“Explosive.”—The Washington Post
“Devastating.”—The New Yorker


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.

    Sometimes reporters investigate, gather facts, and tell a story. Woodward opts to just let a handful of sources blather out their hero stories, without much analysis. So John Dowd wanted a vehicle to poor-mouth Mueller and make his case that Trump has done nothing wrong - but just is amply a serial liar. There is no other voices to assess Dowd’s coarse legal analysis. Woodward just recites it, including every Trump gush about what a great lawyer Dowd is. Even the example Dowd gives of the former Galleon hedge Fund manager who was a poor witness goes by without acknowledgement that Raj was a sleazy inside trader and a Dowd failed spectacularly at trial. The Dowd chapters are but a plant by a Dowd to brag and serve his client while demeaning Mueller - who won’t leak to defend himself. Trump must have approved of Dowd sharing the leaked conversations between he and Trumo, lest Dowd would be facing serious ethical consequences. Woodward got used, and so did I buying this recitation of Trump insiders who found a willing transcriber of their self-serving soliloquies.

    Another well written book my acclaimed author Bob Woodward. I must admit, I found it difficult to put this book down. Fascinating what happens behind the scenes and the chaotic situation unfolding in the White House. Thank you Bob for asking the tough questions.

  • Fear is understated

    By stanlochrie
    Each page is a revelation! If you don’t read this book, you are not seeing how the USA can be ruined by a very small group of people and a narcissist. The people around Trump should be ashamed and history will treat them VERY poorly.

    Woodward sets you in the middle of the scene like a fly on the wall. This is legitimate journalism at its best.
