Full Bio

Bob Woodward has worked for The Washington Post since 1971. He and Carl Bernstein are the authors of All the President’s Men and The Final Days. Woodward has won nearly every American journalism award, and the Post won the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for his work with Bernstein on the Watergate scandal.

In addition, Woodward was the main reporter for the Post’s articles on the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks that won the National Affairs Pulitzer Prize in 2002.

Bob WoodwardWoodward has authored or coauthored 18 non-fiction books. All 18 have been national bestsellers and 12 of them have been #1 national non-fiction bestsellers — more #1 national non-fiction bestsellers than any contemporary author. His most recent book, The Last of the President’s Men, was released October 13, 2015.

The Weekly Standard called Woodward “the best pure reporter of his generation, perhaps ever.” In 2003, Albert Hunt of The Wall Street Journal called Woodward “the most celebrated journalist of our age.” In 2004, Bob Schieffer of CBS News said, “Woodward has established himself as the best reporter of our time. He may be the best reporter of all time.”

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.”

In 2014, Robert Gates, former director of the CIA and Secretary of Defense, said that he wished he’d recruited Woodward into the CIA, saying of Woodward, “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.”

Have We Forgotten the Lessons of Watergate?
Addressing these questions, among others: What exactly was Watergate? Why was there a Watergate? Why did it take over two years of revelations before President Nixon Resigned? What are the five main wars of Watergate? What lessons did Republicans understand? What lessons did Republicans miss? Did Democrats understand and miss different lessons? How did Watergate define scandals such as Iran-contra and Whitewater? Is Trump headed into his Watergate? Is Trump equipped or capable of avoiding scandals? Is the power of the presidency, fully mobilized, able to thwart independent/special counsel investigations? What is the likely outcome?

From Presidents to CEOs, the Price of Politics and Larger Lessons of Leadership
From Presidents to CEOs to the personal lessons learned along the way, Bob Woodward is candid and straightforward as he shares with audiences the leadership lessons he has learned and observed over the years. Using his vast background, Woodward is able to expertly explore with audiences the successes and failures of Presidents from Nixon to Obama. Presenting case studies in presidential leadership and decision-making, he helps audiences understand where administrations have gone right and wrong in dealing with domestic and international issues and describes what to look for in future leaders. He also explores the price of politics and its impact on leadership, and in particular cites specific examples of how the relationship between the President and Congress impacts the American people. His keen insight on leading while adapting to changing circumstances is thought provoking and relevant to audiences in any industry.

The Age of the American Presidency
Donald Trump is creating an entirely new American Presidency, breaking most rules and setting a new non-traditional course.  Two-time Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward is now turning to the next president, putting him in context and addressing what is going on behind the scenes and what to expect.

Woodward speaks to critical questions such as: How did Trump get to the White House? What are his true intentions?  What can be believed? What positions are real?  What information can be trusted and what statements and tweets really reflect where he is going? Can he deliver? Who will support or attempt to thwart him? Who does he really listen to? And what may it all mean?

No one knows the American presidency as well as Bob Woodward, the Post’s veteran reporter-historian, who has written Number #1 best selling books covering all eight of the last presidents from Nixon to Obama.

No one has uncovered more of the hidden stories from the secret world of presidents, the CIA, the Pentagon and the Supreme Court than Woodward.  Beginning with the coverage of Watergate with Carl Bernstein and their book and movie All the President’s Men (which Time Magazine called “perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history”) to his two best-selling books on Obama he presents an encyclopedia of case studies in presidential leadership, secret decision-making and the hard-nosed politics of Washington.

Only someone with more than four decades of explaining and understanding the American presidency with his signature aggressive but fair and non-partisan reporting can quickly provide a timely portrait of Trump. The new president comes to an office which, as Woodward demonstrates, has an increased and astounding concentration of power.
