. Based on five years of rigorous research and unprecedented cooperation from both the Kennedys and the Shrivers, Sons of Camelot examines the lives characterized by overwhelming drama -- from the most spectacular mishaps, excesses, and tragediesto the remarkable accomplishments that have led to better lives for Americans and others around the world.

The third volume in Laurence Leamer's bestselling history of America's first family, Sons of Camelot chronicles the spellbinding journey of a message sent from a father to his son ... from a president to his people.

Celebrated historian, researcher, and writer Laurence Leamer is the author of ten books, including the New York Times bestseller The Kennedy Women. He has written for Harper’s, Playboy, People, New York, The Washingtonian, the New York Times Magazine, and other publications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sons of Camelot I love the way this book was written. It was written with integrity, resonate truthfulness, back by reliable witness many being of the Kennedy family. It did not put the family on a pedestal and neither did they drag them through garbage and that in itself is refreshing. Thank you for finally writing a book about this exceptional family and portraying them as human being with great qualities and flaws like all of us. Thank you

Editorial Reviews

“Leamer has wisely loaded [SONS OF CAMELOT] with more than enough scandal to satisfy audience expectations.”
