Woodward, associate editor of The Washington Post, has a way of getting insiders to open up — both on the record and off the record — in ways that reveal an intimate yet sweeping portrayal of Washington and the budget wrangling, political infighting, how we fight wars, the price of politics, how presidents lead, the homeland security efforts, and so much more.

As with his 19 bestselling books — 13 of which have been No. 1 including his most recent book, Woodward provides a behind-the-scenes examination of what’s really going on and what it means.

Woodward’s story

• With Carl Bernstein, Woodward uncovered the Watergate scandal

• Author, 13 No. 1 bestsellers — more than any contemporary nonfiction writer — 19 bestsellers in all

• Iconic investigative journalist; winner of nearly every American journalism award, including two Pulitzers

• Reporter-historian with an aggressive but fair and non-partisan reputation for digging deep to uncover Washington’s secrets.  Gives audiences unvarnished look at Washington politics and leaders

• “Woodward has established himself as the best reporter of our time.  He may be the best reporter of all time.” — Bob Schieffer, “CBS News Face the Nation.”

   As a speaker, Woodward captures audiences with stories that are sometimes surprising, at times shocking, and always fascinating. Woodward helps people get behind the spin to understand what’s really going on in the halls of power.

 Woodward has worked at the Washington Post since 1971. He has won nearly every American journalism award, and the Post won the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for his work with Carl Bernstein on the Watergate scandal. Woodward was the main reporter for the Post’s articles on the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that won the National Affairs Pulitzer Prize in 2002.

Woodward won the Gerald R. Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency in 2003.
