Richard Nixon was my favorite character because of the influence he had on all the presidents after his resignation up to and including Bill Clinton.
He was outstanding portraying all the characters.
I found myself laughing out loud and weeping all through the book. It just drove my two dogs crazy.
I am 66 years old, have always been interested in politics, and a news junkie but nothing you thought you ever knew can prepare you for the revelations in this book. It's one of those "I didn't even know that I didn't know" kind of things. "The President's Club" will blow your mind and you will come away with a new respect for the President be they Republican or Democrat.
It's up there.
This is the first book by Chris Matthew's I've read. I am an avid watcher of Hardball and have followed Chris for more years than I care to remember. His constant interruption of his guest just irks me to no end. I have to admit he has improved his manners.
I was reluctant to purchase this audiobook because it was read by the author. However, listening to the sample changed my mind and I purchased it. What a treat. Chris didn't miss a beat and kept me up for hours listening. I listening to the book in two settings.
I found myself envious of Chris' life. From Africa to the halls of power and sometimes the man behind the man. I kind of understand why he interrupts his guest so often. He just doesn't have the time nor the patience for the bullshit.
I found myself at times emotionally drained. Like I was there in the room when it all went down. A fly on the wall so to speak. I was totally drawn into the story. I found myself comparing the past with the present situation going on now in the congress. This book should be required reading for all of congress.
