All the President's Men is one of the most riveting and well-received books of the 20th century, written in 1974, the book went on to win Pulitzer Prize for its original plot and gripping investigative journalism.The book was later made into a movie in 1976 and was equally successful because of some famous names and superb performances. Robert Redford along with Dustin Hoffman played the roles of Woodward and Bernstein, two Washington Post journalists, who brought President Richard Nixon down when he was found involved in Watergate scandal.In 1974, Woodward and Bernstein published what would become the greatest scandal of all times. Richard Nixon and some other members of the cabinet were found involved in illegal fundraising and once the tip reached Washington Post, journalists followed it with religious fervor. Since the entire presidency was at stake, Woodward and Bernstein made sure nothing was published till supporting evidence could properly back it. They wrote series of articles in the 'The Post' that targeted the President and his men leading to impeachment of the President and his early resignation. However in between the articles and the elections, no real difference was seen and the President was elected for a second term. However it was in 1972 that he came to power again and from that time till 1974, a lot more happened to bring the President down.As much as the book was loved and admired for its investigative journalism, it was not until the movie version came out in 1976
that the book reached the position it enjoys today.
