This book does not reveal no secret or sensation. One there talks about Mr. Monroe, of J'S. F. Kennedy without that one learns a lot on these two monsters of the movie and of the political American one. It is a matter only of the description of a man remained more or less in the shadow: a manipulative that, in silence pulls the strings.
