THE PORTRAIT OF A PRESIDENT UNDER INVESTIGATION
Beginning with the story of a simple burglary at Democratic headquarters and then continuing with headline after headline, Bernstein and Woodward kept the tale of conspiracy and the trail of dirty tricks and dark secrets coming -- delivering the stunning revelations and pieces in the Watergate puzzle that brought about Nixon's scandalous downfall. Their explosive reports won a Pulitzer Prize for The Washington Post and toppled the President. This is their book that changed America.

Fascinating, stimulating....One of the greatest detective stories ever told.

Much more than a "hot book." It is splendid reading...of enormous value....A very human story.
