All the Presidents Men by Carl BernsteinThis book was truly unbelievable. The entire time I was reading it, I kept reminding myself that this was real history and it all happened. There was so much drama in all the proceedings, and to realize that it’s the select few (in great positions) of the government beneath it all. I completely admire the reporting of these two individuals and their endless dedication to get the facts and the information correct and to the public, as well as keep their sources anonymous - I was in awe and amazement throughout every page.

All the President's Men
Bob Woodward, a journalist for the Washington Post , was called into the office on a Saturday morning to cover the story. Carl Bernstein , a political reporter on the Post, was also assigned. They soon learned this was no ordinary burglary. Following lead after lead, Woodward and Bernstein picked up a trail of money, conspiracy and high-level pressure that ultimately led to the doors of the Oval Office. Men very close to the President were implicated, and then Richard Nixon himself. Over a period of months, Woodward met secretly with Deep Throat, for decades the most famous anonymous source in the history of journalism.
All the President's Men is a non-fiction book by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward , two of the journalists who investigated the first Watergate break-in and ensuing scandal for The Washington Post. The book chronicles the investigative reporting of Woodward and Bernstein from Woodward's initial report on the Watergate break-in through the resignations of H. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman , and the revelation of the Nixon tapes by Alexander Butterfield in It relates the events behind the major stories the duo wrote for the Post , naming some sources who had previously refused to be identified for their initial articles, notably Hugh Sloan. It also gives detailed accounts of Woodward's secret meetings with his source Deep Throat , whose identity was kept hidden for over 30 years. A film adaptation , produced by Robert Redford , starring Redford and Dustin Hoffman as Woodward and Bernstein, respectively, was released in That same year, a sequel to the book, The Final Days , was published, which chronicled the last months of Nixon 's presidency, starting around the time their previous book ended.
The most devastating political detective story of the century: two Washington Post reporters, whose brilliant, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation smashed the Watergate scandal wide open, tell the behind-the-scenes drama the way it really happened. Their explosive reports won a Pulitzer Prize for The Washington Post , toppled the president, and have since inspired generations of reporters. Even decades later, this is a thrilling account of investigative journalism. It's also particularly timely considering all of the political investigation is currently happening and the current administration's feelings about the press. This book is such a great example of why free press is so important to a democracy. Aside from a few cultural references that I had to look up, this book holds up remarkably well. Readers who are familiar with Watergate will probably do a better job of keeping track of everyone, but there is a list of principal players at the beginning of the book for the rest of us.
