Description

THE INSIDE STORY ON PRESIDENT TRUMP, AS ONLY BOB WOODWARD CAN TELL IT

With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump's White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence.

Fear is the most intimate portrait of a sitting president ever published during the president's first years in office.

    Woodward's book confirms what we already knew - Trump really IS a moron. He's an arrogant, ignorant, reckless, dangerous, malignant man, and we should all be afraid, especially if he gets re-elected.
  • (4/5)
    Fascinatingly detailed account - with actual conversations on essential topics of government policy, all reflecting Trump's questionable knowledge of any subject related to governing and his impatient and immature reactions to his advisers - not that we didn't know all this already, but at the same time, another poignant proof, in much, much detail. If it were not for such a credible journalist as Bob Woodward I would be skeptical about how such detailed conversations could have been obtained. I listened to the audio version - very well narrated by Robert Petkoff.

    Extremely well-documented and frightening account of life in the Trump White House. Irrespective of party affiliation, Woodward's book does little to build confidence in our current administration.

    I thought an interesting book to listen too, Not sure if this book was meant to bash Trump but for his base I'm sure it had the opposite effect. The final words in the book was no great revelation, Trump is an Effing Liar. No news here. Enjoyed the banter between the political players.

    This is a book read with horrified fascination. Mr. Woodward is a reporter who works by accumulating a number of details and then letting the subject reveal itself in short snippets, presenting short scenes and encounters that gradually build up a picture of the circumstance he wishes to describe. He does it well, and this bok is a worthy addition to his other political works. Woodward dwells on the difficulty of trying to create a coherent polcy from a set of wildly shifting prononcements from a man who came to the conclusion that the basis of all leadership is the constant conflict of advisors who are kept in a state of near panic by the inconsistencies of their boss. I am not going to describe Donald Trump as a leader, for his manner and talents do not lie in the field of bringing out the best in his subordinates but instead, in using them to set up dramatic scenarios which allow him to appear as as "Decider" who swoops down from his superior perch and blesses or damns the hopeful aspirants who surround him. The matter of the scenarios does not matter to Trump as much as the dramatic playlets he can create for his personal theatre. It is no way to run a presidential administration.The book deals almost entirely with the very domestic management of the President and his White House team, and the public relations staff, as well as his corps of lawyers. There is practically nothing about the foreign policy of the USA, nor with the domestic manipulation of the Congress except as it functions as the matter of the playlets. A chilling and very narrow focus is maintained, creating a portrait of a man who, not having very much real self confidence, has substituted the creation of fear by his serious inconsistencies, rather than by any organized program. Mr. Woodward has not chosen to follow what may appear to be the president's gradual loss of focussed energies, as that was probably not as pronounced by the time of preparation and publication, finishing in summer 2018, compared to the events of the winter and spring of 2018-2019.
