He regales readers with stories about hopping a freight train when he was in the sixth grade, insights on being elected to the United States Senate, commentary on serving as Nixon's attorney general at the height of the Watergate scandal, and descriptions of life as the U.S. ambassador to India. This honest, insightful autobiography will delight the scholar and the casual reader. Readers of all disciplines and interests will find fascinating Saxbe's firsthand account of the demise of the Nixon presidency and will appreciate his candid, often earthy, prose."@en ;
