I love this book. It gives real detail about the elections that he ran in.

What do you all think of this book? What are some of your favorite sections? What did you learn that you did not know before?

But did you get your version of Nixon's Memoirs for just $4 like I did? Smiley

Whilst it is not one of the best political memoirs I have read, it was interesting to say the least. Shame he didn't mention anything about his involvement with Watergate, now that would have made the Memoirs moreso interesting! To top it all off, it would have been funny had he shifted the blame of the Watergate scandal to  his enemies like Jane Fonda. Hehe.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.
