it was amazing

It is the story of a man’s loyalty to a president who must resign due to his cover up of his overzealous staff. It is a fascinating tale that starts with G. Gordon Liddy’s childhood. He was afraid of everything. He went to bed praying until he fell asleep because he feared what would happen if he did not pray enough. He decides that this is a way that he does not want to live. So he decides to conquer all his fears by facing them. For example, he was afraid of heights and lightening so during a storm he climbs a tree and braves the storm.
He is sent to prison for his involvement in the break-in of the Watergate Hotel. He describes how he did not let the prison break him into a confession. He tells of how they would not let you know the time of day in prison and how this causes a disorientation that breaks a prisoner down. He finds a solution to this by watching the ants in his cell. He figures out that they came out at the same time every day. He counted the days. He uses jail to his advantage. He helps fellow prisoners with problems they had with the law. He also was taught some form of karate by one of his fellow prisoners.
He gets out of prison and never looks back. He played in movies, television shows and moved into talk radio where he has a very informative radio show.
