Fear: Trump in the White House
Fear: Trump in the White House | Bob Woodward
THE INSIDE STORY ON PRESIDENT TRUMP, AS ONLY BOB WOODWARD CAN TELL IT With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump's White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence. Fear is the most intimate portrait of a sitting president ever published during the president's first years in office.

I read this because someone gave me a copy. It is so depressing. How someone with no idea about foreign policy, trade, defence or even the basics of how government works can be the President of the United States just makes me mad and sad. Not to mention his lack of integrity or attention to detail. A White House staffer is quoted in the book as saying ‘We are in crazy town‘. That really sums it up for me.

Interesting and informative. If you are keeping up to date with the news and typically follow politics, then a lot of the stories told in this book were already familiar. However this book did have so much extra background dialogue that gave more depth and understanding of the campaign and first portion of Trump's presidency.

sarahlandis Surprisingly, there were parts that reeeeally humanized Trump, Ivanka, Jared, Bannon, and other characters, and there were parts that really did the opposite as well. It was also so interesting how the stories the Woodward wrote about have already shifted so much just since this book was published three months ago. I can only imagine how much more in another 3 or 6 months 3y

It's crazy to believe that I've read this and it isn't fiction. I can't believe we live in the 21st century and this is the president. It's so unbelievably sad, but I will continue to stay informed on everything. #votehimout #44 #2019

Come-read-with-me @kricheal I had the same reaction - truth really is stranger than fiction these days. 3y
kricheal @Come-read-with-me I just so happened to be reading the chapters about the way Trump handled what happened in Charlottesville the same weekend of the mass shootings. The people in his inner circle then recognized he stoked racism and hatred. I don't mind political discourse, but this goes too far, he needs to be removed from office. 3y

I wonder who is the author's source? So far it seems to be(without saying so) Steve Bannon- but why? I still can't believe this guy is in charge of the country. 4y

I went into this book skeptical. It had be hard to read (or write) about events of the recent past when we are still dealing with the aftermath. And in many cases we still don‘t know how it will have effected our world. This book was a hard read and did not make me feel better about our political situation. But it was interesting. Like a car crash. Hard to look Away.

Meanders a bit and offers few conclusion, but gives good insight into the political operations of the Trump White House provided you're happy to draw your own conclusions from the described circumstances. Read this right after Fire & Fury and thought the two went together nicely to provide both a personal and a political insight into the administration.

Ok I girded myself, closed my eyes during the section on election night, and dived in. It is well researched, factual, non- hystrionic account of the Trump White House up through early 2018- We end when Mueller is just about to gear up. I am glad I read this- I now have a better grasp on the players, the Trump decision- making “process”( we need a 6th grade teacher as Chief of Staff apparently or a nun with a ruler). I want the sequel- impeachment

KathyWheeler I might read this — maybe — because I trust Bob Woodward to not be histrionic. 4y

This goes straight to lack of character, lack of empathy, lack of capable skills to do his job. A cowardly man who is willing to destroy the very foundations our country was build on, our democracy. Just to avoid being seen for what he truly is
A con, a cheat, a liar.
A creepy dictator in sheepskin.
A seal in a now bankrupt circus, who still cant balance a ball on his nose.

I struggled to get through this. I don‘t doubt Woodward‘s chops as a reporter, but his ability to tell a compelling story leaves a lot to be desired. Just an accounting of one damn thing after another. I learned that Trump does have a core — wanting to be strong and not be seen or treated as weak. Nothing else matters to him. Once you get that about him, his actions are comprehensible & predictable. Not sure he‘s evil so much as petty & deluded.

How can things be like they are portrayed in this book? The problem is that this makes Trump look very impulsive and reactionary. In the meantime he can formulate all the malevolent plans he desires.

BLECH! Trump and his administration come off sounding just as vulgar and ignorant as I already thought they all were. Though I wasn‘t shocked, I was caught off guard a few times at just how often his staff treated the president like a child, for example removing papers from his desk so he wouldn‘t sign away America‘s place in various trade deals against the advice of his cabinet. Glad I read it. The constant breaking news alerts make sense now.

This theme comes up few times, no matter how much data they present, no matter how many experts, or national security officials, or generals explain it...if he‘s believed it for years, they are just wrong.

