"A fast-moving mystery, a whodunit written with ease. . . . A remarkable book." (The New York Times)

"An authentic thriller." (Dan Rather)

"Much more than a 'hot book.' It is splendid reading . . . of enormous value. . . . A very human story." (The New Republic)

Format: Paperback
Ben Bradlee is the real hero in this book. The Washington Post's editor stood by his young reporters, when there was no apparent story to Watergate.

The fact that Woodward was a former naval intelligence officer and also a registered Republican gave weight to this classic, and to the articles which preceded it. Woodward cannot be portrayed as "anti-Republican" by a long stretch; rather, it was a Republican Administration that shot itself in the foot.

Or so goes the conventional wisdom.

In recent years, Woodward himself has admitted that he believes that Watergate has had something of a corrosive effect on the relationship between the Executive, the media and the law. 'All the President's Men' is a masterpiece and period piece all on its own, but it could usefully be read with Woodward's much later 'Shadow of Watergate', detailing the deepseated influence that the events leading to Nixon's resignation have had on subsequent presidencies.

This book is a classic, and it's amazing to think that it was issued actually before Nixon resigned in 1974, but it's a pity Bradlee's name didn't appear on the work as well as Woodward's and Bernstein's.

Format: Paperback
This is a remarkable book about two reporters who effectively brought down a president and an administration. The movie is a classic and a favorite among journalism students (this one included), but I'd recommend a combination of watching the movie and definitely reading the book. A quick compliment to the authors - the "Cast of Characters" section in the beginning of the book really helps the reader along, since there are so many names to keep straight.
This book harkens back to a time when work, time and careful documentation and cultivation of sources were required before printing bombshell accusations against an administration, unlike the scandal-mongering atmosphere from the Clinton administration up through the present. With the advent of the Internet and 24-hour cable news networks, the trend now is to publish or air rumor, innuendo or unfounded stories and do the legwork later, if at all. Woodward and Bernstein didn't do it that way - they uncovered a scandal the old fashioned way - they did legwork to ensure the accuracy of their stories. The result of their hard work and diligence is this book - the biggest, most sensational and shocking political story in the history of our country. Anyone wanting to know the inside story of Richard Nixon's fall from power, start here, and also read Bernstein and Woodward's "The Final Days." This book is a classic that will remain so 100 years from now.

Format: Paperback
Even after repeat viewings of the film "All the President's Men" on DVD, and really appreciating what a classic it is, it cannot beat the original book. In fact, along with "The Final Days," the film is even *better* when read in tandem with the book. Students should be reading it in either high school or college - it is not only compulsively readable, but manages to help those of us born after Watergate understand what really happened. And it's also a great introduction to life inside the (Washington D.C.) Beltway.
The reputation of journalism as a profession, and the ideal of truth and accuracy in reporting, has taken a beating. In the last few years, between the Jayson Blair scandal at the New York Times and the New Republic embarassment with Stephen Glass, it's refreshing to read this book and see what journalism is meant to be. For one thing, Woodward and Bernstein endeavored to be objective even when describing themselves, and their own actions - being honest about their own weaknesses and habits as reporters. There is no bombast or ego here, or in "Final Days", about what brilliant reporting they did, or how they broke this white-hot story when they were both quite young. It makes Blair and Glass's arrogance much harder to stomach.

Format: Hardcover
On June 17, 1972 Bob Woodward received a telephone call and was asked to cover a burglary of Democratic headquarters; he had just finished some stories on the attempt to assassinate George Wallace. All five burglars stood out against the usual suspects in police court; all had CIA connections.
Page 21 tells of the investigation into McCord's activities; he worked full-time for the Committee to Re-elect the President. McCord followed orders unquestioningly, did not act on his own initiative. Two of the burglars had the name and phone numbers of Howard Hunt. This number led to Charles Colson, then to the R. Mullen Company. Pages 24-25 tell how address books and telephone numbers were used in this investigation, with off-the-record reports. While this burglary was bungled, how many others succeeded (p.26)? The purpose of the break-in was for "scandal, gossip" (p.27). [To find someone vulnerable to bribery or blackmail who could be used as a spy or saboteur.] There were too many coincidences in this story (some of these burglars were around when offices of prominent Democratic lawyers were burglarized). While a burglary usually means taking something away, it could also be used to plant incriminating papers. Days later John Mitchell resigned as manager of the Nixon campaign (p.30). Bernstein went to Miami, and found out that a $25,000 check donated to President Nixon's campaign was deposited to the bank account of one of the Watergate burglars (p.44). Page 45 gives an example of how confidential medical records are used in politics. The GAO audit determined that over $500,000 in campaign funds was mishandled (p.40). They learned about money-laundering (p.54). Page 55 explains how this is raised for protection money.
