Publisher's Summary

Learn the inside scoop on Watergate, the Ford Pardon, and the 18-minute Gap. Roger Stone, The New York Times best-selling author of The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ, gives the inside scoop on Nixon’s rise and fall in Watergate in his new book Nixon’s Secrets. Stone charts Nixon’s rise from election to Congress in 1946 to his stinging defeats that preceded the greatest comeback in American Presidential history.
"Just as the assassination of JFK prevents a balanced analysis of Kennedy and his times, the myth of Watergate prevents a reappraisal of our 37th President,” said Stone, who’s book on LBJ was the second biggest selling book during the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s murder.
Stone reveals how the Kennedy’s wiretapped Nixon’s hotel room the night before the Nixon-Kennedy debate, and stole Nixon's medical records from his psychiatrist’s office. Stone lays out how Kennedy's running mate Lyndon Johnson stole Texas from JFK through vote fraud while Mayor Richard Daley stole Illinois, and how JFK actually lost the popular vote. Stone looks at the Nixon Presidency: the desegregation of the public schools, the progressive social programs, Nixon's struggle to end the war in Vietnam, the historic SALT arms reduction agreement with Russia, the saving of Israel in the Six Days War, the opening to China, and the disastrous decision to take America off the gold standard.
"The mainstream media’s interpretation of the facts surrounding the Watergate episode are a fantastic and grotesque distortion of historical truth,” said Stone. "Cursory examination of the facts in Watergate will reveal that the actions that caused the fall of Nixon cannot be reduced to the simplistic account summarized by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post.”

Organization is key

Would you try another book from Roger Stone and Mike Colapietro and/or Stephen Hoye?

Probably not, if I did I would pay careful attention to reviews before buying.

Would you ever listen to anything by Roger Stone and Mike Colapietro again?

Maybe, but not my first choice.

What does Stephen Hoye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The reading was pretty good; however, whether due to writing or narration, it was often difficult to determine when the first person quotes (the longer ones) were attributed to the author or to another source the author was citing.

Any additional comments?

It's unorganized. Assumes event knowledge in the reader that someone my age (mid-40s) might not have.

Great book but....

This book was very well written and presented a fair view of President Nixon. It didn't quite elaborate enough on the speculation that lead to watergate in my opinion. I would have liked a little more. The worst part of the book is it is very repetitive. It jumps from 1960 to 1968 back to 1956 over and over again.
