I followed Watergate as high schooler, staying home to watch the first broadcast of the Watergate hearings in April or May 1973. Over the weeks that followed this guy showed up as one of the worst of the legion of hateful SOB's who made up the Nixon WH staff. He got imprisoned eventually and this was one of the first Watergate books to come out. He almost sounds liberal in this book, imbued with humility and improved moral clarity and a readiness to work for prison reform. I though he had stayed a changed man, but I guess not, from hearing snippets of what he does today. If he didn't write this himself it was still an easy and interesting story, and that he was apparently humbled by what he went through after his crimes sat well, I recalled.

Darlene If somtime in the 70's is when you last read this book then might I suggest you read it again? This was/is a changed man and the change has been permanent. I don't know what "snippets" you have heard about what he is up to these days but anything I ever hear about him is consistent with the faith he found in this story. He is, to me, a modern day pillar in Christianity.
