At times surprisingly candid autobiography. Assessment of his relationship with 10 US presidents is insightful and revealing. ( )

A very sweet book! Ted talks about growing up a Kennedy, the baby brother or Jack and Bobby. He suffered a lot of loss in his life but still kept his optimism and belief his country. He loved his parents- his mother especially. This book covers his whole life; with the theme of always loving to sail on the Atlantic near his family home. An easy read and very heart warming book.

Excellent
his parents took him to many historic places

The youngest of nine children born to Joseph P. Kennedy and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, he came of age among siblings from whom much was expected. As a young man, he played a key role in the presidential campaign of his brother John F. Kennedy, recounted here in loving detail. In 1962 he was elected to the U.S. Senate, where he began a fascinating political education and became a legislator.

The memoir of Edward "Ted" Kennedy, released posthumously just after the third longest serving member of the senate passed away in the summer of 2009, it provides a personal look at Kennedy's relations with his family, his role in the senate, relations with other members of congress, and how he came to grips with the tragedies which befell four siblings and three nephews.

An engaging telling of Kennedy's storied life.
 
An enjoyable read.
 
The late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy has produced a revelatory — though not tabloidesque — account of his storied life and career... Since people will no longer have the chance to sit with Mr. Kennedy on the porch of his home in his beloved Hyannisport overlooking the ocean as he sips hot tea and tells yarns, reading "True Compass" is the next best thing.
 
Touchingly candid, big-hearted and altogether superb... Completed in the shadow of the senator's own mortality, this is a book whose clarity of recollection and expression entitles it to share in the lineage established by America's first great memoir of public life -- "The Autobiography of U.S. Grant," which he wrote while himself dying of cancer.
afegit per Shortride | editaLos Angeles Times, Tim Rutten (Sep 16, 2009)
 
If the writing about his marriage and Chappaquiddick in True Compass does not exactly seem introspective, neither does it ring false, and the rest of his life story — filled with colorful tales of his siblings and inside-the-Beltway detail — makes for a thoughtful, intermittently gut-wrenching read.

It was on the sunny spring day of Tuesday, May 20, 2008, that I emerged from a medicated drowsiness in a Boston hospital bed and looked up into the face of a doctor who explained to me in a somber way that I was about to die, and that I had best begin getting my affairs in order and preparing my friends and family for the end.
