Product description

Review

'In the worldwide capital of leaks and anonymous dishing that is Washington, secrets can be almost impossible to keep. But somehow over the past 19 months, the fact that America’s most famous investigative journalist was quietly chipping away at a book that delves into the dysfunctions of President Trump’s White House remained largely unknown.' (The Washington Post)

'Senior officials, acting as lone wolves concerned with preserving their own reputations, spoke to Woodward on their own — with some granting him hours of their time out of a fear of being the last person in the room to offer his or her viewpoint. As one former administration official put it: "He hooked somebody, and that put the fear of God in everyone else." Another former official added: "It’s gonna be killer. Everyone talked with Woodward.”'  (Politico)

'Donald Trump is about to get the Bob Woodward treatment.' (CNN)

'He has an extraordinary ability to get otherwise responsible adults to spill [their] guts to him . . . his ability to get people to talk about stuff they shouldn’t be talking about is just extraordinary and may be unique.' (Robert Gates, former director of the CIA and Secretary of Defense, on Woodward)

'I think you’ve always been fair.' (President Donald J. Trump, in a call to Bob Woodward, August 14, 2018)

'The sheer weight of anecdotes depicts a man with no empathy and a pathological capacity for lying.' (The Financial Times)

'Fuelling his narrative is an astonishing cast of rogues, ideologues, self-made millionaires and men in uniform who have spent the past two years in and out of Trump's administration.' (The Sunday Times)

'In Woodward’s meticulous account of office intrigues, the president’s men don’t seem to be trembling with fright. What they mostly feel is contempt for Trump or pity for his ignorance and the “teenage logic” of his obsessively vented grievances.' (The Observer)

'Horribly fascinating. Strongly recommended. If you can bear it.' (Richard Dawkins)

'To me the standout message from the book . . . is that the president is a bit clueless, a bit vain, a bit dangerous even; but his people are utterly at sea . . .’  (Justin Webb The Times)
