Publisher's Summary

As John Kennedy Jr.'s creative director for George magazine, Matt Berman had a wonderfully collaborative and fun-loving relationship with America's favorite son - his story is told here with unprecedented candor and wit.
The Kennedys - their poise, the family secrets, and their grace in the face of unimaginable tragedies - have captured the imagination and interest of the public for more than fifty years. Now colleague and friend of JFK Jr. Matt Berman offers us a unique look at John's life as both a professional and "regular guy."
When talented creative executive Matt Berman took a meeting with John Kennedy Jr. in 1995, he was immediately hired to serve as George's creative director, thus beginning an unforgettable journey, both personal and professional. We follow Matt through his first days at the magazine as he navigated the choppy waters of what would be the most-talked-about magazine launch in history, helmed by a supremely confident and charming John. Wry and instantly likable, Matt shares not only his own personal story of his relationship with John but also valuable life and work lessons that he learned while working alongside him behind the scenes at George. But most importantly, through Matt's recollections, we see a John Kennedy that the public never got to know. Matt paints a vivid portrait of JFK Jr. that only a select few have ever seen, offering a touching and honest tribute to John's legacy.

Interesting look at the businessman

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely. It touches on a more human side of JFK, Jr. that some may have forgotten while remembering the icon.

What was one of the most memorable moments of JFK Jr., George & Me?

The visit to Barbara Streisand's house.

Which scene was your favorite?

Presenting George Washington's sword like it's no big deal.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

He knew everybody but he was just John.

Any additional comments?

You also get some insight on his wife. The press had her all wrong. Not an ice queen. Mistakes were made, but they all worked hard on George. John wasn't perfect but this book told me he was everything I thought he'd be; and the good outweighed the bad tenfold.

A great companion to "Fairy Tale Interrupted".

A great telling of the tragically short life of John F. Kennedy Jr.

As a fan of JFK Jr. and his magazine, George, this is a great companion piece to Rosemarie Terenzio's "Fairy Tale Interrupted".
