ENLIGHTNING BOOK Nov 10, 2007
This is one of the best and enlightning book I ever read, it shows how what people come to know about a certain fact ( in this case a fact of historical proportions ) is only a distorted and childish version of the truth : why childish ? Because the caracters are too clearly cut, the good men on one side, the evils ones on the other. Then, when in the moment of deep passions and hatred the history is written and this get sealed, several books and lectures are given in the intent of sealing it more and more. Detailed studies are produced , that are detailed only in their conformism, what a courage to kick a mortally wounded and bleeding man ( Nixon ) straining on the ground ! Then comes a book like this, that in a well searched way, details every different thread that helps us to build the complex and true web of Watergate and things you had always accepted and took for granted begin to fall down. And you see then the real cover-up and real obstruction of justice coming into action ; from whom ? Well, just those who pretended to act against it, a part of the press, the Democrats and that strange and mysterious figure going under the name of Bob Woodward.
A book for those interested in the truth that want to know about the so-called Watergate scandal without prejudice.
Last but not least, THIS is a very courageous book !!
