    " Watergate starts as a little break-in into an unimportant office (as far as elections are concerned) to move a bug from a hair-appointment-makng secretary's phone. What an inauspicious beginning to such a mess. And then two curious reporters follow the money used to pay for the break-in and a president tries to block the curious reporters and the even more curious Senators and history is made. In a nut-shell, this is Watergate. This is the reporter's story which led to a stunning historical event. It helps that Bernstein and Woodward a good writers as well. This book needs to be read by all informed Americans. "

    " In spite of its slow start, All the President's Men is the riveting story of the investigative calisthenics Washington Post reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward performed to uncover one of the greatest political scandals in American history. Tracing Watergate, and the quasi-legal entanglement of activities of which Watergate was only a part, from pawns like James McCord and Donald Segretti all the way to the President's innermost circle of allies was no small feat. Bernstein and Woodward's courage, persistence and ingenuity, in combination with their connections to reliable sources like the mysterious Deep Throat, the reluctant Bookkeeper and Hugh Sloan, is what led them to gradually break down the layers of insulation between the White House and the American public. The stories they uncovered went ever higher, and ever more controversial. This is not only a comprehensive account of the Watergate scandal, but a reminder, a warning of what our civil servants are capable of. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Law | 2/3/2014

    " Very well done. It describe in detail how two reporters discovered what was to be one of the biggest scandals in American history. It gave an accurate portrayal of the significance of the stand the Washington Post took in protecting its journalists and running a story despite the immense pressures it was getting from the White House and others. "

    " It reads like a thriller novel, but it was all true! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick Belair | 1/25/2014

    " This is a book that I should have read a long time ago.It was very interesting a must read for anyone who follows politial events,true crime etc. it's amazing how a few people in power can become so paranoid about anything that there willing to go against there beliefs and commit crimes they would not ordinarly commit. Power corrupts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 1/23/2014

    " What's most striking is how terribly this book is written. Not that I could put it down. (ps totally addicted to the movie adaptation, which I've seen like 7 times now) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bronwyn | 1/21/2014

    " This book is probably only a 4, but I was so caught up in this piece of history that I gave it a 5. Whiile reading, I kept forgetting I was reading non-fiction and would think it was a thriller. I also would mix up the Nixon and Bush Jr. Administrations in my head while reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Tickner | 1/20/2014

    " This non-fiction mystery novel kept on the edge of my seat at the end of every single chapter. "All The President's Men" follows the story of two young reporters from the Washington Post and there journey as they solve the mysterious burglary at the Democratic headquarters at the Watergate office-apartment-hotel complex. The more you read the story unfolds. The simple burglary changes to a tale of conspiracy and deception that leads to the ultimate resignation of president Nixon. I suggest this to anyone who enjoys reading. "

    " I read this while I was in J-school. It was relatively boring drawn out exercise in Bernstein hero worship. The author is exposed as a self agrandising opportunist still playing out his hand in using the ebittered deep throat annomininity to run his career on fumes. Woodward and Bernstein are washed up loosers who even Redford and Newman could not gloss. Do not waste your time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dutch | 12/25/2013

    " This is one of the best books I've ever read. I thoroughly enjoyed it even though I was just a wee kid when all these shenanigans when down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Mader | 12/5/2013

    " re-read this, again--the book is starting to break at the spine. It's the copy I bought in 1976, when I was fifteen (and able to follow the story a bit better than I could at eleven, twelve, and thirteen . . . .) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zachary | 11/15/2013

    " Well written journalism, reads like a thriller and keeps your interest. Nixon was a frightening fellow, but the shock of the deeds he did is lessened by the travesties of Bush 43. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 11/1/2013

    " Who didn't want to be an investigative reporter after reading this book? Interesting contrast of styles between Bernstein and Woodward. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 10/21/2013

    " I've read this book twice; once in high school and again for a college course. It's a great investigative-journalism story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 9/29/2013

    " Great book on Watergate, Richard Nixon, and all of the yahoos that allowed the whole things to happen. Bernstein proves in this book why he was the man that could go head to head with the Nixonian machine to uncover the truth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theresa | 9/14/2013

    " Excellent re-telling of the Watergate conspiracy. Only complaint would be that the book is all facts, no fluff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophie | 8/23/2013

    " I devoured this book when I read it in high school. I was at the perfect idealistic age and got very caught up in the excitement of the activism and journalistic heroism. Plus, it is fascinating from a historical perspective and super readable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 8/14/2013

    " One of the best books I've read in a long time! An engrossing thriller that takes you behind the scenes in the Washington Post's Watergate reporting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ponder | 7/28/2013

    " Read it....you'll be glad you did! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 7/16/2013

    " facinating! I didn't know much about Watergate, well, much other than "I am not a crook." :) This reads really well - kudos to Mr. Bernstein! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 6/10/2013

    " A classic. Really a bit weird that Carl Bernstein refers to himself in the third person, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 4/15/2013

    " More than anything, this is about what it is to be a great reporter. And about how, ofentimes, being a great reporter involves hiding out in a porn theater to avoid being subpoenaed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brent | 2/2/2013

    " The book is waaay better than the movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betty Jo | 10/30/2012

    " Having lived through Watergate, this book brought it back to life with great clarity. "
