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.

A different perspective on JFK Jr's life

What did you love best about JFK Jr., George & Me?

The author told the story from his perspective as creative director for George Magazine. He talked about what he knew best--how the covers were chosen, designed, and shot. It was a fascinating way to weave in what he knew about JFK Jr (and his wife Carolyn).

Who was your favorite character and why?

The author--after I read the book I went back to follow up on how his career has unfolded after he left George.
