It’s the work that brought down a presidency and launched a thousand reporting careers. With clipped prose, Woodward and Bernstein, then cub reporters at the Washington Post, recount the events that untangled the vast conspiracy behind the Watergate burglary, from a Saturday morning phone call to the shadowy Deep Throat to the scoop that spurred the downfall of a President. Published in 1974, it remains a testament to the power of shoe-leather reporting — and is perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history.
