Bob Woodward

The Washington Post

Bob Woodward is an associate editor of The Washington Post, where he has worked since 1971. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first in 1973 for the coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein, and second in 2003 as the lead reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

He has authored or co-authored 19 books, all of which have been national non-fiction bestsellers. Thirteen of those have been #1 national bestsellers. He has written books on nine of the most recent presidents, from Nixon to Trump. Fear: Trump in the White House, which sold more than 1.1 million copies in its first week in the United States and broke the 94-year first-week sales record of its publisher Simon & Schuster, is the most detailed and penetrating portrait of a sitting president in the first years of an administration.

He enrolled in Yale University in 1961 with an NROTC scholarship and studied History and English Literature. He received his B.A. degree in 1965 and served a five-year tour of duty in the U.S. Navy.
