Profiles in Courage - John F. Kennedy - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of Profiles in Courage:

Integrity in politics.

My favorite John F. Kennedy quote from the book:

"...there are few, if any, issues where all the truth and all the right and all the angels are on one side."

Questions to ponder while reading Profiles in Courage:

Do you know where you stand?

Do your choices matter?

My thoughts about Profiles in Courage:

An honest look at honest politicians - even if it was ghostwritten.

An important read for US History.

Many relevant takeaways for today's politics.
