Description - Trust Me, I Know What I'm Doing by Bill Fawcett
Hindsight hurts. The British Parliament passes the Townshend Acts, making the American colonies pay for their own defense - which instead starts a revolution. In 1929, President Herbert Hoover decides to let the economy fix itself . . . and the Great Depression gets greater. Charles I cuts a deal with the Irish to fight Parliament. The move loses him public support - and later his head. President Richard Nixon tapes everything he says in the Oval Office, believing it will all be of great historical value. He turns out to be right, and those same tapes cost him his presidency. As he did in 100 Mistakes that Changed History Bill Fawcett proves in Trust Me, I Know What I'm Doing that when global leaders drop the ball, the whole world shakes. With a hundred more bombshell blunders - from Pickett's Charge to the Lewinski scandal - this compendium takes a fascinating look at some of history's greatest turns for the worse.
