Publisher Description

“The work that brought down a presidency...perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history” (Time)—from Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, #1 New York Times bestselling authors of The Final Days.

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.

One of Time magazine’s All-Time 100 Best Nonfiction Books, this is the book that changed America. Published just months before President Nixon’s resignation, All the President’s Men revealed the full scope of the scandal and introduced for the first time the mysterious “Deep Throat.” Beginning with the story of a simple burglary at Democratic headquarters and then continuing through headline after headline, Bernstein and Woodward deliver a riveting firsthand account of their reporting. Their explosive reports won a Pulitzer Prize for The Washington Post, toppled the president, and have since inspired generations of reporters.

All the President’s Men is a riveting detective story, capturing the exhilarating rush of the biggest presidential scandal in US history as it unfolded in real time.

All the nuts and bolts of journalism at its best

The book is, of course, an archetypal tale of professional and ethical journalism exposing the corruption of American institutions in a naïve, post-war world for which the revelations were still earth-shattering.

The reading is masterfully done by an actor who knows and understands the material, and does not spoil it by doing ridiculous accents or voices.

I take one start off a perfect five only because either the publisher or Apple has made a mess of dividing the recording into chapters. The track breakdown and chapter titles obviously were meant for some other book - not this one - leaving them in odd places, with a final five-hour chapter.
