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.
