Ted Sorensen's classic biography of John F Kennedy, which I've read and really enjoyed, is on sale at Kindle US for $2.99. For me, this biography really helped fill some of the holes in my formal history education, since my rather dated high-school World History textbook stopped just after the Korean conflict (betraying my age), but I wasn't really old enough to remember stuff myself until the Vietnam war. And also I'm in awe/love with the last few paragraphs of JFK's inaugural address...

Quote:
In January 1953, freshman senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts hired a twenty-four-year-old from Nebraska as his Number Two legislative assistant—on a trial basis. Despite the differences in their backgrounds, in the eleven years that followed Ted Sorensen became known as Kennedy's intellectual blood bank, top policy aide, and alter ego.

Sorensen knew Kennedy the man, the senator, the candidate, and the president as no other associate did. From his role as a legislative assistant to Kennedy's death in 1963, Sorensen was with him during the key crises and turning points—including the spectacular race for the vice presidency at the 1956 convention, the launching of Kennedy's presidential candidacy, the TV debates with Nixon, and election night at Hyannis Port. The first appointment made by the new president was to name Ted Sorensen his Special Counsel.

In Kennedy, Sorensen recounts failures as well as successes with surprising candor and objectivity. He reveals Kennedy's errors on the Bay of Pigs, and his attitudes toward the press, Congress, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Sorensen saw firsthand Kennedy's actions in the Cuban missile crisis, and the evolution of his beliefs on civil rights and arms control. First published in 1965 and reissued here with a new preface, Kennedy is an intimate biography of an extraordinary man, and one of the most important historical accounts of the twentieth century.

“In all the millions of words which have been written about the martyred President, this book must remain unique.” —*Los Angeles Times

So changing the cover wasn't enough for them so they changed the title as well.

This month's free University of Chicago Press ebook is Cycling Science: How Rider and Machine Work Together by Max Glaskin.

“For Cycling Science: How Rider and Machine Work Together British cyclist and journalist Max Glaskin mined hundreds of scientific studies and academic papers for findings that he explains in accessible language. The book is organized around a series of questions and answers framed to educate professional and recreational riders as well as the scientifically curious. The questions range from the practical (What is the most efficient bike design?) to the speculative (Why might plasma be the future of bike materials?). Each answer is accompanied by a terrific set of infographics.”— Boston Globe

Joffe's Free Friday books for today, June 7, 2024, are usually available through the weekend, but occasionally not.* *So if you want any or all of these, best to grab them now.

First Blitz is an account of a secret German plan to raze London in 1918, based, per its blurb, on first-hand witnesses and government war records.

Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZVX6FH7
Kindle UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07ZVX6FH7

And the other two books are a mystery and an historical saga, posted in the appropriate threads.

Far from the killing fields of France, a little-known battle was fought in the skies over London that nearly altered the course of the First World War and with it, the history of humanity itself. The margin between survival and total destruction came down to less than one hour.

In four years, the Luftwaffe’s England squadron had moved from crude canvas-and-wire light aircraft to the four-engined giants as big as anything that flew in the Second World War. This, combined with the development of a revolutionary incendiary bomb, gave Germany the chance to raze London to the ground. It was a chance that they came within an inch of taking…
