Nixon-AdvisorRoger Stone, a writer and former aide to President Richard Nixon, has penned a new book entitled Nixon’s Secrets.

Stone (pictured, via) gave this statement in the press release: “Richard Nixon has been the subject of curiosity and public debate for six and a half decades. Since the time I served in his 1968 campaign, I have held a deep fascination with our 37th President and, as his friend, I had the rare opportunity to witness firsthand much of the history, key decision making, and people—both good and bad—that made for his complex and personae.”

The book features stories about the Watergate Scandal, an explanation for the 18.5 minute gap in the infamous White House tapes, and more. Skyhorse Publishing plans to release it on August 11, 2014. That date was selected to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Nixon’s resignation from office.
