The Last of the President's Men

Bob Woodward

Bob Woodward exposes one of many ultimate items of the Richard Nixon puzzle during this “intimate yet stressful portrayal of Nixon within the Oval workplace” (The Washington Post).

“Four many years after Watergate shook the US, journalist Bob Woodward returns to the scandal to profile Alexander Butterfield, the Richard Nixon aide who printed the life of the Oval place of work tapes and successfully toppled the presidency…Woodward re-creates targeted scenes, which show the petty energy performs of America’s strongest men…a close-up view of the Oval place of work in its darkest hour” (Kirkus Reviews). In The final of the President’s Men, Woodward unearths the untold tale in line with forty-six hours of interviews with Butterfield, supported through millions of documents—many of them unique and never within the presidential documents and libraries—and exposed new dimensions of Nixon’s secrets and techniques, obsessions, and deceptions.

“This volume…amplifies (rather than revises) the everyday, nearly Miltonian portrait of the thirty-seventh president…as a brooding, duplicitous despot, keen about enemies and score-settling and never in the least hesitant approximately mendacity to the general public and breaking the legislations” (The long island Times). this present day, The final of the President’s Men couldn't be extra well timed and correct as electorate query how a lot can we learn about those people who are now looking the presidency in 2016—what quite drives them, how do they honestly make judgements, who do they encompass themselves with, and what are their real political and private values? this can be “yet one other attention-grabbing present to background through DC’s such a lot relentless reporter” (Politico).
