G. Gordon Liddy's autobiography is as spookily fascinating now as it was in 1980, especially the memorably unvarnished depiction of his early years. Listening with admiration to Adolf Hitler on the radio, seeking to free himself from "disabling emotionalism" by slaughtering chickens, young Gordon must have made quite an impression on the neighbors. The army, the F.B.I., the Watergate scandal, and jail are covered with equal pungency: you have to admire the author's ferocious candor, whatever you think of his values. This new edition features a 1996 postscript as combative as the main text. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
