This combines a personal history with a history of the N R A, up to the time of Johnson's resignation. Straight from the shoulder, honest, fearless -- it throws a good deal of light on the intricacies of the machinations, and gives a sense of security in the evidence of careful planning, of sound foundations, of desirable flexibility. There are many anecdotal facets to the picture, human interest elements. The explanation of the ""resignation"" conference, casts no reflection on the President, but places the responsibility where it belongs. The final chapter presents his own reactions on moot questions of the moment. Sure of a press, and should be easy to sell to anyone interested in Washington activities.
