John F. Kennedy doesn’t come from a long line of wealthy ancestors. His grandfathers on both sides were the first to make it big after their fathers came to American from Ireland. As only the second generation to grow up with wealth and entitlement, he and his brothers and sisters were raised with nursemaid. One passage in the book mentions how, after a boat ride, the kids all took their clothes off on the way back to the house knowing someone else would pick them up. Jack never grew out of this habit. Even in boarding school and college, his room was a mess, he would lose things and he was always running late.
