Description:

This New York Times bestseller is an insider's account of the fall of Richard Nixon and has remained an indispensable source into Nixon's presidency. Blind Ambition is an autobiographical account of a young lawyer who accelerated to the top of the Federal power structure to become Counsel to the President at thirty years of age, only to discover that when reaching the top he had touched the bottom. Most striking in this chronicle is its honesty. Dean spares no one, including himself. But, as TIME magazine noted, Dean survived, despite the opposition of powerful foes...because he had no false story to protect and he had an amazing ability to recall the truth.

Quotes:

Before you know it, you are turning the pages of Mr. Dean's book as if you are reading about Watergate for the first time. And by the time you have finished, you are convinced that no previous book about the scandal-not even those by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein-has begun to tell the inside story as this one does., The New York Times

(Dean's) lawyer warned him before he testified, 'Don't waste their time telling them what a nice guy you are.' He has apparently taken this advice to heart., New York Times Book Review

The best and most enduring book written from inside the Nixon White House...A classic of lost illusions., Sidney Blumenthal, , NYT bestselling Author of The Clinton Wars

Recommended for historians...and those seeking to explore America's governmental missteps and scandals., Library Journal

Even if it's only 75 percent accurate, this book is scarier than any Stephen King novel and should remind us all about unchecked governmental power., AudioFile Magazine
