Summary

The first nine months of Donald Trump's term were stormy, outrageous - and absolutely mesmerising. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, best-selling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself.

In this explosive audiobook, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations:

  • What President Trump's staff really thinks of him
  • What inspired Trump to claim he was wiretapped by President Obama
  • Why FBI director James Comey was really fired
  • Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn't be in the same room
  • Who is really directing the Trump administration's strategy in the wake of Bannon's firing
  • What the secret to communicating with Trump is
  • What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers

Never before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.

A Whirl of Staff and Ideas

We in Europe feel strongly about American presidencies, perhaps because of their habit of declaring themselves the leaders of the free world. “Not of us!” we often want to cry. Obama was called the best American president Europe ever had; and conversely many of us heard about the election of DJT with horrified dismay. I wanted “Fire and Fury” to untangle the events of 2016 & 2017 and show some kind of comprehensible narrative arc. In the first few chapters, and the epilogue it has done that to some extent, so well done. The trouble is the context, the weather, the hollow-centred battering randomness of Trump’s White House. Not Michael Wolff’s fault obviously, but it’s frustrating. And then there’s trust: what’s Wolff’s agenda? One or two important questions go unanswered. Despite all that I would heartily recommend this book, it’s full of surprising, interesting,significant, sometimes funny revelations.

Over the top?

I am English so that may colour how I see this, but I thought the material could have been dealt with in a more measured way and less sensational. Surely the facts of this presidency and how it came about speak loudly enough? I found the reader to be very bombsstic and I would’ve appreciated a more subtle, and analytical approach. I get that The book will sell for its summary of deeply worrying, bordering on outrageous actions and decisions of this White House and the apparently inside experience of the author as he watched some of this in person but dialling it back 30% would have made it more palatable to listen to.

uncontrolled splattering about idiocracy

Although I think really low from the subject (s) of the book and I can imagine most of the information is accurate enough I couldn't finish this book as it's just an uncontrolled, unstructured poop splatter. Found it really hard to focus on and very off putting.

Wowsers..... if only this weren't a true story!

Well read, astonishing account of life in the most powerful administration on the planet..... I wasn't a fan of trump before (putting it lightly) so this has only reaffirmed my belief that he's a 'total loser' to use his terminology.

worth the read! - or listen!

Compelling reads like a thriller

I found this book so interesting filling in shocking detail as a fly on the wall of the on going sage of what will doubtlessly be recorded in history as a turning point in human civilisation and culture from democracy to who knows where...

Interesting story/ Compelling read

Interesting read! Raises renewed concern about fitness for purpose of Trump administration. If purely fact based, modern world is in trouble. 👌👌

Nothing new nor insightful

I’m not that avid a follower of the news nor of Trump news, but there’s nothing in here you won’t already know from watching the odd Vox video. It paints Trump as inept and his staff as inept. It’s nothing you didn’t already know. It seems full of “interesting sources” and cool quotes, but they aren’t illuminating in the slightest.

Wild house

Interesting, would of been cool to see a 2nd book about it after Steven Bannon’s departure like maybe about Rex Tillerson’s firing and more about the campaign. Interesting points thought

Noting new here!

This book was really just a rehash of stories that anyone could have known had they followed the news closely. There wasn't any new discoveries, analysis or revelations. This is not an investigative expose, it reads more like gossip than political analysis or investigative journalism. The narration was irritating.

True? Who knows. Entertaining? Most definitely!!

Fascinating tale of how the Trump administration works. Veracity can be at times a little bent, but in general, we get a sense that all of what is described happened in one way or another.

the emperor has no clothes

High-minded people may say we do not need to know about the president's eating habits and peccadillos to understand the political dynamics of the Trump presidency. True, but few of us are not fascinated by the chaos, lunacy, sheet incompetence and back stabbing that goes on behind closed doors. Well done, Michael Wolff. We already knew the emperor has no clothes, but in these difficult and dangerous times it is helpful not only to have a journalist shout this out repeatedly but to point in forensic detail at what the nakedness exposes.

fun to listen to Trump the idiot<br />

the book reinforces how utterly ridiculous and stupid Trump is. possibly one of the worst leaders of any country ever. the big problem with the book is that it repeats itself a lot. but you do get reminded of so many pathetic Trump things!

Couldn't stop listening

Insightful and cleverly written. Must for anyone interested in politics. Frightening but not surprising given the personalities involved.
