Just finished this up...I have to say that going in, I thought I knew enough about Nixon (in general) and the politics in the 20th century (in particular) that little would shock me.
So, it was kind of a nice surprise (I guess) to find that I wasn't quite as jaded as I thought I was.
Anyway, RV pretty much sums up the subject better than I could:
god damn was he a venal, paranoid, rotten motherfucker.
I was kind of disappointed that it ended after the '72 McGoverning. Does anybody have any recommended reading on Watergate?
