LIFE The Day Kennedy Died: Fifty Years Later: LIFE Remembers the Man and the Moment
LIFE The Day Kennedy Died: Fifty Years Later: LIFE Remembers the Man and the Moment by The Editors of LIFE
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A very good reminder of what it was like 50 years ago. Not just a book, but a full reprint of the November 29, 1963 edition of LIFE magazine, complete with the other articles and ads, giving a great snapshot of what it was like to be alive back in those days.

The book is a compilation of stories and pictures from that time, including the “Zapruder film” (and some of the missing frames), articles about Oswald and Ruby, and lots of reminiscences from people who recall where they were and what they were thinking when they first heard the words “The President has been shot!”
