This is a collection of all Schell's Watergate/Nixon-era pieces from The New Yorker. Schell, who was a classmate of Wallace Shawn's, wrote for famous New Yorker editor William Shawn (father of Wallace). I'm a bit of a Watergate freak and this is one of those books that I just pick up from time to time and read in chunks.

Had to read this for a class in college about the presidency. I still own the book. Don't remember all that much about it, but that it was good. A different coverage of the Nixon years.
