I read this shortly after JFK died. I attended high school in Arlington, Virginia during his presidency, and stood a few hundred yards from his grave site (along with thousands of others) when he was buried.Profiles introduced me to the idea that people, even those in power, make choices.

And their choices matter.I didnt know then that it was ghost-written for him by one of his speech writers, but I was immediately aware that the book was written from an angle, even though I didnt know what that angle was. It was my introduction to the intellectual basis of partisan politics. Prior to reading Profiles all my experience with politics had been names, labels and slogans.So, in a manner of speaking, Profiles in Courage was a coming of age book for me. While others of my generation got sweating palms over Catcher in the Rye, my spirit was pulled by Profiles and, believe it or not, Lord of the Rings.

Think about it, both describe making choices and those choices mattering.
