“A treasure trove of invaluable insights from an unimpeachable source. I couldn’t put it down.”
—Frank Langella, Tony Award nominee for Frost/Nixon
“Political history that reads like a thriller. Passionate, intelligent, entertaining, and human.”
—Michael Sheen, Evening Standard and Laurence Olivier Award nominee for Frost/Nixon
“A riveting account.”
—Richard Ben-Veniste, former chief of the Watergate Task Force
"Reston’s memoir is a compact and gripping behind-the-scenes narrative focused on Frost’s struggles to prepare for his encounter with the formidable Nixon. Reston captures Nixon’s inner turmoil and myriad moods during the tapings.
Above all, the book sheds important light on Nixon’s failure to rehabilitate his reputation after his 1974 resignation."
—Matthew Dallek, Washington Post
