#1 New York Times Bestseller
"What makes Fire and Fury important is that it is not just about Trump, but a product of the same culture that produced Trump: It is 'reality' journalism, in the same way that Trump is a 'reality' character." ―The Atlantic
"It is not a book. It is the book. If there is only one book Washington political reporters will read this year...then this is it.... [Wolff] is a wicked stylist and keen observer, with a justly earned reputation for approaching his subjects with fangs bared and talons sharpened.... A perfect karmic delivery system."―The Weekly Standard
"The pages of Wolff’s book are littered with insults and intrigue, backstabbing and dysfunction."―The Washington Post
"To the many ironies of Donald Trump’s presidency can be added the fact that a man who does not read books has helped cause a publishing sensation.... Mr Wolff’s muckraking skills, cattiness, cynicism and feel for human weakness, especially among the rich and famous, make him well-qualified for the job."―The Economist
"An undeniably juicy chronicle of a presidential administration that in just one year has been beset by numerous scandals and crises.... [Wolff] gives the reader a you-are-there sense of events without resorting to an unneeded dramatic writing style." ―The San Francisco Chronicle
"Wolff’s lasting achievement here is not his headline-grabbing revelations but the skillful, enthralling, and utterly terrifying way he depicts the unqualified, unprepared, and downright unusual characters to be found wandering the halls of the White House in the first half of 2017 as well as their near bloodsport-level conflicts." ―Entertainment Weekly
"What makes the book significant is its sly, hilarious portrait of a hollow man, into the black hole of whose needy, greedy ego the whole world has virtually vanished."―The Guardian
"The White House has naturally denied and decried Wolff's account, but even if it's only halfway accurate, it presents an appalling view of a frighteningly unqualified and unprepared gang that can't think straight."―Kirkus Reviews

Nothing in this book will surprise anyone who has been following the trials and tribulations of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. His supporters will cry foul, and say some of it isn't true -- and some of it might not be -- but if even 10% of what is in this book is true, holy crap!
Reading this book is like being forced to eat an entire 5 gallon carton of ice cream in one sitting. It is yummy and you don't want to stop. And then you do want to stop but you can't, because the book has you roped in. You should feel good, but in reality you feel awful, because of what you just did to yourself.
So tread lightly, dear reader. You won't want to put the book down, but you won't be better off for reading it, either. If you don't like it, do something productive -- stop eating the ice cream and get off the couch. Make America AMERICA again!
I was only five classes away from a second Bachelor's degree in political science. Never in my wildest dreams do I wish for somebody else to be President at this time. I was surprised in reading about Vice President Pence and his wing in the White House as being structured and functional in comparison to Trump.
Trump's illiteracy about government and politics is painfully obvious when he brought up Rosie O'Donnell in a Presidential debate. Trump is clueless about reality and the political world.
I don't know where Trump's presidency is headed for but this book paints a terrifying picture of an unstable ill-equipped man to handle it. He shouldn't have gotten the Republican nomination nor win the election. He didn't get alone. He had millions of enablers as voters who voted for him.
- Chris Christie had sent Jared Kushner's father to jail, so Trump reluctantly couldn't make him attorney general, or give him another job in the administration.
- Tony Blair told Trump that the British may have had the Trump campaign under surveillance, possibly requested by the Obama administration as they couldn't legally do it themselves. The author thinks Blair was just trying to appear useful.
- In the Rupert Murdoch divorce from Wendi Deng, Wendi got the Trumps. She and Ivanka were BFFs from when the Murdochs lived in Trump Tower. During the divorce, Murdoch said Wendi had an affair with Tony Blair.
- The Trump team met with the Russians, and then denied it when it became a problem. Steve Bannon was shocked that they'd met them directly and not through a chain of lawyers.
The book talks about how the Trump team never thought they'd actually win, and as a result they weren't terribly presidential while campaigning. "Leaking" real and unreal stories to the press is done by everyone, and is a common way that the revolutionary Bannon, the opportunistic Kushner/Ivanka, and the Washington careerists fight with each other.
I liked the author's description of Ivanka as Trump's effective wife and Hope Hicks as his effective daughter.
The book does not analyze the Trump presidency, but it's a good reporting of what happened. To be honest, the book does not say much that will surprise readers currently living in the US, and I often read 30 to 50 pages before coming across something interesting. I wouldn't recommend it for this reason. It's a good record for future readers though.
