Although this book utterly fails in its attempt to make Nixon a sympathetic figure,
it is valuable for the revelations it includes about the crimes and cover-ups of
other presidents from FDR to LBJ (except Republican Eisenhower). It also points out
the glaring hypocrisy of the press and others who express shock and outrage at
Nixon's crimes, but helped cover up the same or worse crimes of Democrats.
