In America's capital city, where little stays secret for long, the identity of Deep Throat - the mysterious source who helped Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein break open the Watergate scandal in 1972 - remained hidden for thirty-three years. Now, Woodward tells the story of his long, complex relationship with Mark Felt, the enigmatic former No. 2 man in the FBI who helped end the presidency of Richard Nixon. The Secret Man chronicles the story in intimate detail, from Woodward's first, chance encounter with Felt in the Nixon White House, to their covert, middle-of-the-night meetings in an underground parking garage, to the aftermath of Watergate and decades beyond, until Felt finally stepped forward at age 91 to unmask himself as Deep Throat. It is an intense, 33-year journey and the gripping final chapter to one of the most exciting periods in journalistic and political history.

Recensioner i media

"The best short discussion of the distinction -- between the reporter as private eye and the reporter as stenographer -- that has ever been published. The chapter on the protection of sources is a passage that one hopes will be taught in schools."-- "The New York Times Book Review" "Long live the use of confidential news sources. . . . An inside look at the give-and-take involved in the often-dicey relationships between journalists and their sources."-- "Milwaukee Journal Sentinel" ""The Secret Man" is one of the best [of the Watergate books] at illuminating the backstage battle to bring President Nixon's team to account. . . . Eye-opening."-- "The Boston Globe" "Provocative. . . . Reaffirms the vital role that confidential sources play in keeping the public informed."-- "The New York Times" "A filling-in of many of the final blanks left in the most explosive political/journalism story ever."-- "Lincoln Journal Star"
