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

With authoritative reporting honed through nine presidencies, 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.

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

Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files and documents. Often with day-by-day details, dialogue and documentation, Fear tracks key foreign issues from North Korea, Afghanistan, Iran, the Middle East, NATO, China and Russia. It reports in-depth on Trump’s key domestic issues particularly trade and tariff disputes, immigration, tax legislation, the Paris Climate Accord and the racial violence in Charlottesville in 2017.

Fear presents vivid details of the negotiations between Trump’s attorneys and Robert Mueller, the special counsel in the Russia investigation, laying out for the first time the meeting-by-meeting discussions and strategies. It discloses how senior Trump White House officials joined together to steal draft orders from the president’s Oval Office desk so he would not issue directives that would jeopardize top secret intelligence operations.

“It was no less than an administrative coup d’état,” Woodward writes, “a nervous breakdown of the executive power of the most powerful county in the world.” Download and start listening now!

    " While I am no Trump Supporter this book is a must read! Whether it's for the political junkie, or for the casual reader this book is just good!

    " Unbelievable that a skilled “confidence man” (I.e. con man) is ruling our country. We need to take a long look at ourselves and maybe we can respond to “What the hell happened”. Excellent book!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SAMUEL J. SPENCER USAF RETIRE | 9/19/2018

    " I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS BOOK. 97 PERCENT OF THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED WAS IN THE NEWS PAPER, EXTENSIVE COVERAGE ON MAJOR NEWS TV, NET WORK CHANNELS, OR GENERAL INFORMATION ON ALL THE TALK SHOW. FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS A NET WORK OF PEOPLE MUST BE IMMEASURABLE. YOU SURE FELL SHORT. AFTER READING YOUR BOOK. I DID NOT READ OR LEARN ANYTHING NEW. IF I JUST CAME OUT OF CAVE OR WAS RIP VAN WINKLE I WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED AND YOU WOULD BE RIGHT ON THE MONEY. EVERYTHING YOU WROTE ABOUT I BELIEVE TO BE TRUE AND ACCURATE. I DO NOT LIKE TRUMP OR ANYTHING HE REPRESENT. I DID NOT VOTE FOR HIM BUT HE IS MY PRESIDENT AND EVERYTHING THAT THIS OFFICE STAND FOR I WILL HONOR. I AM RETIRE USAF AND SERVCE 4 YEAR IN THE VIETNAM WAR FROM 1966 TO 1969 THAT SHOULD TELL YOU WHAT I THINK ABOUT THE MAN AND THE FIVE-TIME DRAFT DODGE DONALD TRUMP. HIS DISRESPECTED TO THE MILITARY, OUR GENERAL AND MY HERO JOHN MCCAIN IS SOMETHING NO AMERICAN WOULD DO OR THINK. "
