Book Review: “Bad Blood: Lyndon B. Johnson, Robert F. Kennedy, And The Tumultuous 1960s” By Jeffrey K. Smith (2010, 332 Pages)
“Bad Blood” is a bad book.
Jeffrey K. Smith is a physician and writer.
“Bad Blood” recounts the personal and political feud between Robert F. Kennedy (my hero) and Lyndon B. Johnson.
This book is at best a lousy executive summary of the historical period it covers. It is rich in anecdotes and very poor in analysis.
It is a digestible tabloid version of one of the most complex periods of modern American history. It is greatly insufficient.
