Woodward and Bernstein: Life in the Shadow of Watergate

Woodward and Bernstein: Life in the Shadow of Watergate Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

""A thorough, diligent book. Shepard has unearthed a range of interesting details.""

--""The Washington Post""

""Shepard is far more interested in what happened [after Watergate], and in examining the uneasy rewards of early success. . . . She seems to have interviewed almost everyone with a connection to her subjects.""

--""The New Yorker""

""If ""All the President's Men"" was the ultimate work of journalistic sleuthing, Shepard's Woodward and Bernstein should be placed right next to it on every bookshelf. It is likely to endure as the definitive account of the lives of two men who changed journalism forever.""

--Michael Isikoff, Investigative Correspondent, ""Newsweek""

""Alicia Shepard has long been one of the nation's most important writers on journalism. Now she turns her attention to two of history's most famous journalists. Her book is a winner--penetrating, fascinating, and remarkably balanced.""

--Gene Roberts, former managing editor, ""The New York Times""

After Watergate--the most important event for journalism, politics, and the presidency in the past one hundred years--""Washington Post"" reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein became living legends throughout the world. Now award-winning journalist Alicia Shepard separates myth from reality as she traces the life lessons of these two iconic journalists who helped topple a president. Sorting through their early lives and divergent careers since Watergate, Shepard offers a riveting tale that draws on more than 175 interviews and never-before-seen archival materials, including the newly opened Watergate papers. ""Woodward and Bernstein"" recalls the thrillerlike pacing of ""All the President's Men"" while weaving together the long-awaited details the pair left out over thirty years ago.

Synopsis:

Based on new interviews and never-before-seen archival materials, ""Woodward and Bernstein"" takes a fresh, thought-provoking look at this unlikely journalistic duo. Thrown together by fate or luck, Woodward and Bernstein changed the face of journalism and the American presidency. For the first time, Shepard separates myth from reality as she traces the lives of the iconic journalists before and after Watergate.
