    What a great journalistic story and journey Remains to be utterly shocking Great book about foul politics.

    This 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.

    Ma am, have you got any than just the facts This first hand account of the Washington Post reporting that exposed and ultimately led to the demise of Nixon s administration reads very much like a down and dirty summary of the story notes gathered by two young and very self assured journalists This is one instance in which the movie was better than the book The product is not at all a nuanced or rich historical account, but rather an amalgamation of facts, facts, and facts While facts certainly do have their place, standing alone they make for a dry and oft times downright tedious read Man cannot live by facts alone Missing from this account was any real sense for who these highly placed presidential players were, what motivated them, and how those factors led them to so willingly participate in criminal activity For that I will have to look elsewhere Nevertheless, after reading this 336 page newspaper article, I certainly do have a better sense for the who, what, when, and where of the Watergate scandal that rocked the nation at about the same time I was born, and which has remained within the American political and cultural psyche throughout all the years of my life.

    This was probably the first non fiction grown up book I ever read It s a compelling portrayal of an momentous slice of American history and journalism This evening I went to an American Cinematheque screening of 1976 film adaptation of All The President s Men Holy hotness, the camera sure does love Robert Redford And Dustin Hoffman with that awesome shaggy look.This duo had it going on, corduroy suits, big collars and typewriters.Also, All The President s Men also made Deep Throat a household term.

    Watergate has been in the news recently because of Trump I realized that I know next to nothing about Watergate Being woefully ignorant, my husband and I decided to watch the movie It was wonderful, and I made a beeline to to order the book afterwards.Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein Thank God that they pursued the story, always refusing to give up Not only did Nixon get outed, this story taught people that if something nefarious and wicked is going on I our government, they can speak up rather than sitting in silence and fear.I think we probably owe a lot of current leaks during this Trump administration to the fact that Woodward and Bernstein taught the citizens of the United States that they can fight for truth, honesty, and justice.

    Knew the story and still couldn t put the book down The movie barely scratches the surface, as does what I ve learned about it from other sources Here s the full story Exhaustion, fears, doubts, and all And Woodward and Bernstein are reporters, not storytellers Real life invents its own story, especially in this case, so that s not a detriment here But you can see their hand in this book as soon as they start shaping a story out of the facts and it s endearing how blunt and unembellished it is Even with that journalistic remove you feel for every single one of these people, maybe even so because that journalistic remove keeps reminding you, this is real life.I was born into the post Watergate world The world these two men helped expose, if not necessarily create When somebody like Hugh Sloan relates his disillusionment with the people in power People in the White House believed they were entitled to do things differently, to suspend the rules, because they were fulfilling a mission that was the only important thing, the mission what s hard to believe is that there was a time when that wasn t accepted fact What s surprising is how much innocence we had to lose Now, the Woodwards and the Bernsteins and the Hugh Sloans are the relic of a bygone era The good guys Noble and uncompromising, and I know they still exist somewhere, but as a country I don t think there s a return to that idealism I think we ve bit the apple for good.

    After reading this book I realized that Donald Trump makes Nixon look like a Boy Scout Watergate doesn t even compare to Trump raping the US constitution His corruption knows no bounds and the Republican led Senate is complicit Abuse of power, bribery, lies, deceit and even contempt of Congress I yearn for the good old days of Tricky Dick
