All the President's Men

All the President's Men - Carl Bernstein, Bob Woodward Sorry friends, I can't remember the contents of this one much. I do remember that Ben Stein, the boring teacher in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, was a young economist in Nixon's Whitehouse and is described as crying uncontrollably because Nixon is such a "great president".

I also had a book signed by Bob Woodward many years ago. He is a man who knows how to politic and, based strictly on the number of books he produces, seems to keep getting stories from inside the halls of power.
