Explosive. Morbidly fascinating. Wolff does a fine job detailing the utter chaos that reigns in the White House. Keeping up with the multitude of players was a little challenging, but reading it was like living a train wreck while being unable to jump off to save yourself. And no, it's not Nikki Haley. 4.5 stars.
This is a really good book about the first nine months of President Trump's administration. It gave a great look at the people that were behind the scenes.
When this first came out and the hype it was getting about 'interviews with people in the Trump White House circle' I wanted to read it but oh my does it get boring fast!
I think if you watch the news everyday you already know that Trump is pretty much described (in different words) as an imbecile with no knowledge of how government works and has no interest in it and wants someone else to do all the work for him, he just wants to be Trump
The first few pages were kind of interesting as it gives a little insight into what kind of person he is and I found it interesting to know that him and his wife hardly ever have any time together, they just go their separate ways and maybe meet in passing in the hallway, and he is an absentee father for all his children and especially Barron
But after 75 pages (and I struggled to get that far) it was just so boring I gave up, I didn't want to read this book and learn about Bannon (who is a nasty looking person) and a lot of the book is about him
I don't recommend this to anyone, it is not well written at all and Wolff uses words that I've never heard of and I don't know they are even in the dictionary (didn't care enough to check it), it's just another gimmick to sell a book
Well, makes as much or more sense as anything else out there. Not only is Trump portrayed as incompetent to be president, he doesn't even want to be president. A lot of "insider" info from Bannon, more than from Ivanka, Jared, Preibus, or Spicer. Kim Jung Un is only mentioned once in passing, when the book name's event happened. Lots of mentions of the pee-tape, though not explained, it's more of a wink-wink to those of us supposedly in the know.
