BOB WOODWARD  FEBRUARY 6, 2017

Legendary Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalist/Author and Associate Editor, The Washington Post

The most famous political investigative reporter in America and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Bob Woodward provides a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of government, politics and the role of leadership.

Bob Woodward is an associate editor of The Washington Post, where he has worked since 1971. He shared two Pulitzer Prizes-- first in 1973 for the coverage of the Watergate's scandal with Carl Bernstein, and second in 2002 as the lead reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

He has authored or co-authored 18 books, all of which have been national non-fiction best-sellers. Twelve of those have been #1 national best-sellers, spanning the years from 1974 to 2010. Bob Schieffer of CBS News has said, "Woodward has established himself as the best reporter of our time. He may be the best reporter of all time."

In 2014, Robert Gates, former director of the CIA and secretary of defense, said that he wished he'd recruited Woodward into the CIA: "He has an extraordinary ability to get otherwise responsible adults to spill [their] guts to him...his ability to get people to talk about stuff they shouldn't be talking about is just extraordinary and may be unique."

Gene Roberts, the former managing editor of The New York Times, has called the Woodward-Bernstein Watergate coverage "maybe the single greatest reporting effort of all time." In listing the all-time 100 best non-fiction books, TIME magazine has called All The President's Men by Bernstein and Woodward "perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history."

Woodward's latest book, The Last of the President's Men (October 2015), provides the last pieces of the Nixon puzzle and is based on 46 hours of interviews with President Nixon's aide, who revealed the secret tapes, and thousands of new documents from the Nixon White House.
