    From one of America's most talented historians and winner of a LA Times Book Prize comes a brilliant new account of Richard Nixon that reveals the riveting backstory to the red state/blue state resentments that divide our nation today. Told with urgency and sharp political insight, Nixonland recaptures America's turbulent 1960s and early 1970s and reveals how Richard Nixon rose from the political grave to seize and hold the presidency.

    Frank says: "A 5-Star Book Injured by the Narrator"
    "Outstanding, but...."
    Overall

    I loved the book, mainly, I guess, because I came of adult age in 1960. So Nixon was part of my early adult life. As I listened, it brought back many memories of how I reacted to what was happening politically and socially around me. My "but" is that the narrator mispronounced many names. Very jarring to me: like he didn't have a clue as to who he was talking about. That said, I still highly recommend this audible book.
