Watergate’s Unexpected Hero

The Life of Peter W. Rodino Jr.

In our divided political climate, finding a deliberative leader who takes seriously the legislative commitment to bipartisanship is difficult. 

With the United States dealing with one of its worst crises fifty years ago, an unassuming congressman from New Jersey stepped up as chair of the House Judiciary Committee. Under his leadership, the committee developed the gold standard for presidential impeachment in holding President Richard M. Nixon accountable for his crimes.

Watergate’s Unexpected Hero: The Life of Peter W. Rodino Jr. tells the story of a legislator whom Washington commentators assumed would cower under national scrutiny. Instead, his calm, assured demeanor during the televised proceedings served to fortify an uncertain nation.

Rodino continued to be a respected figure on Capitol Hill, praised for his intrepid work under pressure until he retired more than a decade later. Author Lawrence Spinelli, who served as Rodino’s press secretary, tells a much-needed biography that includes much more than Watergate. The result is a thoroughly researched, fair account of his mentor’s legacy.

On the golden anniversary of Nixon’s resignation, Spinelli brings new insights into much-covered territory. Using primary sources and Rodino’s personal recollections, Spinelli illuminates an extraordinary life that began in the gritty streets of Newark’s Little Italy and grew to a distinguished public career that carved a path from the New Deal to the presidency of Ronald Reagan. 

Rodino’s journey included worked with influential political leaders to cover a wide range of public policy issues that are still relevant today, including race relations, immigration, voting rights, and economic equality.

Chris Field is an award-winning author and two-time TEDx speaker. He is the founder of Mercy Project, an innovative nonprofit that combats child trafficking in Ghana’s fishing industry. Mercy Project has rescued, rehabilitated, and reintegrated nearly three hundred formerly enslaved children back into their families.

His previous books include Disrupting for Good and A Billion Hours of Good. He lives in College Station, Texas, with his wife, Stacey, and their four children.

While all of this sounds really important and impressive (which he understands is the point of this section), he’s also just a regular guy who loses his temper, forgets his wallet, messes up a lot, and has a whole host of shortcomings equally as unimpressive as the two paragraphs above. In other words, he’s a beggar on a journey for bread, just like everyone else in the world.

Meaning Making

Learning to Be Human Halfway Through Life

This is a book for people who have been around a while and seen a lot of life . . .

People who have conquered and also failed, scaled a few mountains, and traversed some valleys.

People who are certain about a few things and much less so about pretty much everything else. 

People who recognize that being alive is not equivalent to actually living.

Meaning Making is for those who have smiled and sobbed and loved and lost and are now eyeing the time they still have, determining how to be confident they don’t opt out of the exquisite chaos right in front of them now.

No one is broken, everyone is worthy of being known, and we’re all a collection of complex, beautiful messes. These are the fundamental truths at the heart of this authentic book. It’s about becoming fully human, a moment at a time—no matter hold old you are. 

Meaning Making is not memoir or self-help. Chris is clear that he doesn’t have all the answers (or many at all). He doesn’t offer action plans, groundbreaking advice, or a guarantee to alter your life. 

Instead, he shares the ordinary, simple moments that surprisingly become important life lessons—but only if we choose to make meaning from them. Vulnerable, heartfelt, and relatable, Meaning Making is about Chris’s commitment to embracing the second half of life—and inviting you to do the same.
