Harper Collins, 26.04.2011. - 224 страница
From one of the world’s most celebrated and admired public figures, a wise and intimate book on how to get the most of out life.

Kennedy’s Profiles in Courage, the First Lady’s illuminating manual of personal exploration resonates with the timeless power to change lives.
