"Lungren describes the real Nixon, as he struggled with and ultimately overcame near-fatal illness, depression, and political ridicule to become an 'elder statesman' constructively advancing international stability."―Choice
"Dr. Kevin Starr, state librarian of California"―Fascinating.
"Rather than retelling the familiar facts, the authors provide a fresh perspective: that of Nixon's personal physician, a post the senior Lungren held from 1952 until the early 1980s."―ForeWord
"Out of all the books written about President Richard Nixon, the Lungrens have authored one of the few chronicles I find to be totally accurate. Brings the reader a personal view of Nixon which only would be available to a long-time personal friend and a doctor who stayed within his code of ethics even under the pressure of Watergate."―Herbert G. Klein, Former Nixon Administration White House Director of Communications
"Essential reading for anyone wishing to understand all the dimensions of a great architect of peace."―John H. Taylor, Director, Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace
"Valuable for its conversation about Nixon's medical ordeals. Dr. Lungren admires Nixon but recognized some of his faults."―Library Journal
