1. unmistakable JFK stamp - its style of writing had characteristics of the style of writing JFK used in books which he wrote 2. which could be discerned in Kennedy's first book - which gould be seen in the first book which Kennedy (JFK) wrote. In the book co-authored by Ted Sorenson and Ted Kennedy, you could find similarities between the writing style in their book and the first book that John F. Kennedy wrote (which was written long before Ted Sorenson met Ted Kennedy).
