Mr. Reeves talked about his book, President Kennedy: Profile of Power published by Simon and Schuster. The book is meant to illustrate President Kennedy’s own view of his three years in office, through research of the Oval Office and Cabinet Room tapes and interviews with such Kennedy advisers as Pierre Salinger. Mr. Reeves felt he gained insights into Kennedy decisions which were not fully understood at the time, such as increasing U.S. troop strength in Vietnam. The book title derives from President Kennedy’s book, Profiles in Courage. close
