Bob Woodward

Bob WoodwardLegendary Two-Time Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist & Author Associate Editor, The Washington Post

Called the most famous investigative reporter in America by the New York Times, Bob Woodward is an assistant managing editor of the Washington Post where he has worked since 1971. He has won nearly every American journalism award including the Pulitzer for his report on the Watergate scandal. He earned a second Pulitzer as lead reporter for the team that reported on the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Woodward’s latest book, The Price of Politics is an intimate, documented examination of how President Obama and the highest profile Republican and Democratic leaders in the United States Congress attempted to restore the American economy and improve the federal government’s fiscal condition over three and one half years. Drawn from memos, contemporaneous meeting notes, emails, and in-depth interviews with the central players, The Price of Politics addresses the key issue of the presidential and congressional campaigns: the condition of the American economy and how and why we got there. Providing verbatim, day-by-day, even hour-by-hour accounts, the book shows what really happened, what drove the debates, negotiations, and struggles that define, and will continue to define, the American future. 

Woodward’s bestselling book, Obama’s Wars, paints President Obama as a commander in chief who’s searching for and demanding – amid fierce internal debate among advisers and military leaders – an exit strategy from Afghanistan. Woodward’s book, both a national and New York Times best seller, was created from interviews with top administration officials, detailed meeting notes and classified documents.  It offers a thought-provoking, vigorous take on the policy process strategy used to execute actions in Afghanistan. Commenting on the legendary Washingtonian’s record, the New York Times has said, “Bob Woodward is the most famous investigative reporter in America.” Newsweek magazine excerpted five of his books in headline-making cover stories, 60 Minutes has featured three of his books, and three of Bob Woodward’s books have been made into movies.

In State of Denial: Bush at War Part III, Woodward provides his inside story of a war-torn White House, and how the Bush administration avoided telling the truth about Iraq to the public, to Congress and often to themselves.

Speech Descriptions

The Age of the American Presidency: What Will 2016 Bring?

No journalist or author has uncovered more secrets or probed deeper into the modern American presidency and Washington than Bob Woodward. The 2016 presidential election will be a critical pivot point in the well-being of the nation, its national security and economy.  In his 18 bestselling books, Woodward has written in depth about the last eight presidents and Washington power centers from the Supreme Court to the CIA and Congress.  He now explains what went wrong, and what worked.  He then distils out what lessons voters might expect – and demand – from the next president.

War and Terrorism: What are the Stakes for the United States?

Nothing defines the nation to the world – and to itself – as much as war. Bob Woodward has written seven books on the wars and foreign policy of the two Bushes, Reagan and Obama – beginning with The Commanders in 1991 on the first Gulf War, Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA under Reagan, four books on President George W. Bush’s wars (Bush at War, Plan of Attack, State of Denial, and The War Within) and Obama’s Wars in 2010.

Has Washington Forgotten the Lessons of Watergate?

Bob Woodward’s and Carl Bernstein’s work uncovering the Watergate scandal was called “maybe the single greatest reporting effort of all time” by Gene Roberts, then managing editor of The New York Times. It earned them the Pulitzer Prize.  Years after revelations of Watergate that led to President Nixon’s resignation still cast a long shadow.  Its lessons about secret government stand as warning signs to future presidents.
