Bob Woodward | The Price of Politics

Simon & Schuster, 2012. Hardcover. New. First edition, first printing. Signed on the title page by Bob Woodward.

Regarded as “one of the finest journalistic investigators of our time” (Los Angeles Times Book Review), Bob Woodward  is a longtime Washington Post reporter and currently associate editor there. In 1972 he teamed with Carl Bernstein to unravel the Watergate scandal, doing much of the original reporting that led to numerous government investigations and the eventual resignation of President Nixon. Woodward is the author of a dozen New York Times number one bestsellers, including All the President’s Men and The Final Days, both coauthored with Bernstein; The Brethern: Inside the Supreme CourtVeil: The Secret Wars of the CIA, 1981-1987; as well as sweeping portraits of Presidents Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. Drawn from memos, meeting notes, and in-depth interviews, The Price of Politics is an intimate examination of how President Obama and high-profile Republican and Democratic leaders in Congress attempted to restore the American economy. 

Bob Woodward appeared at the Free Library of Philadelphia in 2012 in conversation with Dick Polman, national political columnist at the Philadelphia Inquirer and daily political blogger at WHYY NewsWorks. Check out the podcast here: Listen to MP3 audio (Recorded 12/10/2012)
