Being Nixon by Evan Thomas. A fairly objective look at a very unusual guy. His paranoia was not altogether unsubstantiated. But he became obsessed about his enemies and the liberal press to the point where it totally consumed him. The sad thing is that early in his career, he was an effective statesman an a sympathetic person. He really seemed to turn when he was elected in 1968. He had such an "us vs. them" mentality and he couldn't see past it. He was very wise about the world stage. But he saw himself as a perpetual victim. I'd give it an 8/10.
