Book: All The President's Men

 Book: All The President's Men

Author: Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein

Pages: 400

This is my 62nd book for the year

This is the story of Watergate as told by two reporters (the authors) who investigated the story and published this book right before Nixon resigned.  It started with the Democratic headquarters being robbed and ended with one of the biggest political scandals in our nation's history.  (until recently)

This was a pretty interesting book.  I read it as part of the Rory Gilmore challenge, but glad I found it.  There are a zillion people in this book and it is hard at times to keep them all straight, but it was interesting to learn about how the Watergate scandal unfolded.  The volume I read had a recent forward from 2020 after the January 6th storming of the capital and how Trump and his presidency mimics Nixons yet still blows it out of the water.

Good book - check it out.

Stars: 3.5
