Fascinated by the Kennedys? Then Chris Matthews, the anchor of MSNBC’s Hardball, is your man. He's written several books about JFK, and now, with Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit (Simon & Schuster, $29), he takes on RFK. Here Matthews shares three books on past and present topics dear to his heart.
Unbelievable (Dey Street Books), $27 “My NBC colleague Katy Tur describes in witty, up-close-and-personal detail what it was like covering presidential candidate Donald Trump from long shot to victor.”
Grant (Random House), $40 “Ron Chernow, who authored Alexander Hamilton, the biography that became the hit Broadway musical, has brought to life an even greater American: Ulysses S. Grant.”
Leonardo da Vinci (Simon & Schuster), $35 “Through six centuries, the artist’s paintings—the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper—remain our most popular. Walter Isaacson, today’s author of genius, shows us Leonardo’s notebooks and the potential of our own curiosity.”
