    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.

    Paula says: "Wholeheartedly agreeing with Jerrold"
    "Good Book, Terrible reader"
    Overall

    Nixonland is a fine book. It gives background information on our history that is sometimes lacking in books of this time period.

    That said, my main objection is that the reader cannot seem to pronounce names of people,places, and even ordinary words. One would think that an editor or someone would have checked this out.

    As I said earlier, the book is good, but the mispronounced words really detract the listener.
