    Very solid bio on Nixon That said, as I was reading, I couldn t help but think of Robert Caro s massive and highly praised LBJ project The arc of Nixon s life is epic If you re of a certain age, his life covers a good part of our post World War II experience In other words Nixon, whatever you think of him, should probably be the subject of a multi volume effort Then again, any biographer is also going to confront the lifelong enigma of Nixon On o...
