Footage from September 1963. Walter Cronkite and Kennedy sitting on the front lawn of a home Kennedy rented on nearby Squaw island.

Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy's voice has been absent from the numerous books written about her, John F. Kennedy's presidency, and their life together. Now, in seven never-before-heard interviews conducted in 1964 with Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., this extraordinary woman gives us her story in her own words. This historic document and these tapes have been sealed for half a century, now available to be heard and read for the first time in this deluxe book and 8-cd set. Also a Diane Sawyer exclusive special on ABC News.

To change the world... you must first challenge yourself. Are YOU up for the challenge? "People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you're doing, and it's totally true. And the reason is because it's so hard, that if you don't, any rational person would give up. It's really hard. You have to do it over a sustained period of time. So if you don't love it. You don't have fun doing it, you don't really love it, you're going to give up. Often times the ones who are successful loved what they did so they could persevere when it got really tough. And the ones who didn't love it, quit. Because they are sane. Right? Who would want to put up with this stuff if you don't love it. So, it's a lot of hard work..." - Steve Jobs ------------------ "The greater our knowledge increase, the greater our ignorance unfolds..." - John F Kennedy ------------------ "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." - Neil Armstrong ------------------ "I have a dream, this nation will rise up..." - Martin Luther King, Jr. ------------------ "I'm just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream." - Hilary Swank at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival
