Bob Woodward gained international attention when he and Carl Bernstein uncovered the Watergate scandal in 1973. Since then, he’s worked to shine a light on the inner-workings of secret government.

Woodward’s non-partisan revelations to readers and speech audiences provide a view of Washington they’ll never get elsewhere. Woodward has written about the last nine U.S. presidents and chronicled how the power of the presidency has evolved.

Bob Woodward is author of 20 bestselling books – 14 were #1 – more than any contemporary nonfiction writer.

His bestseller, Fear: Trump in the White House, is the deepest dive ever made into the first months of any American president. Woodward’s 20th book, Rage, was released on September 15, 2020 and goes behind the scenes of the Trump presidency like never before.


In his speeches, Woodward looks at the expanding powers of the presidency and how this president and administration are governing.

He can also compare and contrast the nine presidents he’s covered and their impact on history.

And finally, he can assess the role of the media and how well it is (or isn’t) doing its job. Audiences will be awe-struck by insights from this living journalistic legend. Currently associate editor for The Washington Post where he’s worked since 1971, Bob Woodward has won nearly every American journalism award including two Pulitzers.
