Bob Woodward: The Last of the President’s Men Book Summary
Robert Upshur Woodward but “Bob” as he likes to be called is 73, is a well-known investigative journalist, and a living institution in the United States. Its recognition began when it helped to unveil the problem raised by Watergate, which ended up causing to resign the then president Richard Nixon.
He graduated from Yale University in 1965, served under the US Army for five years as a communications officer. He then worked for one year in Montgomery County and later worked for The Washington Post.
Eventually he won the Pulitzer, his fame and reputation were growing and served as a star reporter for the TWP newspaper, which he even became deputy editor of research news, that happened in 1982.
This is a portrait of the deepest and most intimate of the nation’s 37th President Richard Nixon in the Oval Office. Author Bob Woodward puts the missing pieces on the table to understand Richard Nixon.
Woodward does not detail the little-known story of the then-President’s assistant, the person directly responsible for Richard Nixon’s resignation when he exposed the White House’s secret recording system, Alexander Butterfield. After forty-six hours of interviews, and with thousands of supporting documents, some are not even in the presidential archives, Bob Woodward has researched again and discovered details that had not previously seen the light, new secrets and tricks of Richard Nixon.
This book is undoubtedly very timely, and serves as a reference on how we voters question how much we know about the people who are candidates to take the presidency of the United States in 2016, that is, what are their real reasons . It is certainly a book not suitable for conformist people who never question anything, but on the contrary, it is for those who seek answers and always ask questions.
In this book he amplifies the portrait of the former Nixon’s population, it is no other way than a despicable and unjust human being, a vengeful person who became obsessed with revenge, did not fear to violate the law, much less lie to the masses.
The Last Of The President’s Men, is an invitation to the truth, to be witnesses of the vestiges that the history left to be found, the archives stored, in physical and also in the memory of Alexander Butterfield. He was the chief of staff at HR Haldeman, documented and recorded all of Nixon’s conversations at the Oval Office. Alexander Butterfield gave Woodward access to the archives, some had never seen the light until now, unpublished photographs, much information that the reporter would never have imagined.
