love Michael Prichard, wish he did more WW2 books. Like hearing an old friend each time I listen to him.

Felt and O'Connor paint a fascinating, if not troubling, view on our shared history. Felt seems to have confused when right is wrong and when wrong is right. He was proud of his work with the FBI and their denying of constitutional rights. He justified in his own mind that youth, including his own daughter, had no right to go against government and that is was perfectly fine to deny constitutional rights in name of national security. Juxtapose that with his near-embarrassment at having been Deep Throat - probably one of the greatest services ever done for this country. His bitterness at Nixon and L. Patrick Gray flow just under the surface and seem to be his underlying reasons for helping Woodward - understandable if not troubling.
I found myself squirming in my seat while listening, uncomfortable with the tales of constitutional violations so I found myself having to remind me that this is about history, not my own personal sense of moral and ethical outrage.
It is a fascinating "audio-read" - I'm just so grateful to have learned the ultimate identity of Deep Throat in my life time and for that I am eternally grateful.
