Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House (Hardback)Michael Wolff (author)
The book that blew the first whistle on the Trump administration. Punchy, unbridled, damning: this firecracker exposé couldn’t be more explosive if it were written in gunpowder.
'Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book.' - Donald Trump
Few books we can remember have had the instantly seismic impact of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury. From midnight bookshop queues in Washington DC to unprecedented interest here in the UK, Wolff’s systematic takedown of the White House’s current administration has been widely received as a below-the-waterline blow to the ongoing ability of Donald Trump to remain president of the United States.
'I think one of the interesting effects of the book so far is a very clear ‘emperor has no clothes’ effect,' Wolff commented. 'The story that I have told seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can’t do his job.'
Whether it is disturbing revelations of Trump’s motives around running for office, worries around his mental health or former chief strategist Steve Barron’s assertions toward treason, every page is a catalogue of incident that has sent the world’s media reeling.
With a real sense of urgency and ready wit, Wolff (the journalist behind the previous Rupert Murdoch exposé The Man Who Owns the News) proves himself a brilliantly able chronicler of an administration in apparent internecine crisis.
'His stability,' commented Carl Bernstein, co-author of All the President's Men. 'That’s really what this book is about.'

“Simply terrifying ”
I wanted to read this and think, maybe it's not all that bad. Maybe Trump is a bit mis-understood but generally a good guy. After finishing this it frightened me I'll admit. So much research and insight
“A page turner ”
Well written exposé of the Trump White House. True? Fake? I have no way of knowing. But NOTHING in it seems out of character and even if it’s only 10% true: it’s a story to be told. Can’t wait for the film. John... More
