A small team of dedicated friends and the team at Wm. Morrow/Harper Collins painstakingly proofed this book, but I made errors that slipped through the process. So, with apologies, here are the ones I caught after the book went through printing. If you find others, please email me at

  • On the 13th page of the photo insert, the caption incorrectly identifies the location as the University of Kansas; the picture is from Kansas State University.  RFK spoke at both locations on March 18; KSU was the second of the two.
  • On page 271, fourth paragraph, the phrase in the speech as delivered was "the life of ease", rather than "the love of ease".
