William Cohan writes about four friends he knew at Andover—one of the oldest and most prestigious high schools in the United States. He profiles Jack Berman, Will Daniel, Harry Bull, and John F. Kennedy, Jr.—golden boys who all died at a young age. Cohan begins the story with an overview of the Revolutionary War era history of the school, day-to-day rigor of the curricula, and the elevated of the students’ families.

This question came to mind as I finished reading: Does being raised as privileged child encourage expectations of entitlement and a feeling of invincibility? How can people with so much to live for act so carelessly with their lives. In three of the cases, this carelessness led to their untimely and unnecessary deaths.
