This book is the best I've read about the beginning (and middle) of Richard Nixon's life. Like all great biographies, Morris spends time on the individuals surrounding Nixon - fully illuminating a host of characters such as Helen Douglas, Whitaker Chambers, Alger Hiss, Dwight Eisenhower. I found myself learning just as much about them as I did about Nixon himself. To me, that is the critical difference between Stephen Ambrose's work and that by Morris. Whereas Ambrose's trilogy (also excellent) covers Nixon closely, this book covers him a bit more loosely to show how hard.
