Nixon the man.
The fact that the audio book was narrated by Nixon himself made listening to this story much more intimate. It felt like he was personally telling me this story.
I would recommend his first memoir. 'In the Arena' is the sequel to his first original memoir.
Nixon brings to the story all the weight of his experiences via his voice. You can hear a man who is genuine in his sorrow for the mistakes he has made, but also proud of his accomplishments.
The parts of the book where he was saying that he was reluctant to get life-saving surgery after his resignation goes to show you that Nixon was truly sorry for what he did or didn't do regarding Watergate and the emotional trauma he suffered through the harassment by people and press after he resigned the presidency.
Richard Nixon is America's tragic hero. Easily the most misunderstood president in this nations history. It is unfortunate that people will only ever remember Nixon for Watergate and not the many other accomplishments he achieved in his political career.
