"The best short discussion of the distinction -- between the reporter as private eye and the reporter as stenographer -- that has ever been published. The chapter on the protection of sources is a passage that one hopes will be taught in schools."-- "The New York Times Book Review" "Long live the use of confidential news sources. . . . An inside look at the give-and-take involved in the often-dicey relationships between journalists and their sources."-- "Milwaukee Journal Sentinel" ""The Secret Man" is one of the best [of the Watergate books] at illuminating the backstage battle to bring President Nixon's team to account. . . . Eye-opening."-- "The Boston Globe" "Provocative. . . . Reaffirms the vital role that confidential sources play in keeping the public informed."-- "The New York Times" "A filling-in of many of the final blanks left in the most explosive political/journalism story ever."-- "Lincoln Journal Star"