AlaMich I marvel over and over at how his mind works. Or, more accurately, doesn‘t work. Does he believe everything he says or does he say things because he knows it provokes people?

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Laura317 That‘s ok, it‘s hard not to as we read political books... and yes, I completely agree. From this book I can see that he has trouble envisioning what might happen in the future based on his moves today. There‘s a section about him wanting to pull out of certain overseas agreements, like support to S Korea, because it‘s a waste of money, and the generals trying to explain to him that we more than get our money back because of the... 4y

Another part I found very interesting considering more recent developments:
In June 2017 MBS became the heir apparent, and MBN was removed from his positions
In November 2017 he was involved with the Jamal Khashoggi murder
Not to mention some pretty murky issues with Yemen and Qatar in there too.

So interesting that the family has friendships with and a back channel to MBS from the beginning.

So even from the very beginning, when none of it was being tied to him, and they are assuring him of that....this was his response.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @GingerAntics Oh I understand that, but you‘d think for someone living in New York his whole life, after 9-11, some of that would have sunk in 🤷‍♀️...

This book took me a VERY long time to get through....I pre-ordered it, started it as soon as I got it, read the first few chapters, put it down, and just couldn‘t bring myself to pick it up again... until last week. When the shutdown became the longest in history, and I thought I really should finish this book, try to glean some understanding of how we got here. Oddly it was much easier to read now, the current administration‘s emergency a day/..

Riveted_Reader_Melissa .../hour style made most of this book feel like ancient history already, and 99% of the people it references no longer work for the President, almost all citing irreconcilable differences of one sort or another with the man in charge. And that‘s my take away, which seems very apt this week, he‘s a very difficult man to work with, even for the people who work directly for him and are trying to help him. 4y

Way behind on my reviews, so it's going to be a few posts in a review. Took this with a pinch of salt, I am no fan of Trump but I am not sure how accurate it is and I think historians are going to unravelling his presidency long after he's dead. Nevertheless, this was a gripping, terrifying read.

Recently I discovered that a Blinkist subscription comes with a Scribd subscription.

I didn't want to read Fear, but listening to the Blinkist version is doable.

I think I will use Blinkist for nonfiction books that i am interested in, but not interested enough to invest time for the whole book.

Do any of you use the service and how do you like it?

LaLecture I‘ve read about Blinkinst but never thought about using it. But that‘s a great idea actually! Especially with this book. I think it would make me too mad to read it completely 😂. Also life is too short to read every book and some can be quite well shortened in such a summary, I guess. 4y

I was on board with most of this: Woodard certainly paints a revealing picture of an administration that is, if not surprising, one that fills in a lot of gaps in the news coverage. I had one big complaint though: too much dialogue. It's nothing if not colorful, but I feel like it distracts from the content of the discussions, which is more disturbing and where the conversation ought to be focused.

One person present said Mattis's message was clear: Stop fucking around with this. We're doing this because we've got to prevent World War III. This isn't some business gamble where if you happen to go bankrupt or whatever, it's not a big deal.
It seemed Mattis and others were at the end of their rope with the president. How are you possibly questioning these things that are obvious and so fundamental? (p 306)

Unfortunately these books were essential reading this year. They were often more helpful than the daily chaos he thrusts us into.
Fear & Russian Roulette are journalistic & well-supported.
Fire & Fury is more tabloid-ish, but all of it bears out thus far.
Unbelievable is a good refresher of the campaign.
Born Trump is illuminating.
If you can‘t take the daily news, try one of these to keep abreast of things.

Catching up on old reviews: Frightening & convincing. There's really not any new bombshells that haven't been revealed before or that the news has already covered but I really took to Woodward's descriptions of the players. I felt like I got to know the personalities and how they interacted with the other members of the administration but I dislike any moment in my life that makes me feel bad people I've come to loathe. That happened... a lot.

Reading this book makes your head spin. Had to read it a few chapters at a time until today when I decided to power through it (didn‘t want to carry it into 2019 with me). Are there any surprises? Honestly, the current administration is a leaky sieve & so the book itself wasn‘t too surprising. It‘s Woodward so it‘s readable but, as I said, recommended in small doses. The chaos & dysfunction & dislike main players have for each other is exhausting.
