Gutsy Reporting

The classic book of the two reporters from the Washington Post, who against all odds battled through the lies to get to the truth about Watergate and the cover up that took down the Nixon White House. An amazing piece of history, excellently read and the change in voices are very good.

Wow!

Where does All the President's Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right up there. 5 stars.


What was one of the most memorable moments of All the President's Men?

The whole thing is memorable. Tense, intriguing and exciting and of course, very concerning.


What about Richard Poe’s performance did you like?

It was perfect. Clear and easy on the ear, it's read with an unhurried authority and weight that matched the seriousness and tension of the tale.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It's pretty breathtaking and heartbreaking too. It also makes you wonder who the new Woodward and Bernstein's would be these days and if any newspaper or publisher would have the belief and balls to stand by such reporting. The Washington Post folk were heroes.


Any additional comments?

I wasn't sure about getting this audiobook as I was already familiar with the story but the writing style and narration is so fascinating from the get go that I was hooked and cannot wait to recommend this to everyone I know. The 12 hr book just flew by without ever outstaying it's welcome. It really was excellent. Go listen!
