Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: A Life - Donald Spoto - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis - A Life:

Poise during a public tragedy.

My favorite Jackie Kennedy Onassis quote from the book:

"One must not let oneself be overwhelmed with sadness."

Questions I pondered while reading Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis:

Why do we require public figures to share so much of their life?

How does one develop that type of poise?

My thoughts about Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis:

Jackie is the queen of "Keep Calm and Carry On."

Lots of information.

Lots of heartbreak.
