Profiles in Courage

Reception

After its release on January 1, 1956, Profiles in Courage became a best seller. Although the book was not nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, Kennedy's father Joseph asked columnist Arthur Krock, his political adviser and a longtime member of the prize board, to persuade others to vote for it. Profiles in Courage won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography in 1957.[3]

Profiles in Courage was made into a television series of the same name that aired on the NBC network during the 1964–1965 television season.
