Nixon and I met for the first time on October 2, 1989, and he was exceedingly generous with the commodity that was the most precious to him: time.... And, surprisingly for a man who had been so often damaged by those he trusted, Nixon trusted me immediately. I became a member of his small circle of advisers. I listened as he confided his views on international affairs and world leaders, American politics and policy, Watergate, and his own personal career, and human nature.--Monica CrowleyNixon off the Record is the unique story of Richard Nixon's intense political life after he left the presidency--told by Monica Crowley, Nixon's foreign-policy assistant and political confidante during the last years of his life.With fully reconstructed conversations based on extensive notes made at the time, Nixon off the Record puts the reader in the room with the thirty-seventh president, listening to his views on leadership, his opinions of White House predecessors and successors, his activities and thoughts during the 1992 presidential campaign and election, and his assessment of Bill Clinton's first year in office and his potential challengers in 1996. Nixon's views give voters uncommon criteria by which to measure presidential candidates--including Bob Dole--and their ability to exercise effective leadership.Richard Nixon was one of the most controversial and indestructible presidents of the twentieth century. With her privileged perspective and unlimited access to Nixon, Crowley has written a perceptive and spirited memoir that shows not just what Nixon thought in the last years of his life but who he was. She offers an unprecedented behind-the-scenes view of Nixon's activities and opinions, giving the reader a front-row view of recent American political history.Nixon's unparalleled experience placed him in a unique position to judge leaders who had come before and after. His assessments are candid, astonishing, and sometimes explosive. This book places those judgments in context and brings them alive for the last American presidential election of the twentieth century.

I discovered this book while I was reading "The Presidents Club" earlier in the year. Monica Crowley was able to capture a very candid, and at times a very funny, Richard Nixon. The book is written in three sections that really define where the former president was at that point in his life. It was almost painful to read that the 1992 presidential election would be his last.

While my wife has always gravitated toward books about JFK and his family, Richard Nixon has become my new favorite. I really like this guy.

I've always found Nixon an interesting character. How he's portrayed by Crowley in his final few years of life is fascinating. A very well-written book by a very young woman who was given amazingly close, complete access by the almost always untrusting Nixon.

"Nixon off the Record" displays a President whose accomplishments are usually underrated by historians who say that he is the epitome of Machiavellian evil. This book shows the reader what a shrewd politician Nixon was. His foreign policy expertise was unbeatatble. Unfortunately, he was haunted by personal demons which ultimately set him up for his demise. "Nixon Off the Record" displays the truly human side of Nixon which most people did not really see. Crowley truly brought out the real Nixon through his observation of contemporary politics and figures who rose to the national scene prior to his death.
