Summary, etc.:
Tom Brokaw recounts the endgame of the Watergate scandal and the Nixon presidency in real time, from his perspective in the press corps as a young White House correspondent for NBC News. The last year of the Nixon presidency was filled with power politics, legal jiu-jitsu, and high-stakes showdowns, with head-shaking surprises every day. Tom Brokaw, the NBC News White House correspondent during the final year of Watergate, gives us a close-up, personal account of the players, the strategies, and the highs and lows of the scandal that brought down a president. Brokaw writes, 'Even now, almost half a century later, I am astonished by what the country went through, and I wanted to share press stories from the inside looking out, what it was like to be on call 24/7, the twists and turns, the laughs and tensions during this historic time.'

    Just in time for the Trump hearings, Brokaw takes us back to Watergate and the end of Richard Nixon's political reign. Brokaw, who was a White House Correspondent for NBC News in the 1970s, had a front-row seat to the controversies in Nixon's presidency and has vivid recall of the times. As part of the White House team of reporters, he was present at both private meetings and public press conferences. That, and time passing, allows Brokaw to add an interesting perspective to Nixon's antics and final fate. Broadcast journalism was in its infancy in the 1970s, and it's fascinating to listen to Brokaw as he describes tracking sources, sharing intel with other professionals, and developing his report. Brokaw's deep, firm voice is still recognizable despite his years, and he shares his story with enthusiasm. Younger listeners may question the uproar, but those who lived through the times will relish this insider's view of this scandal that rocked the 1970s. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
