With extraordinary access to the Trump White House, Michael Wolff tells the inside story of the most controversial presidency of our time

The first nine months of Donald Trump's term were stormy, outrageous--and absolutely mesmerizing. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, bestselling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself.

In this explosive book, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations:
-- What President Trump's staff really thinks of him
-- What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama
-- Why FBI director James Comey was really fired
-- Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn't be in the same room
-- Who is really directing the Trump administration's strategy in the wake of Bannon's firing
-- What the secret to communicating with Trump is
-- What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers

Never before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.

Yes, I was just in the Yarborough branch. Eleven copies on the shelf.
Big demand for this kiss and tell. I guess the Austin Public Library is rolling in the dough and can afford to waste money like this.

I wonder how many copies of the new Omarosa book are on order?

A few years ago, they also loaded up on Wendy Davis' autobiography.
None of them are on hold at this time!

I noticed that the library ordered 160+ copies of this book. I looked at all the other books about Trump and the most on hand for any one publication was 10 copies at most. I would have loved to know what was actually going on behind the scenes in Washington, but I don't think I can get that info from this book. I read the first chapter about the election night and couldn't believe the propaganda about Trump not really wanting to win. How can someone who travels all over the US giving in-person rallies, not really want to win? He had an actual platform he was running on also. If anything, Hillary probably didn't want to win as evidenced from the lack of a platform other than calling Americans deplorable, racist, misogynist, bigot, etc.. And as far as campaigning, it seemed she didn't go out for her rallies very much due to her health. Just using common sense, the book propagates lies from the very start. I tried reading the second chapter just to see if there was any substance to glean from the book, but it sounded like the nonsensical mainstream news that always bored me due to it's dry disconnectedness from reality. After reading the rest of the comments, I decided to go ahead and return the book rather than struggle to finish it.

A very easy and interesting read. Just 300 pages which connected all of the dots for me on the current mess in the White House.

Throughout the book, I kept saying, Oh, My God. The most interesting thing is the suggestion and prediction of his campaign manager, Steve Bannon (who was fired): There was a chance that "Mueller's investigation would lead to Trump's impeachment or resignation, or limping to the end of his term; and that there would certainly not be a second term, or even an attempt at one." That was said by the man who helped get him in office and tried to help him focus and look presidential--but was too much of a threat to the way he wanted to rule. I am left with the question--what happened? How will we rebound from this? SMH

Anybody with their eyes half open would be aware of the majority of happenings in this book but putting it all together in one place was smart and this book could be used to remind oneself that things aren't normal and not to get complacent. It's worth listening to, the narrator did a good job.

I found this a hard book to read even though I'm somewhat familiar with American politics.

I never wanted trump as President he’s the worst just like going to see grown-ups the movie

Interesting insight into a mind of a self thinking demigod who makes everything personal!
Author needs to put away his dictionary though, it seems like he needs to show that a he can use words that are rarely used in conversation today. The Jarvanka duo was interesting on how they influence domestic and foreign policy and how they view their own quest for power.

Illustrated by this quote, don't believe everything you hear, read and sometimes see (Part 1 of 2):
“Do you condemn the actions of neo-Nazis? Do you condemn the actions of white supremacists?”

Some ninety minutes later he stood in the Diplomatic Reception Room, his eyes locked on to the teleprompter, and delivered a six-minute statement. Before getting to the point: “Our economy is now strong. The stock market continues to hit record highs, unemployment is at a sixteen-year low, and businesses are more optimistic than ever before. Companies are moving back to the United States and bringing many thousands of jobs with them. We have already created over one million jobs since I took office.”

Illustrated by this quote, don't believe everything you hear, read and sometimes see (Part 2 of 2):

And only then: “We must love each other, show affection for each other and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry and violence. . . . We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. . . . Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

It was a reluctant mini-grovel. It was something of a restaging of the take-it-back birther speech about Obama during the campaign: much distraction and obfuscation, then a mumbled acknowledgment.
