    Hey, now I get Watergate While it s billed as middle grades, Bringing Down A President the Watergate Scandal is a great overview of Watergate for adults who never quite got the full story I m not old enough to have lived through Watergate, and just about every US history class I ve ever taken has covered 1946 to about 1990 in about three sentences So, we won World War II, but then we got into a Cold War with the Commies, and both sides made a metric shit ton of weapons Then the Soviet Hey, now ...

    E ARC provided by Edelweiss PlusUsing direct quotes from wide variety of participants in the Watergate scandal and investigation, this book provides Fly on the Wall commentary on the events that happened from 1972 to 1974, with some additional back history about some of the people involved as well I had never realized what a comedy of errors the whole thing was breaking into the Watergate, covering things up, bribing ...

    This book was great It explained a lot of the missing parts of the Watergate scandal that I was not aware of before I loved the format, especially the fly on the wall concept that was excellent I also liked the fact that the authors included direct quotes fr...

    I thought this book was an interesting look at the Watergate Scandal and I actually learned a lot even though this topic was not new to me I enjoyed the fly on the wall perspective which made it seem like you had an inside look to what was happening in the room It included some curse words but they were within direct quotes and felt appropriate for getting the tone across I think it would also appeal to reluctant readers who may find that sort of thing edgy andinteresting than aI thought this book was an interesting look at the Watergate Scandal and I actually learned a lot even though this topic was not new to me I...

    The narrative device used by the authors called Fly on the Wall is either going to work for readers or irritate them I didn t find it an issue and I do think it can help middle school readers to sort through the very convoluted issues of what was said in public, what was said in secret and clearly describes what lay at the heart of the actions of the Nixon staff.The tone is irreverent and chatty but Balis and Levy do an excellent job of presenting a clear accounting of who did what when and w The narrative device used by the authors called Fly on the Wall is either going to work for readers or irritate them I didn t find it an issue and I do think it can help middle school readers to sort through the very convoluted issues of what was said in public, what was said in secret and clearly describes what lay at the heart of the actions of the Nixon staff.The tone is irreverent and chatty but Balis and Levy do an excellent job of presenting a clear accounting of who did what when and why it mattered Having lived through this unfolding scandal, I remember the confusion, doubt and fear that afflicted most of us It was one of the many intensely disillusioning political realizations for me during that period as it was almost unthinkable that a sitting President would...

    Watergate was always a confusing part of history to me It never was covered in school and there were so many people and events surrounding Richard Nixon s fall from grace and subsequent resignation This book makes sense of all that in a very accessible format I knew it was an important time in the history of the US and now I can see whyclearly This is a book written for middle grade kids, but it would probably help adults who were a little fuzzy about those events, too The events are Watergate was always a confusing part of history to me It never was covered in school and there were so many people and events surrounding Richard Nixon s fall from grace and subsequent resignation ...

    I had great hopes for this book The illustrations seemed so promising and the cover is catchy and sure to be of interest considering out current political climate But I was not only disappointed, I was befuddled Why, for example, let a fly on the wall narrate That might be cute in a picture book, but not so much in a book about a political scandal This did cause me to see the targeted audience ages 10 14 according to the advance reader s edition I read I m not sure many kids that age are I had great hopes for this book The illustrations seemed so promising and the cover is catchy and sure to be of interest considering out current political climate But I was not only disappointed, I was befuddled Why, for example, let a fly on the wall narrate That might be cute in a picture book, but not so m...
