"John A. Farrell has once again delivered a rich, precisely written portrait of the past to help us understand the present. He traces the origins and turning points of one of the most complex, complicated and fascinating presidents of the modern age with flair and narrative skill. Each page is a joy to read," writes John Dickerson, moderator of CBS's Face the Nation and author of Whistlestop: My Favorite Stories from Presidential Campaign History.
"Richard Nixon's political career has all the nooks and crannies of an English muffin: the red-baiting of the early campaigns; Checkers; the Great Debates of 1960; the comeback in '68; the inheritance and horror of Vietnam; the historic opening to China; the shame of Watergate," says Chris Matthews, the host of Hardball, and author of Kennedy & Nixon: The Rivalry that Shaped Post-war America. "In Richard Nixon, John A. Farrell is tough and unyielding, yet gives his subject a fair hearing through each gripping episode. `I'm not a quitter,' Nixon once protested, and this grand, indispensable book proves him right, right to the end."
