    I found this book on my grandmother s book shelf when we were cleaning out her house after she died I brought it home, along with several others, as they looked interesting Now, with the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of John F Kennedy almost here, I decided to read this, as Kennedy was killed before I was born Being a 50 year old book, the old book musty smell my copy had instantly made this seem historical The book was published in almost immediately after the assassination, and co I found this book on my grandmother s book shelf when we were cleaning out her house after she died I brought it home, along with several others, as they looked interesting Now, with the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of John F Kennedy almost here, I decided to read this, as Kennedy was killed before I was born Being a 50 year old book, the old book musty smell my copy had instantly made this seem historical The book was published in almost immediately after the assassination, and contains historical photos of the day in Dallas, the arrest and killing of Lee Harvey Oswald, and the funeral of the President The text of the book is UPI news articles published at that time, as well as copies of speeches and eulogies given The grief of Mrs Kennedy is palpable Seeing her covered in her dead husband s blood, while the Vice President is sworn into the Presidency is heart breaking Then her stoicism throughout the following days, visiting her husband s casket while it was on display, and walking in the funeral procession, makes me realize what a strong, amazing woman she was.This book is just a historical record There are no conspiracy theories here There is no mud slinging, or politics This is just a document of four days of a nation s grief And it is a worthwhile read

    I was 11 years old and my neighbor had this book and a book by Whitehouse photographer Mark Shaw during the Kennedy administration This book floored me I don t even remember if I knew anything about the Kennedy assassination before this The pictures of President Kennedy and Jackie were amazing The pictures of the assassination were chilling Jackie on Air Force One, The funeral, all amazing.After reading this book and many others I believed all the conspiracy theories In recent years, I hav I was 11 years old and my neighbor had this book and a book by Whitehouse photographer Mark Shaw during the Kennedy administration This book floored me I don t even remember if I knew anything about the Kennedy assassination before this The pictures of President Kennedy and Jackie were amazing The pictures of the assassination were chilling Jackie on Air Force One, The funeral, all amazing.After reading this book and many others I believed all the conspiracy theories In recent years, I have changed that position and think that it was Oswald and Oswald alone, although I do find some of the points brought out by conspiracy theorists to be very interesting

    My grandma gave me a first edition of this amazing account of the four days surrounding the Kennedy Assassination when I was 8 years old, and fascinated with U.S History I ve misplaced it over the years, however I just ordered another First Edition, and am anxiously awaiting its arrival I hope that it has that musty, old book smell just as the one I had when I was younger did Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in U.S History.

    I was very fortunate to acquire this commemorative and rare item at a Dealey Plaza U.K book auction for the ridiculous sum of just 10 Four Days was published in 1964 as a historical record of the death of President Kennedy by United Press International and American Heritage Magazine.I can happily ignore some of the factual errors in the text and treasure this hard backed memento, that is in great condition, to add to my JFK collection.

    my assistant principal brought this in for a display i did on the 50th anniversary of the assassination what is remarkable about this book is that it came out a year after the event and it has some amazing photos, a list of all the dignitaries from around the world who were at the ceremony, some of the notes and thoughts from around the world and some of the addresses that were given an immediate spotlight on the whole affair not something written years and years later.

    One of the guys in my Public Speaking class because his wife wanted to get rid of most of his Kennedy books I found out this book is a treasure when I looked at the date it was published It s a little worn, but I ll take good care of it To have something like this is a rare treat Even though I wasn t born until 96, the Kennedys still intrigue me.

    My father was a journalist, too, and obtained this book through his newspaper, so it was in our home for several years before I was even born Before I could even read, I d look at the pictures No wonder I became fascinated with Kennedy s assassination.
