Publisher's Summary

Mark Felt's role in history was secured when he decided to share his views on the Watergate break-in with a young reporter on the Washington Post named Bob Woodward. He made sure that the greatest political scandal in the twentieth century, which would besmirch an entire administration and bring down a presidency, was revealed in an unchallengeable way.

This absorbing account of Felt's FBI career, from the end of the great American crime wave through World War II, the culture wars of the 1960s, and his conviction for his role in penetrating the Weather Underground, provides a rich historical and personal context to the "Deep Throat" chapter of his life. It also provides Felt's personal recollections of the Watergate scandal, which he wrote in 1982 and kept secret, in which he explains how he came to feel that the FBI needed a "Lone Ranger" to protect it from White House corruption. Much more than a Watergate procedural, A G-Man's Life is about life as a spy, the culture of the FBI, and the internal political struggles of mid-20th century America.

    "Interesting look at our shared history"
    Any additional comments?

    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.
