Bob Woodward is an associate editor at The Washington Post, where he has worked for forty-four years. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first for The Washington Post's coverage of the Watergate scandal, and later for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He has authored or coauthored twelve #1 national nonfiction bestsellers. He has two daughters, Tali and Diana, and lives in Washington, DC, with his wife, writer Elsa Walsh.
Woodward had a lot to do with exposing the Watergate scandal, and 30 years later he examines its consequences.
M. Charles Bakst The Providence Sunday Journal Investigative journalist Bob Woodward has a new book you should read. And I can think of a couple of guys who absolutely need to read it and take it to heart. They are Texas Gov. George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore, leading 2000 Republican and Democratic White House candidates. Richard Benedetto USA Today Woodward does an excellent job of laying out how each president, starting with Gerald Ford and extending through Bill Clinton, failed to heed the lessons Nixon learned the hard way....This highly readable book tells a bleak cautionary tale of warning signs not heeded. Helen Thomas United Press International The chapters on the Clinton administration are poignant and painful for mistakes made and many regrets, for reputations lost and epic disillusionment after working at the White House. Paula Dwyer Business Week Woodward is the Energizer Bunny of investigative journalists, still going strong 25 years after forcing Richard M. Nixon from office with revelations about Watergate....Presidential candidates should read this book -- and consider themselves warned. Anthony Lewis The New York Times What drove Kenneth Starr?...As good an answer as any, I think, emerges from Bob Woodward's new book, Shadow. Mary McGrory The Washington Post Shadow is a meticulously documented chronicle of self-delusion and self-pity. It is like an illuminated manuscript expanding on an old adage, "Honesty is the best policy." It is also riveting reading. Jay Nordlinger National Review But the anecdotes...oh, the anecdotes! Shadow is swimming in them....Shadow is an engrossing work. And no one -- no one -- but Bob Woodward could have written it. Ann McDaniel Newsweek Captivating....Woodward's revealing book provides the clearest picture to date of how close Clinton came to losing his job -- and his marriage -- and how isolated the president became as Monica [Lewinsky]'s story unfolded. Peter Rowe The San Diego Union-Tribune Shadow is a master class in political reporting...breathtaking, disturbing, and fun...If you eat up political gossip, this is a gallon of premium ice cream, a tub of hot fudge and a long spoon....Shadow is a damning indictment of government-by-special-prosecutor. Nicholas Lemann The New Yorker Woodward is still a reporting god....Shadow contains vivid details, might-have-beens, and events hitherto unknown.
