I read this book while I am writing a ten page paper of Richard Nixon. I learned a lot about Richard Nixon, his accomplishments and his criticism. I also learned that if you did something wrong, no matter how many accomplishments you achieve over your life time, the thing that you did wrong will follow you til the day you die.

Helpful. Interesting.
Smart, strange man who overcomes dislike of people to run incredibly large country of people. More effective on Vietnam than given credit for. Problem with honesty.

It's not easy to find a balanced biography of Richard Nixon, but this one fits the bill. It is a little dry and drags some points out too long, but overall a decent book

It's quite interesting book about one conservative president.
But actually there are a lot of information and events around Nixon, but not of him. I think, it's too much.

He was a scary man to have running our country!
