SYNOPSIS: Only the Pulitzer Prize-winning team of Woodward and Bernstein could have written this shattering portrait of the Presidency in crisis. #1 ON DAY OF PUBLICATION The first book in history to become a #1 bestseller from the day it appeared, The Final Days continued in that position for months on end, setting and breaking publishing records along the way . . . selling over three quarters of a million copies in bookstores across the country . . . making front page headlines throughout the world. It is, without a doubt, the most important book ever written about the Presidency, the nation, and ourselves. Bob Woodward, 33, coauthor with Carl Bernstein of All the President's Men, covered Watergate for the Washington Post from June 1972 to August 1974. Born in a suburb of Chicago, he graduated from Yale University in 1965, spent five years in the Navy as a communications officer, and worked on the Montgomery County, Maryland, Sentinel before joining the Post in September 1971. Carl Bernstein, 32, was born in Washington, D.C., attended the University of Maryland, and started his career in journalism at 16, as a copyboy for The Washington Star. He became a full-time reporter at 19 and has worked at the Washington Post since 1966. He is coauthor of All the President's Men. With the kind of investigative journalism that won their newspaper the Pulitzer Prize for its Watergate coverage (for The Final Days, Woodward and Bernstein interviewed nearly 400 persons), the authors portray the participants in this extraordinary drama as only those backstage were able to observe them. The portrait that emerges of Nixon, the Nixon family, Kissinger, Haig, Ziegler, the lawyers - and of a presidency in disarray - will be discussed for years to come.
