It's almost impossible to read The Final Days without wanting to highlight multiple passages which correspond to what's going on in today's political arena. The parallels resonate. What is fascinating about this book is to see how slow and methodical the wheels of justice move, to understand the behind the scenes maneuvering, to learn what "unindicted co-conspirator" really means, and to understand how that fact was withheld from the public and used as a bargaining chit to - unsuccessfully - force Nixon to produce more desired materials. If you want to better understand what's going on today and what happened yesterday, The Final Days is a must read. Fascinating.
