History. Language Arts. Politics. Nonfiction. HTML:50th Anniversary Edition??With a new foreword on what Watergate means today.

"The work that brought down a presidency...perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history" (Time)??from the #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.

It's hard to think of someone more closely connected in the popular imagination to secrets and lies than one Richard Milhous Nixon. On his way to virtually certain re-election, he just couldn't resist the urge to direct a break-in to the Democratic National Committee office, and the cover-up cost him not only the presidency, but his legacy forevermore. It was the reporting of Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward that really pushed the story forward, and their book All The President's Men recounts how they came to be major players in the scandal. The book is less about the underlying events than one might think, instead focusing primarily on the reporting process.

It turns out that the process of reporting a major story, involving many sources, is...kind of boring? Woodward and Bernstein try to track down sources, find them, talk to them, go back and talk to the same people again to try to get more information out of them, get referred to new sources, and then lather, rinse, repeat. The tension should build towards the next story, then the next, then the next, but it felt more like a trudge than anything else. I have to imagine that it often felt that way to report, little pieces fitting into a larger puzzle here and there, rather than a swelling towards a crescendo. But realistic or not, it doesn't make for very exciting reading. Especially when the biggest mystery of the book, the identity of Deep Throat, has been solved for those of us reading today.

I found myself wondering as I was reading if this story wouldn't have been better served by having someone else tell it. Obviously I understand why Woodward and Bernstein wanted to write the book about their own deeds, but either they're not particularly gifted at narrative-crafting or they're too far inside of it to see the forest for the trees. They recount giddily the editing that led the placement of sentences within a paragraph, making it clear that as reporters this was a fraught and tense process. But as a reader, it holds little excitement. A book that recounted their investigation and placed it in its context of what was happening at The Washington Post and in the Oval Office in a broader sense would be one I'd be very interested in reading. If you love newspaper/political reporting, or have a deeper interest in Watergate and the Nixon administration, this will be something you'll find it worthwhile to read. If you're looking for more dynamic nonfiction, this may be a classic but it is very skippable. ( )

Két ok miatt olvastam el a könyvet. Egyrészt több könyvet olvastam Bersteintől és Woodwardtól, de a leghíresebb és egyben a legfontosabb valahogy kimaradt. Másrészt pedig sokat hallottam a Watergate-botrányról, de a részleteket nem ismertem elég alaposan.

A könyvben a két oknyomozó újságírón keresztül ismerjük meg az ügyet, vagyis ( pár apró kivételtől eltekintve ) mindig pont annyit tudunk mint a két újságíró. Nincsenek más történetszálak ahol az összeesküvők cselekedeteit mutatná be időrendben vagy a hivatalos nyomozás részleteit. Csak akkor értesülünk eseményekről, amikor valaki beszél a főszereplőknek róla, ami akár hónapokkal a történtek után lehet. Különösen a vége felé zavaró ez, amikor az ügy már túlnőtt a két újságírón. Vagyis ha a Watergate ügyet szeretnénk alaposan megismerni, akkor nem ez a legjobb olvasmány. Ha viszont azt szeretnénk látni, hogy két oknyomozó újságíró hogyan deríti fel az ügyet ami végül az elnök bukásához vezet, akkor ez a tökéletes könyv.

A könyv nem túl könnyű olvasmány, a nevek többsége már nem sokat mond ennyi év távlatából és könnyű összekeverni a szereplőket akik apránként csepegtetik az információkat az újságíróknak.

A könyv olvasása után hiányérzetem maradt, aminek egyszerűen az az oka, hogy a könyv még Nixon bukása előtt jelent meg, vagyis hiányzik a történet vége, azt egy külön könyvben írták meg. ( )

This is gripping and informative, following the lead journalists thru the uncovering of the entire Watergate scandal. I got an idea of how exciting and stressful journalism can be on big events like this, and the tedium and disappointment that comes when things don't pan out. I also enjoyed the new forward that includes comparisons to the entire Trump debacle. ( )

Even as a law student I found this boring. I get the importance. I get the shock of what happened. Maybe it's because I've done two projects on Watergate and this is just... Eh. Been there. Done that. Reporters breaking every rule they can to catch actual rulebreakers in the act. Whenever I come back to this story it just further convinces me to stay away from DC and to never become an investigative journalist. I mean that's really it for me. As a beginner's guide to Watergate, sure go for it. Be prepared for a bit of confusion but the 40th anniversary has some help in it and a good afterword. ( )

Absolutely fantastic. This book went a good way in restoring my faith in the field of journalism, which had plummeted during the past 6 or 7 years due to today's sloppy and biased reporting. Seeing the lengths Woodward and Bernstein went to in order to corroborate information (at least 3 sources) was refreshing, especially given that today reporters regularly quote a pair of anonymous Twitter accounts and call it a story. Eye-opening, compelling read. Highly recommend. ( )

The best insight into how they [the USA] are governed.
adicionado por Cynfelyn | editarThe Guardian, Jon Snow (Nov 19, 1999)
 
It is a work barren of ideas, of imagination, and of a sense of either the tragic or the comic aspects of the subject, and one that would be essentially boring if it were not for the historical importance of the events dealt with. The reportorial techniques employed by Bernstein and Woodward differ hardly at all from those that might be used by a pair of reporters examining the misdeeds of small-town grafters, and while this is not in itself a failing—small fish and large ones are caught by the same means—the lack of a sense of history diminishes the magnitude of the story. But this account will be indispensable to those who for one reason or another have not kept up with the running accounts of events and to those who will someday place it in its proper historical setting.
adicionado por Lemeritus | editarThe New Yorker, Richard H. Rovere (Jun 9, 1974)
 
The suspense in “All the President's Men” is more pervasive and finally more terrifying than a suspense story which holds its readers shivering in the darkness of graveyards and gothic castles because the setting is sunny Washington, D.C., a familiar place suddenly made unfamiliar by the presence of overwhelming fear. Disaffected C.R.P.. employes trembling in their doorways, wanting to be helpful but afraid of the consequences, plead with the sleuths never to call again. “Nobody knows what they'll do,” one employe said. “They are desperate.” Who are they?...

To the President's other men and women-
in the White House and elsewhere-
who took risks to provide us with confidential information. Without them there would have been no Watergate story told by the Washington Post.
And to our parents.
