Library Journal Review

Starred Review. The Watergate scandal that brought down the Nixon administration remains as fascinating as it was 30 years ago. The account by reporters Bernstein and Woodward of how the Washington Post uncovered an intricate web of deception also remains engrossing because of its thriller-like quality. Presenting the story in the third person, the authors become characters as vivid as G. Gordon Liddy, E. Howard Hunt, and the other Watergate figures. The reporters offer an honest view of their professional and personal failings and their frequent tempestuous disagreements. Their saga is also still timely because of the refusal of so many public figures to learn its lessons about the consequences of lies and cover-ups. Richard Poe gives a smooth, impartial reading, never stressing the melodrama of these monumental events. Highly recommended for all collections.
