This is a richly detailed look at two complex people and their remarkable marriage. Swift’s narrative is filled with suprises, particularly in the portrait it presents of Pat. Who would have associated tender romance with the Nixons? Swift's approach to this famous couple is fresh, illuminating, and totally engrossing. I stayed up reading about the Nixons well beyond my usual bedtime.

Having read all of Dr. Swift's books, I'd like to suggest that Pat and Dick, The Nixon's, an Intimate Portrait of a Marriage, is the most superb composition out of his three books. Written in fluid descriptive language and researched carefully, it dispels many notions put forth by the media concerning the Nixon marriage. We know the public information about the Nixon's presidency but Swift reveals insights into their private lives over fifty years. I have come away with an entirely new respect for Thelma (Pat) Ryan Nixon. She was an incredible first lady who contributed such love for women's rights all over the world. Her absolute devotion to her country is inspiring. She is an example for all of us by demonstrating that we can accomplish anything through diligence and a strong work ethic. Dr. Swift makes her come alive and elucidates the many ways she honored her marriage vows. - Anne Schomaker
