    Another good book by Anderson This book describes many sides of Jackie Kennedy that the world had never seen What I liked best about this book is the fact that it gave such a refreshing look at someone who is so easily idealized Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was human possessed all the failings of a human being We know her devotion to her children and what a successful mother she was But new revelations about her suicidal depression after Dallas the affairs with Marlon Brando and Warren Another good book by Anderson This book describes many sides of Jackie Kennedy tha...
