Kennedy & Nixon : the rivalry that shaped postwar America by Christopher Matthews ( Book )

In this startling dual portrait - a modern-day Amadeus, with Nixon as the talented, frustrated, always outdone Salieri to Kennedy's Mozart, the charismatic genius - Matthews shows how the early fondness between the two men (Kennedy told a trusted friend that if he didn't receive the Democratic nomination in 1960, he would vote for Nixon) degenerated into distrust and paranoia, the same emotions that, in the early 1970s, ravaged the nation
Tip and the Gipper : when politics worked by Christopher Matthews ( Book )
6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book relates a personal history of a time when two great political opponents served together for the benefit of the country. The author was a top aide to Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill, who waged a principled war of political ideals with President Reagan from 1980 to 1986. Together, the two men forged compromises that shaped America's future and became one of history's most celebrated political pairings: the epitome of how ideological opposites can get things done. The two leaders fought over the major issues of the day including welfare, taxes, covert military operations, and Social Security, but maintained respect for each other's positions and worked to advance the country rather than obstruct progress

With his more than forty years' experience observing people and politicians in our nation's capital'ten of those years on Hardball, five nights a week'Chris Matthews has learned from the pros what it takes to be a success. Now Matthews shows us what we can learn from the world's most accomplished people and, more important, how we can emulate their best habits to improve our own lives. In The Hardball Handbook, Chris Matthews focuses on four areas'friendship, rivalry, reputation, and success'and shows how we can cull the best traits of others and use them ourselves. Matthews takes us on a raucous road trip through political history and points out the best'and worst'behaviors of some of its most notable characters. Written in the assertive, good-natured style that is Matthews's trademark, each chapter has something to teach us. Here are a few truths from The Hardball Handbook: - People would rather be listened to than listen. - People don't mind being used; what they mind is being discarded. - People are more loyal to the people they've helped than the people they've helped are loyal to them. - Not everyone's going to like you. - No matter what anybody says, nobody wants a level playing field. Once you understand these and other universal truths'and how to make them work for you'you'll be ready to win at life. From the Trade Paperback edition
