If George magazine was about “not just politics as usual,” a
day at the office with John F. Kennedy Jr. was not just
business as usual. John handpicked Creative Director Matt
Berman to bring his vision for a new political magazine to
life. Through marathon nights leading up to George’s launch;
extraordinary meetings with celebrities including Barbra
Streisand, Robert De Niro, and Demi Moore; and jokes at each
other’s expense, Matt developed a wonderfully collaborative
and fun-loving relationship with America’s favorite son.
They were an unlikely team: the poised, charismatic scion of
a beloved political family and the shy, self-deprecating,
artistic kid. Yet they became close friends and confidants.
In this warm, funny, and intimate book, Matt remembers his
brilliant friend and colleague—John’s approach to work,
life, and fame, and most of all, his ease and grace, which
charmed those around him.
More than any book before it, JFK Jr., George, & Me reveals
the friendly, witty, down-to-earth guy the paparazzi could
never capture. Matt opens the doors of John’s messy office
to share previously untold stories, personal notes, and
never-before-seen photos from the trenches of a startup
magazine that was the brainchild of a superstar. John helped
Matt navigate a world filled with celebrities, artists,
beauty, style, competition, and stunningly tender egos. In
turn, Matt shares the invaluable lessons about business and
life that he learned from John. What emerges is a portrait
of JFK Jr. as a true friend and mentor.
