Excellent. Well researched and written. Parts of it are, surprisingly, funny.
Not sure about the title - more frustration than fear. That is, the staff don’t seem to be afraid of him as such, more bewildered at having to deal with him.
A few key situations keep coming up: Afghanistan, Korea, immigration and trade. The discussions on trade were the most interesting as I’ve always wondered how such idiotic economic decisions were being made - the book unequivocally clears this up. Gary Cohn and Rob Porter come across as the main heroes (wise to Trump and, with mixed results, doing everything to try to keep him on track).
This is a compelling read. It clearly shows that Trump is someone not even his own staff can unquestionably support. Some even want to second guess him by stealing papers he is supposed to sign to stop him from doing so. Why? To protect America of course. They know better than the person who was voted in as President even though he has appointed them to their jobs! The main concern I have is that while the book carefully describes various events it does not conclude with the writer's examination of the situation.
This is a good read about an important subject, that being the "Leader of the Free World" — though I suspect that that title may be the fake news now. The White House staff may well be right to fear the consequences of President Trump's chaotic mindset and narcissistic personality even if only half of what is written is true.
I found that I could only read a chapter at a time as the constant face:desk was just too painful.
I had grave doubts about the competency of a President who announces national and international policy via Twitter. Who uses Twitter like a troll when someone dares to question his validity and understanding of important issues. Having read this book I'm in no doubt any more. God help America and God save us all.
This book was a good read by giving you an insiders, if you accept it as factual,view of the Trump Presidency. Sadly the conclusion that the President is a liar must be troubling for the USA and the world. Couldn’t say this is Pulitzer Prize material. In lots of ways the book was not written by its author but its contributors.
