Well written and well narrated story of the Frost/ Nixon interviews, now in the public consciousness again with the Broadway show "Frost/ Nixon" and next year's movie version. The story might remind one of "All the President's Men" or other political thrillers. A gripping account of the extensive research and uncovering of new information surrounding the Watergate robbery and coverup in preparation for David Frost's 1977 interviews with Richard Nixon (the author was on the team of researchers who prepped Frost), and how Frost, a "lightweight" in the world of journalism, was subsequently able to confront Nixon and get him to admit wrongdoing and culpability, something even Mike Wallace had failed to do.
A fascinating chapter in recent history. Wholeheartedly recommended!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Conviction of Richard Nixon?
The author provides insight as to how Nixon crumbled not at the feet of a litigator, but at the feet of Frost - the professional interviewer.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
