Tricky Dick The Rise and Fall and Rise of Richard M. Nixon (Previously published as Nixon’s Secrets) Roger Stone, Mike Colapietro
In Tricky Dick, New York Times bestselling author Roger Stone gives the inside scoop on Richard Nixon’s political career. He charts Nixon’s rise from election to Congress on to his devastating losses in the White House run in 1960 and the California governor campaign in 1962, to the greatest comeback in American presidential history. Stone reveals:
  • How the Kennedys wiretapped Nixon’s hotel room the night before the Nixon-Kennedy debate and stole Nixon’s medical records from his psychiatrist’s office.
  • How White House Counsel John Dean planned, pushed, and covered up the Watergate break-in, then sought to avoid responsibility for it.
  • How a cabal of military and intelligence hard-liners spied on and undermined Nixon to stop his pro-peace détente foreign policy.
  • How General Alexander Haig orchestrated Nixon’s removal from office in a coup d’état and brokered the deal for his pardon.
  • Why FBI man Mark Felt is not Deep Throat, why there is no Deep Throat, and why Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein lie about it even today.
    This paperback edition features new information, including an explosive new chapter about how Judge John Sirica and two Watergate special prosecutors and their staffs violated the law and their judicial canon of ethics to railroad Nixon and his men, as a result denying them the fair trial the Constitution guarantees.

    “We appreciate Roger Stone, he is one tough cookie.” —President Trump

    “Roger Stone offers a compelling alternative history and backs it with research. He revives the politics of the tumultuous 70s. His Nixon is great and tragic.” —Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News legal analyst

    "Roger Stone is the keeper of the Nixon flame."—Maureen Dowd, New York Times

    “Roger Stone has written a jewel of a political book.” —Jeffrey Lord, former Reagan White House political director

    "Roger Stone tells the unvarnished truth about Tricky Dick, the Bay of Pigs, the JFK assassination, Watergate and the secret deal with Gerald Ford for a pardon." —Jesse Ventura

    "Compelling reading from GOP Political Mastermind Roger Stone. Stone makes it clear that he hasn't written a sanitized version of Nixon's political life, 'nor is it an attempt to rehabilitate his reputation. Don't expect a whitewash of Nixon's sins because 'no man is a hero to his valet.' On balance, he conclude that Nixon's greatness and his vision for a global political realignment to achieve world peace must be viewed as well as his numerous mistakes." —Nancy Smith, executive editor at Sunshine State News

    "Stone, a hard-ball player exposes John Dean as a self-serving liar who planned, pushed and covered up the Watergate Break in for his own agenda. Stone builds on the work of Len Colodny, James Hougan, Douglas Caddy, James Rosen and Phil Stanford to prove Dean is the real weasel of Watergate." —The Broward Bugle
