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).
Bob Woodward is an associate editor at The Washington Post, where he has worked for forty-seven years. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first for the Post’s coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein, and second in 2003 as the lead reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He has authored or coauthored eighteen books, all of which have been national nonfiction bestsellers. Twelve of those have been #1 national bestsellers.
