Browseabout Books in Rehoboth Beach will host a book-signing event with “The President’s Man” memoir author Dwight Chapin from 1 to 4 p.m., Sunday, July 3.
Dwight Chapin was an advisor, a confidant and a friend. Most importantly, he knew Richard Nixon longer and more intimately than almost any other person outside Nixon’s family.
As his personal aide and then deputy assistant in the White House, Chapin was with Nixon in his most private and most public moments. He traveled with him, and assisted, advised, strategized, campaigned and learned from one of America’s most controversial presidents.
As Bob Haldeman’s protege, Chapin worked with Henry Kissinger in opening China, then eventually went to prison in the aftermath of Watergate though he had no involvement in it.
In this memoir, Chapin takes readers on an extraordinary historic journey, presenting an insider’s view of America’s most enigmatic president. Chapin relates his memorable experiences with the people who shaped the future: Henry Kissinger, his close friend Bob Haldeman, Choi En-lai, Pat Nixon, the embittered Spiro Agnew, J. Edgar Hoover, Frank Sinatra, Mark "Deep Throat" Felt, young and ambitious Roger Ailes, and John Dean.
“The President’s Man” reveals startling new insights and conclusions about the scandal that brought down Nixon’s presidency.
After his time in the White House, Chapin was publisher of Success Magazine and then managing director, Asia, for Hill and Knowlton Public Relations. For the last 25 years, he has managed his own consulting firm focused on communications and strategic planning. He lives in Riverside, Conn., with his wife Terry. “The President’s Man” is his first book.
