Product Description


“One of the best narrative treatments of the four days from assassination to funeral.” — Wall Street Journal

“What Bugliosi has done is a public service... the literary equivalent of World War I, a kind of trench warfare for the mind.” — New York Times Book Review

“At last, someone has done it, put all the pieces together.... With this work, Bugliosi has definitively explained the murder that recalibrated modern America.” — Los Angeles Times Book Review

“By far the most accurate and detailed nongovernmental account [of] the assassination.” — Richard Mosk, member of the Warren Commission (Los Angeles Daily Law Journal)

“There is no question that Bugliosi succeeds in scorching the conspiracy theory terrain with ferocious, even definitive, plausibility.” — The Atlantic

“Few books are as gripping in their narrative, or as telling in their fine detail. This is a book that will make you weep.” — Philadelphia Inquirer

“What Bugliosi has done is reframe the narrative in such a compelling manner, in such an original writing voice, that he essentially shuts the conspiracy theorists down cold.” — The Oregonian

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By L. C. Wiser on Feb. 20 2010
Format: Paperback
It's true: Those of us alive at the time will "never forget" exactly where we were when the tragic news was given us, President John F. Kennedy "was shot at, and was killed, this day in Dallas." On that day a "wound" was inflicted, upon each of us, that, with time, has not healed, but has only "festered," and grown worse. WHAT, exactly, happened, on that fateful day in Dallas? With sober thought, let the healing begin. Vincent Bugliosi is rapidly emerging as one of America's finest historical writers. In this work, Bugliosi takes us through the events of Friday (Nov. 22), beginning at 6:00 a.m., with the President awakening in Fort Worth, to the burial in Arlington Cemetary on Monday. This is a minute-by-minute, investigation of events -- not just in Dallas -- but throughout America during those four days. To reconcile a "wound" of this magnitude, we, "the wounded," need to know every single event of those four dark days. Bugliosi delivers with an expertise that leaves the reader speechless. And so now, inspite of all the disinformation and just plain misunderstanding surrounding this event, the reader, finally, can rest. WE KNOW NOW, finally, what happened during that awful weekend in America. The "wound" is healed, but the "scar" remains. It always will.

All four books arrived in one box, which made me very happy as it was left at my door. No need to have to pick them up.

No Photo Section in Kindle Edition? June 22 2010
By Beth - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Enjoyed the book very much, especially pleased with Mr. Bugliosi's writing style. I was a little surprised, though, to find that the entire photo section was omitted from my Kindle edition. It was a little frustrating to read a book that contains many references to photos and diagrams in a section that wasn't there. I called customer service and was told that perhaps the publisher wanted the photo section left out. He apologized and refunded my money.

Exceeded My Expectations Jan. 26 2013
By GKCooper - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a "Baby-Boomer" I was just old enough to comprehend the consequences of JFK's assassination in 1963. Since then, I've read more than a few books on the subject and Mr. Bugliosi's effort rates as one of the best, along with Bill O'Reilly's "Killing Kennedy: The End Of Camelot." Although "Killing Kennedy" deals exquisitely with historical and biographical information on the people involved, Mr. Bugliosi gives you an extraordinary timeline of events as well as behind the scenes of the Dallas Police Department and its interrogations of Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby. You can draw your own conclusions on how much the Federal Bureau of Investigation helped/hindered a case in which it had no jurisdiction.

A good narrative of what probably happened but..... April 16 2014
By Greg G - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
But there are just too many questions that Bugliosi leaves hanging out there, never to be addressed. I am a big fan of V. Bugliosi's work so needless to say I was very disappointed when this didn't turn out to be the end all be all of books about the subject. There are so many suspect circumstances surrounding this assination, no wonder there is a truck load of conspiracy theories floating around. But Vince does not address them, just merely states these events as fact.

Bugliosi does it again. Not only is he a gifted writer, he artfully incorporates impeccable attention to sourcing, as any good attorney has been trained to do. This book has special meaning for me personally, as the late Officer Tippit was my great uncle by marriage. Although my family members have shared with me some details over the years, such as the poignant telegram Mrs. Kennedy immediately sent to Mrs. Tippit following the murders, and the magnitude of the funeral itself, with its enormous turnout, Bugliosi shares many details I never learned from my private and pained family. I appreciate that. The Dallas PD saluted my uncle's sacrifice this past November by wearing black remembrance ribbons, and for their actions I for one am truly grateful. I also felt honored to be able to teach my daughter that while President Kennedy died much too soon, surely he finds solace as he looks down from above that the Congress in its grief unified to pass the Civil rights act of 1964, forever improving our great land.

"Some day you'll hang your heads in shame...My son [may be] the unsung hero of this episode."--Marguerite, Oswald's mother June 9 2008
By Mary Whipple - Published on
Format: Paperback
When Vincent Bugliosi wrote Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, published in May, 2007, the predecessor of the book being reviewed here, it was widely regarded as his magnum opus, a towering masterpiece which took twenty years and 1648 pages to write. In this new edition about the assassination, drawn from Reclaiming History, Bugliosi has now winnowed the original manuscript to approximately 500 pages, concentrating on the facts of the assassination and eliminating nearly all the material used by the conspiracy theorists because he has essentially disproved the conspiracy idea.

Four Days in November reconstructs the assassination, giving dates and times, sometimes second by second, to make these real events come to life, and he includes seventy-nine photographs and drawings. The resulting achievement is stunning, an intensely readable and compelling work of scholarship which should eliminate, once and for all, the idea that there was more than one gunman. Photographs of the shooting, broken down into tiny fractions of a second, anatomical drawings of the wounds of President Kennedy and Governor Connolly, fingerprint evidence in the "sniper's nest" at the Book Depository, extensive photographs of the grassy knoll at the time of the shooting, and accounts from many eye-witnesses provide weighty, seemingly incontrovertible, evidence that Oswald was the lone shooter.

Bugliosi, who prosecuted Charles Manson in the Tate-LaBianca trial and then went on to write Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders about that trial, is an accomplished writer who shares with the reader the kinds of details that he, as a prosecutor, counts as compelling evidence. At the same time, he is a painstaking recreator of scenes and observer of human nature. His intuitive sense of how people behave gives him an understanding of their psychology and, at times, motivations, all of which humanize this account of seemingly inhuman actions. Focusing on Lee Harvey Oswald and his dysfunctional family, the Dallas police and press, Jack Ruby and the underworld which he represents in Dallas, and the Kennedy family as it comes to grips not only with the loss of the President but with the loss of a loved one, Bugliosi provides an intimate and unforgettable look at a national tragedy which, in his hands, is also transformed into a moving series of personal tragedies.

Readers who begin this book will be as compelled to keep reading, as details unfold, as were all of us who lived through these events during that terrible long weekend in November, 1963, when we remained glued to our TV sets around the clock, and the entire country shut down. Bugliosi's total dedication to providing every relevant detail, his ability to convey the atmosphere and the understandable confusion following the shooting, his sensitivity to the feelings of the innocent people and families who were permanently scarred by these events, and his honesty in recreating events without trying to make the facts "fit" an agenda, make this book a milestone of historical research, endowing these terrible events with the respect--and finality--they deserve. n Mary Whipple
