Does anyone know of a good (preferably unbiased) source detailing Watergate?

How come? I don't think you'll find a more detailed source than wikipedia. They hire authors to write those pages. I've also never seen anything false written on a serious topic in Wikipedia.

Google Books is a great source to use because its searchable. Here's a link to some Watergate books:

http://books.google.com...

It's not listed on the page but I enjoyed a book called "In Nixon's Web" it was a memoir of the FBI director L. Patrick Gray. But yeah Google Books is a great resource for reliable information.

I've already read a good portion. It wasn't as helpful as I would have liked, but maybe I'll take another look.

Sorry, they don't hire writers. It's completely volunteer based. I'm one of them.

Step 1) Go to wiki
Step 2) scroll to bottom of page
Step 3) read through the piles of sources right there

Don't avoid bias sources, simply understand that they are bias and only giving you part of the story, and gather bias from both sides (as well as unbiased). Part of understanding history is also understanding how others viewed it. Since every aspect of recorded history is recorded by a person, who may or may not have biases.
