Bob Woodward


Bob Woodward was in his first year as a reporter at the Washington Post in 1972, when he helped break the Watergate scandal. Teamed with Carl Bernstein, their reporting eventually led to the resignation of U.S. President Richard Nixon.

Working the night police beat on June 17, 1972, Woodward covered the arrest of five men caught breaking into the Watergate in Washington, DC. The suspects were accused of trying to bug the Democratic National Committee's offices, a crime that was eventually traced back to the White House.

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein followed the story for more than two years -- their book, All the President's Men, is a result of that reporting. Woodward and Bernstein went on to write The Final Days, a chronicle of the last days of the Nixon presidency. That book broke new records in the book industry, selling 500,000 copies in its first month on the shelves.

Woodward has also written about President Bill Clinton, entertainer John Belushi and the inner workings of the CIA. His other books include: The Brethren: Inside the Supreme Court, which analyzed the inner workings of the American government; Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi; Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA 1981-1987; The Commanders, which covered the events leading up to both the Panama and Iraq military conflicts; and The Man Who Would Be President: Dan Quayle. Bob Woodward currently serves as Assistant Managing Editor of the Washington Post.
