Book Review: The Last of the President’s Men

Woodward reveals another side of Alexander Butterfield, the Nixon aide who disclosed the secret White House taping system, in forty-six hours of interviews with Butterfield. This is the first book I finished in 2017, which was interesting to follow, especially in today’s political atmosphere.

It actually took me a while to finish, the start of January 2016, because of all the political drama, but I think this is a really good start for people who are interested in the Watergate scandal. I like that Woodward focused more into the mind set of Nixon and how the White House operated during his time, under the watchful eye of Butterfield. I felt his novel provided a great visualization by showing me what it was really like for Butterfield to take down Nixon.

By the end, I felt a better understanding of the how the White House responds when it comes to political scandals. I recommend this book.
