    1 thought on “A G-Man's Life: The FBI, Being 'Deep Throat, ' and the Struggle for Honor in Washington

    1. What was the deal with that interminable introduction?! It went on forever and yet went nowhere. Get by that and you're in for a treat! Mark "Deep Throat" Felt, the man who made it possible for Washington Post reporters Woodward and Bernstein to discover the truth behind Watergate, has written a fairly captivating memoir in A G-Man's Life.Felt was an FBI agent from the earlier days of the bureau who rose up through the ranks to become one of its top officials. Many of the FBI stories he relates [...]

    2. Once again I have a problem with a subtitle. In this case it's the part about "being Deep Throat". This memoir was written in the 1980s, prior to Mark Felt coming out as Deep Throat. So he doesn't write about being Deep Throat. The editor/cowriter/family friend adds a subchapter based on his best guesses, but all Felt says is that he talked with Woodward several times. That's it - one sentence. By the time Felt came out as Deep Throat in the 90s, he was already beginning to suffer from dementia [...]

    3. I had no idea how interesting Felt's career before Deep Throat was. This book and its posthumous editing/additions provides an extremely thorough history of the man an his motivations.

    4. The thought of that secret resting with that man all these years is chilling.Reads a little slow at the end.

    5. Most of the info is in the preface. The writing of the actual memoir is weak, and a little slow moving. Kind of a let down to the greatest reveal in US journalism.

    6. Mark Felt was "Deep Throat". The guy who brought Nixon down. The lone voice of truth in a time of dark, dark lies and a government that was covering up a cover-up. He was an FBI agent, a close assistant to J. Edgar Hoover, and one of the few candidates to replace the famous cross-dresser after he died. He should be regarded as an American hero in a fair world. But this is not a fair world. Despite Felt's best attempt to portray himself in the best light, it is hard to square his questionable mem [...]

    7. Mark Felt objected to the term "Deep Throat"-thinking that it meant that he was continuously leaking to Bob Woodward and of course, objecting to the connection with the Linda Lovelace movie of the same name. It appeared that Mr. Felt didn't feel that he leaked anything to Woodward (even testifying under oath that he did not)-but that rather Felt always maintained that he confirmed what Woodward already knew.It is very evident that the Felt family are trying to reframe the Watergate story where i [...]

    8. The ultimate G-man, Mark Felt lived inside the FBI world while rising to the top echelons. He was a close confidant and assistant to Herbert Hoover and a patriot. But his loyalty was not to the bureaucracy world of the FBI but to the ideals of a nation in which he served. This led him to the most important pivotal role which was press informant. Now he comes clean and to how the world knew of his alias Deep Throat. Journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein went on to expose the inner world of [...]

    9. A G-Man's Life: The FBI, Being "Deep Throat," and the Struggle for Honor in Washington by Mark Felt and John D. O'Connor (Public Affairs 2006) (Biography). This is the autobiography of "Deep Throat", the unnamed source who gave Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post the scoops that kept the Watergate Conspiracy unraveling. Mark Felt was an FBI agent who helped bust the Weather Underground and helped send Richard Nixon into exile and disgrace. He has interesting tales to tell. My [...]

    10. Good review of the history of the FBI through the eyes of one of its most important agents. Really very little mention of Felt's rôle as Deep Throat but he had bad dementia by the time he allegedly gave "consent" to reveal his identity. Bob Woodward did not think it was ethical for a demented Felt who barely remembered Watergate to release his vow of secrecy but the family and his attorney were ok with it which is why they released the info and is why Woodward would not help write this book.

    11. This was interesting for me because I was in junior high and high school while all this was going on and I never paid attention. Of course this is told from one man's perspective, but he seems like he has a lot of integrity and seems believable. It was worth reading even though this is not my kind of book usually.

    12. The book demands attention just because of the Watergate connection, but it is much more a personal account of Felt's career as an FBI agent than a juicy exposé of parking garage meetings with Bob Woodward. It was plodding at times, yet I still found it much more interesting than Woodward's book on Felt, "The Invisible Man." I'm not sorry I bought it.

    13. A good history lesson on "Deep Throat" (Watergate) and how a U.S. Presidency almost came totally apart. The question why Mark Felt was the informant was never really answered other than it was his "duty."

    14. Interesting how much has changed. It seems like today political figures are able to get away with so much intrigue, and no one calls them on it, either from the investigating agencies or the media. A lot has changed since Watergate, that's for sure

    15. It was interesting but Felt was not a very interesting guy; and he was goo gung-ho for Hoover for my taste.

    16. It could have been a great book or even a good book. Instead, it is neither. The blame belongs to both Felt and O'Connor.

    17. Interesting confession of "Deep Throat" and description of the inner-workings of the FBI from the Nazi era to the 70s.
