This book is largely about a major American politician and a young woman named Monica. Monica Crowley served as Richard Nixon's research assistant during the last four years of his life. She tells of Nixon's efforts to influence foreign policy during those years, as well as Nixon's thoughts on Watergate, scandals and his own personal beliefs. The book contains recreations of conversations between Crowley and Nixon, with expletives not deleted. Fields does a great job with the dialogue. It would be difficult for any female to do Nixon's voice perfectly, but she does a good job. The recording is off-putting and rough at times, such as when Fields is doing Nixon's voice and reading parenthetical information in her narrative voice.
