New York : Random House, c2012.
An intimate, behind-the-scenes account of the famed Washington Post editor's life to assess his role during such events as the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, and the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan.

An interesting read but much too much detail on the coverage of Watergate. Perhaps if you did not live through it as I did you would find the detail interesting. I think that Bradlee got lucky with Watergate which made him. True he ran with the ball and allowed Woodstein to run with it. I did not feel as sympathetic to him as all the commentary on what a great guy he was etc. He seemed pretty egocentric to me. But the book is worth a detour, albeit a long one.
