And then everything changed book
THEN EVERYTHING CHANGED by Jeff Greenfield | Kirkus ReviewsReviewed by Charles Lane. It posits that if you could visit the past, your presence there could alter the course of events, however slightly, with ever-widening ripple effects through time, such that you would return to a barely recognizable present. Kennedy in December had succeeded; or if Robert F. Ford had not blunderingly denied Soviet domination of Eastern Europe in his presidential debate with Democrat Jimmy Carter. In the first scenario, Greenfield invites us to contemplate the death of President-elect John Kennedy before his apparent victory over Richard Nixon had actually been affirmed by the Electoral College. He leads us through the high-pressure negotiations among the Republican and Democratic power-brokers of the day, who, lacking clear constitutional instructions on how to proceed, arrange for the House of Representatives to pick then-Vice President-elect Lyndon B.

Refresh and try again. Greenfield knows his stuff. History changes when Gerald Ford corrected himself after misspeaking during a presidential debate against Jimmy Carter. Jeff Greenfield has taken it and turned it into something bokk entirely - a trio of thought-provoking, and downright clever scenarios which remind us just how much individuals do matter.
