President John F. Kennedy's back problems have been the subject of much speculation, but the true story was never reported — until now. Susan Schaller of Wilton, who writes as Susan E.B. Schwartz, has written a book revealing the untold story and its many layers in her new book, JFK's Secret Doctor, (Skyhorse Publishing, 2012).
Ms. Schaller, who will give a talk at the Wilton Library on Monday, Dec. 10, from 6 to 7 p.m., said her book focuses on Dr. Hans Kraus, a "medical visionary and rock-climbing legend." He was President Kennedy's back specialist, and actually declared him cured after two years of treatment.
