John Dean served as the White House Counsel for former president, Richard Nixon and is best-known for his deep-seated association in the events leading up to the Watergate crimes and the ensuing, Watergate scandal. Even though he was referred to as the ‘master manipulator’, by the FBI, he pleaded guilty and his prison-sentence was reduced. However, Dean found solace in the fact that he had a wide number of admirers, who saw him as courageous and truthful rather than self-serving and disloyal. He is also an author, avid columnist, commentator, a political contemporary and a strong supporter of the Republican Party. He went on to write a number of books on Watergate Scandal and about the Nixon White House. Books such as ‘Blind Ambition’ and ‘Worse than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush’ went on to become highly popular, yet highly controversial publications, which hurled him into the spotlight. During the presidency of George W. Bush, he became an opinionated critic of the President’s administration for which he was jeered at by many. Nevertheless, he continued to publish books on his presidency and even disclosed important information about the White House through his works.
