Richard Nixon fascinates me, because on the one hand, he seems kind of like he was a sonovabitch, but on the other hand, Im not sure if the President doesnt need to be a bit of a sonovabitch. But maybe Nixon was a bit too much of a sonovabitch? This book does a good job of showing how complicated Nixons character was. A lot of his friends and allies ended up hating him, but a lot of the people who were initially out to skewer him end up respecting him a great deal.Nixons great analytical mind and huge personal failings are both on display in this book, which is very tightly focused on his first ten years out of office.

Because of how narrow the focus is, however, I cant say that its the first book Id recommend for someone who is interested in Nixon, because there are other books that give a broader picture of his life and there are other books that do more deep thinking about the ethics of Nixons presidency. Its not quite as compelling a read as Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 72, which to my mind is the best Nixon book, but its certainly less biased and a worthwhile read for someone who already knows the broadstrokes and wants to get a deeper understanding of who Nixon was.
