"The famous-- and infamous-- Nixon White House tapes that reveal for the first time President Richard Nixon uncensored, unfiltered, and in his own words. [His] voice-activated taping system captured every word spoken in the Oval Office, Cabinet Room, and other key locations in the White House, and at Camp David-- 3,700 hours of recordings between 1971 and 1973. Yet less than 5 percent of those conversations have ever been transcribed and published. Now, thanks to professor Luke Nichter's massive effort to digitize and transcribe the tapes, the world can finally read [more printed versions of the conversations of] one of the most important and controversial presidencies in U.S. history"-- Provided by publisher.

Lots of info but surprisingly it was already common knowledge . Worth reading if only to gather the character of Nixon. It is no wonder we are jaded by politics .
