Summary
The New York Times bestselling author of Ike's Bluff and Sea of Thunder brings new life to one of American history's most infamous, paradoxical, and enigmatic politicians: Richard Nixon. Dispensing with the myths to achieve an intimate and evenhanded look at the man himself, Evan Thomas delivers the best single-volume biography of Nixon to date, a radically different portrait of a complicated figure who was both determinedly optimistic and tragically flawed
