Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House Reviews
Lots of fun, except it's not. Reads like a parody, except it's not. *Dies*
Wolff is a lively raconteur, to say the least. "Sardonic" is just the beginning for him. Overall this was an enjoyable read, if reading about how low your country can go could ever be considered enjoyable. But hey I'm not a big fan of the world in general, so I will find my pleasures where I can.
I pretty much read this like I read fiction because that's the most enjoyable way for me to read nonfiction. Did the story capti ...more

This book doesn't challenge your assumptions. If it is to be believed, the day-to-day functioning of Trump’s White House appears to be simultaneously worse than we all imagined, and exactly as we all thought it probably was: Trump’s an idiot, the least self-aware person alive, interested only in his own celebrity and validation, and wholly unqualified to be the President of anything. Everyone around him is 1) Trying to save face. 2) Pushing their competing agendas. 3) Making fun ...more
I will have such revenges on you both
That all the world shall—I will do such things—
What they are yet I know not, but they shall be
The terrors of the earth. You think I’ll weep?
No, I’ll not weep.
-King Lear, Act II, Scene IV
Look, forget the myths the media's created about the White House. The truth is, these are not very bright guys, and things got out of hand.
-All The Presidents' Men (1976)
In short: this is an internal history of the Trump Administration, as largely told by the former Chief Stra ...more
I never planned on reading this. But now that Donald Trump is trying to prevent its release, it's now the highest priority on my reading list.
An ok read but I feel this is a book that has been hugely hyped by the media and certainly not the explosive read it has been labelled.
This book has been described as an explosive and shocking insight into life within the White House since Donald Trump became Presisent of the United States. I wanted to read this book as Ireland has a close and important relationship with America and decisions made in the While House not only affect the United States and its citizens but the rest of the World w ...more
This book was hilarious and terrifying and confirmed pretty much everything most of us have suspected about the incompetence of the Trump administration. If even half of this book is true, well, this presidency is a disaster.
The strangest part of this book is Wolf’s unabashed affection for Steve Bannon. Like, dude, get a room.
Also this book is sloppy and needs to be edited.
The day Trump was elected President of the USA the world let out a collective gasp, a gasp of absolute horror as the unbelievable actually happened: an unqualified misogynistic climate change denier became one of the most powerful men in the world. I remember walking into work that evening and the atmosphere was utterly dead. Nobody knew quite what to say as even in England we were dismayed and horror struck: we were numb.
A strong degree of uncertainty and tension spread over the world. We all ...more
