#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!
That being said...when I found that this work had been put on the “Trumpster Index Expurgatorius....well I had to purchase it and read it despite my distaste for this sort of work. I wondered why this man(?) so badly wanted to stop this books publication...what did he want to hide?
I, like many others here take works such as this with a grain of salt. But I will tell you that if even a small fraction of the information presented here is true (and I have no doubt it is) then it makes my blood run cold. Now I am not one of those who feel that the circus which is Trump will bring down our nation. Hey, we survived bad apples before such as Harding, Andrew Johnson, Pierce, Fillmore, Garfield, et al and of course we will NOT be able to fully assess Trumps impact upon our nation for at least fifty or seventy five years from now, but even leaving out the information in this book it is becoming pretty obvious where Trumps place in history will land.
The book is written in a chatty way (something I dislike) but the information I found pretty well covered most of the events as we have all seen played out over the past year or so. I had no reason to doubt much of the information presented here.
I do feel that the author probably placed too much of his own “spin” on some of the facts but most readers will be able to spot this quite quickly and make up their own mind.
I suspect that over the next decade or so we will see a plethora of books addressing this administration and this clown written by insiders and political pundits. This is good because as I write this review so much more has been discovered and by all signs there will be much more to come. I am glad I forked out the few dollars as I was at least (in a goulash way) entertained as I read it and I must admit rather frightened.
Those who are Trumpsters will, if they even read the book, will not be pleased. For the other 65 percent plus of the voter population...well, they probably will get a kick out of it.
It's important to note that Wolff has a reputation of being a somewhat sloppy reporter, not always reliable. It's also important, though, to note that no one mentioned in this book has denied saying what he attributes to them in this book. There are disagreements over interpretation, but not over what they said. Other reporters, with better reputations, as well as other people with access, say that while there may be inaccuracies of detail, the overall account rings true.
Steve Bannon, now out of the White House, and indeed having further torched his standing with his failed support of Roy Moore's campaign for the US Senate in Alabama, was his main point of entry to the White House and apparently his major source. That's a possible source of bias in the gloss that gets put on the facts.
Overall, this is an alarming picture of a White House in chaos. It's fascinating, revealing, and scary. It needs to be taken with a few grains of salt, and compared with other accounts and reporting as they become available. Nevertheless, it's an important contribution to understanding what is going on in our government and why.
