We rated this book:


The relationships forged in life develop at various stages throughout. Many of the strongest develop at school. Four Friends views four schoolmates united by the bonds of attending Andover Prep School and their premature and tragic deaths. The daunting prospect of attending the elite school impacted all four personalities. Their unique backgrounds differentiated them. Jack was the second son of hardworking European immigrants. They witnessed Jack’s brilliance and desired the best for his future. Jack was intense in his studies and his success propelled him into the world of law. Will’s life was overshadowed from birth, born the Grandson of Harry Truman. Will shunned privilege and creature comforts, he desired to buck the system. Will wished to make a difference, but anonymously. Harry hailed from Chicago and a prominent pedigree, the world was his. Despite the burdens of ambition, he persevered and was destined to lead the family business. John Jr. bore the hopes of the world, as the only son of the murdered President. Every step and misstep followed by the media. Their ends varied, but their paths vastly different.

Four Friends takes four tragedies and unveils the triumphs and tribulations of these people. William Cohan writes a book composed of four deep and beautiful biographies. The protagonists elicit every emotion as the reader shares their travel in life. Four Friends illustrates how what one does while on earth should resonate more than our inevitable end. Captivating read.
