Simon & Schuster to Publish Bob Woodward's THE PRICE OF POLITICS, 9/11

Simon & Schuster will publish Bob Woodward's book, THE PRICE OF POLITICS on September 11, 2012. Based on 18 months of reporting, Woodward's 17th book is an intimate, documented examination of how President Obama and the highest profile Republican and Democratic leaders in the United States Congress attempted to restore the American economy and improve the federal government's fiscal condition over three and one half years.

Drawn from memos, contemporaneous meeting notes, emails and in-depth interviews with the central players, THE PRICE OF POLITICS addresses the key issue of the presidential and congressional campaigns: the condition of the American economy and how and why we got there. Providing verbatim, day-by-day, even hour-by-hour accounts, the book shows what really happened, what drove the debates, negotiations and struggles that define, and will continue to define, the American future.

ABC's Diane Sawyer will conduct the first interview with Bob Woodward about the book, airing on "World News" on Monday, September 10. Portions of the interview will also air on "Nightline" and "Good Morning America." On Tuesday, September, 11, Woodward will sit down with George Stephanopoulos for a live television interview on "Good Morning America." An excerpt will be published in The Washington Post where Woodward has worked for 41 years.

Bob Woodward is an associate editor at The Washington Post. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first for the Post's coverage of the Watergate scandal, and later for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
