Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER
THE OBSERVER BOOK OF THE YEAR

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


'I think you’ve always been fair.' President Donald J. Trump, in a call to Bob Woodward, August 14, 2018

'The sheer weight of anecdotes depicts a man with no empathy and a pathological capacity for lying.' - The Financial Times

'Fuelling his narrative is an astonishing cast of rogues, ideologues, self-made millionaires and men in uniform who have spent the past two years in and out of Trump's administration.' - The Sunday Times

'Woodward’s meticulous account of office intrigues, the president’s men don’t seem to be trembling with fright.  What they mostly feel is contempt for Trump or pity for his ignorance and the “teenage logic” of his obsessively vented grievances.' - The Observer

'Horribly fascinating. Strongly recommended. If you can bear it.' Richard Dawkins

'To me the standout message from the book...is that the president is a bit clueless, a bit vain, a bit dangerous even; but his people are utterly at sea…’ - Justin Webb, The Times

'He is the master and I'd trust him over politicians of either party any day of the week.' Peter Baker, New York Times
 
'His work has been factually unassailable . . . In an age of ‘alternative facts’ and corrosive tweets about ‘fake news,’ Woodward is truth’s gold standard.' - Jill Abramson, The Washington Post

'Fear depicts a White House awash in dysfunction, where the Lord of the Flies is the closest thing to an owner's manual.' The Guardian

'I wonder how many journalists have arrived in Washington over the years dreaming of becoming the next Bob Woodward . . . Though his books are often sensational, he is the opposite of sensationalist. He’s diligent, rigorous, fastidious about the facts, and studiously ethical. There’s something almost monastic about his method . . . He’s Washington's chronicler in chief.'   Nick Bryant, BBC

'I’ve been on the receiving end of a Bob Woodward book. There were quotes in it I didn’t like. But never onceneverdid I think Woodward made it up. Anonymous sources have looser lips and may take liberties. But Woodward always plays is straight. Someone told it to him.' Ari Fleisher, White House Press Secretary for George W. Bush

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. 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.

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

  • Very Good Read.

    I downloaded this book from Apple just a few days after it was released so it took me about 3 months to complete. I found it a real eye-opener on what life is really like in the Trump White House and I don’t doubt one single word written by Bob Woodward. Anyone who is unsure about buying it should take my advice and go ahead and complete the purchase as you will never put it away until you get it finished. A 100% brilliant read on Donald Trump’s presidency.
  • Poorly constructed.

    I persevered as far as possible but as a read this really was tough going. The style was such that it simply comes across as small sound bites of heresay which was not what I expected. Possibly a rush job to capitalise on Trump’s presidency (or lack of) but all in all just poor fare from a journalist of such renown

    This book is NOT fake news, it’s based on accurate reporting and is as close a version of the truth we are likely to get of this dysfunctional White House.

    great read with detailed perspective. i’m now left wondering what is really going to happen next with this investigation! Mueller knows something and the mighty Dowd couldn’t figure out what it was!,
