All This Marvelous Potential
By Matthew Algeo

In All This Marvelous Potential, Algeo retraces Senator Robert F. Kennedy’s 1968 trip into the heart of eastern Kentucky to gauge the success of President Johnson’s War on Poverty. The book  provides an interesting new look at the life of Robert Kennedy, and highlights some of the shortcomings such as divisive politics and racial strife that still exist in America today. Our reader recommended this title, and said that the short chapter lengths made it easy to digest.
