I first read this book in paperback form a few years ago . I grew up in the Kennedy/Nixon/Vietnam era and was always fascinated by the TV coverage of events here in Australia . I remember watching Nixon's resignation on TV at my workplace after following the Watergate saga on the nightly news . Due to vision problems , I have not been able to read printed books for over five years . For my birthday this year my children gave me a Kindle and the first book I downloaded was "All the President's Men " and thoroughly enjoyed reading it again .
