Bob Woodward exposes one of the final pieces of the Richard Nixon puzzle in his new book The Last of the Presidents Men.

Woodward reveals the untold story of Alexander Butterfield, the Nixon aide who disclosed the secret White House taping system that changed history and led to Nixons resignation. In forty-six hours of interviews with Butterfield, supported by thousands of documents, many of them original and not in the presidential archives and libraries, Woodward has uncovered new dimensions of Nixons secrets, obsessions and deceptions.

The Last of the Presidents Men could not be more timely and relevant as vot-ers question how much do we know about those who are now seeking the pres-idency in 2016 - what really drives them, how do they really make decisions, who do they surround themselves with, and what are their true political and personal values
