WASHINGTON, Feb. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A journalist whose reporting led to the only resignation of a President of the United States in history, Bob Woodward, will address the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) March 31 during the group's 2011 Federal Legislative Summit.
The topic of Mr. Woodward's keynote address is "From Nixon to Obama."
Bob Woodward has worked for The Washington Post since 1971. He has won nearly every American journalism award, and the Post won the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for his investigative reporting with Carl Bernstein on the Watergate scandal. In addition, Woodward was the main reporter for the Post's articles on the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks that won the National Affairs Pulitzer Prize in 2002.
Woodward has co-authored or authored twelve #1 national best-selling non-fiction books — more than any contemporary American writer. His books have chronicled the inner workings of seven presidencies, the CIA and the Supreme Court. In All the President's Men (1974) and The Final Days (1976), co-authored with Carl Bernstein, Woodward tells the real story of Watergate and the many crimes and abuses of power in the Nixon Administration that led to the impeachment of Richard M. Nixon and his subsequent resignation in disgrace.
Woodward's other books, The Secret Man: The Story of Watergate's Deep Throat (2005), The Choice (1996) on the presidential election, Maestro: Greenspan's Fed and the American Boom (2000), and The War Within (2008) were national best-sellers for months. His most recent book, Obama's Wars, was released in September, 2010, and became a #1 national best-seller.
In 2004, Bob Schieffer of CBS News said, "Woodward has established himself as the best reporter of our time. He may be the best reporter of all time."
