NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin writes in a new memoir that he was the only one to understand how to recover from Hurricane Katrina, and that he endured plots against him and incompetence around him as he set his plan in motion.

That and more is in the recently self-published memoir from Nagin, who was mayor before, during and after the Aug. 29, 2005, storm.

However, many of Nagin's claims in "Katrina's Secrets: Storms After the Storm" are startling to some. Former Gov. Kathleen Blanco disputes claims that she was engaged in a power struggle with the president. And retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honore says he has no recollection of discussing a "freedom march" that Nagin says was meant to call attention to the city's plight.
