An excellent account of the theft of "The Pentagon Papers" by the fellow who stole them. Ellsberg narrates his journey from Washington analyst to Vietnam and back, as well as his famous 'leak' of top-secret documents to sabatoge the US war effort in Vietnam. Although his leak helped sway public opinion against the war, it was Nixon's psychotic overreaction to the leak that brought his Presidency crashing down in ruins. Well worth the read.
