    I read this mainly for the tidbits of information related to Mr. Baker's dealing in Ocean City, MD, but found it quite intriguing regarding LBJ and how Washington politics worked back in the 1950's and 60's.

    Great insightful look into a DC insider who gets caught up in the spoils of power. His observations on our highest levels of government are told with great honesty and reflection. The authors recollections of LBJ are fascinating and make this book a must read.
