Описание

Bob Woodward exposes one of the final pieces of the Richard Nixon puzzle in his new book The Last of the President's Men. Woodward reveals the untold story of Alexander Butterfield, the Nixon aide who disclosed the secret White House taping system that changed history and led to Nixon's resignation. In forty-six hours of interviews with Butterfield, supported by thousands of documents, many of them original and not in the presidential archives and libraries, Woodward has uncovered new dimensions of Nixon's secrets, obsessions and deceptions.

The Last of the President's Men could not be more timely and relevant as voters question how much do we know about those who are now seeking the presidency in 2016-what really drives them, how do they really make decisions, who do they surround themselves with, and what are their true political and personal values?

  • (3/5)
    Was not up to Bob Woodward's standard of excellence. However, it was another interesting perspective on a major national event.

    It's an interesting exposition of Nixon's paranoia and awkwardness in interpersonal relationships. It's not a deep study of the Nixon White House -- confirms the view that Haldeman and Nixon ran everything and lacked any human feelings.

    5401 The Last of the President's Men, by Bob Woodward (read 24 Aug 2016) This book tells how Alexander Butterfield came to be in Nixon's White House and tells of his time there and that account is interesting but the book becomes super-exciting as it leads up to Butterfield being questioned by staffers of theWatergate Investigating committee. The Democratic staffer did not ask the question but the Republican staffer asked:" "Are you aware of the installation of anylistening devices in the Oval Office?" Butterfield would not lie andanswered truthfully. The entire investigation took a new turn and that question, asked on July 16, 1973, led inexorably toe Nixon's resignation on August 9, 1974. The book is super-interesting, even though we all llmpw the stopry. But hjis book throws new lght on the whole story and I found it super-exciting.

    Fascinating look at Richard Nixon through the eyes of Alexander Butterfield, the man who revealed the existence of the secret recording system in the White House. I found myself feeling sorry for Nixon and wondering how in the world someone so socially inept and emotionally stunted ended up as president.

    The Last of the President's Men by Bob Woodward is a thin work that could just as well not be published. It is a hatchet job on Nixon by Woodward. Very biased against Nixon. It never mentions Nixon's triumphs of which there were many. Not worth the detour.
  • (4/5)
    This is an interesting and frightening look at the Nixon White House told from the perspective of Alexander Butterfield, most famous for his disclosure of the White House taping system that helped end a presidency. Butterfield left a promising career in the military to pursue a position in Nixon’s administration through his college association with Bob Haldeman, one of Nixon’s top aides. He ended up working in an office next to the Oval Office for three years, and in such a trusted position knew many of his boss’s secrets as well as his personality quirks. Accompanying his story are the documents that verify his tales, making it an interesting walk through history.

    A splendid, insightful coda to the circumstances and human character factors that began the process ending Nixon's presidency.
