Description

The "unprecedented" (CNN), "explosive" (The Washington Post), "devastating" (The New Yorker) 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. "A damning picture of the current presidency" (CBS News), Woodward focuses here on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One, and the White House residence. This is the most intimate portrait of a sitting president ever published during the President's first years in office. "Fear is Woodward at his best, the quintessential investigative reporter with an eye for detail and an uncanny ability to get key players to ensure that their perspective is etched into history. Its timing could not be more critical for a nation exhausted by tweets and spin, and trying to assess the danger to democracy posed by a presidency that shatters its norms and demeans its institutions" (San Francisco Chronicle). "Woodward shows the administration is broken, and yet what comes next could be even worse" (The Atlantic).

Professional reviews

"With the steely, measured delivery of a seasoned newscaster, Robert Petkoff narrates an audiobook that truly lives up to its title. As he has done for decades since breaking the Watergate scandal, reporter Bob Woodward dissects the White House, in this case since the election of Donald Trump. The results are frightening. Using hundreds of hours of interviews with White House sources, notes from meetings, journals, and other available information, Woodward describes Trump as a man who refuses to read research before making major decisions and ignores and belittles the advice of experts, instead running the Oval Office on instinct and rash decisions. Woodward and Petkoff humanize other key members of the White House including embittered Chief of Staff John Kelly, erratic former Chief of Staff Steve Bannon, occasional voice of reason Ivanka Trump, and a host of others. It's a fascinating, often horrifying work of journalism. M.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
