Review: Woodward’s Plan of Attack

Plan of Attack
Bob Woodward

No one can get the skinny like Woodward can get the skinny. There are few reporters who get to spend hours interviewing the president, but Woodward did for this book.

Woodward gets this kind of access because he is the most important investigative reporter in America. If you don’t tell him, someone else will. But like any good reporter, Woodward is concerned about keeping his sources, and while this book is informative about what was going on in the White House around the time of the start of the war in Iraq, it fails to take the White House to task for the mistakes made in those early days of the war. Its still an important book, because of the access Woodward received, but in the future no one will remember Plan of Attack like they remember All the Presidents Men.
Not recommended.
