Publisher's Summary

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 expected to be shocked

I expected to be shocked, but alas, I was not.
I was surprised though.
Things have gone too far for me to be shocked anymore, but this book was full of shocking revelations. Its a good read, and I recommend it for Canadians and Americans alike.
I trust Bob Woodward, so every word is credible.
I would have liked a bit more of Bob in the book... as it is, his 'voice' shows up every few chapters.
My only disappointment was that it cut off a few months ago ~ it had to, or he's never be able publish it otherwise ~ but I hope he is hard at work on Fear 2.
If you think Trump is an idiot, your belief shall be confirmed.
If you don't think Trump is an idiot, wake up and read this.

I couldn't stop listening. sounds just about correct when you compare the news footage to Bob's account.

Excellent new perspective

While this book has a lot in common with Fiee and Fury and Trumpocracy, I really liked the way that this book takes you inside individual meetings and conversations in the White House and shows the decision making process (??) that seems to exist there --in a way it is much as I would have expected, but very exciting and interesting to get brought into the meetings and discussions that are happening and watching how decisions get made in this crazy White House. a very worthwhile though somewhat frightening read.

Unfinished symphony

Very well written. Much detail. Thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. Robert Petkoff is a wonderful narrator. Mr Woodward a true master. I think he should continue to delve into the dark business and keep "reporting" on the Trump White House until Trump is finished. I find myself clamouring for more and poufff it's all finished. Please Mr. Woodward, more please?
I am looking forward to reading more of his books.

Worth the Credit

I wasn't too sure about this for the first quarter. It seemed like it was just going to be more of what we hear on the news every night. As I got a little deeper into the book the subject matter became much deeper and I became quite engrossed. It is a very interesting look at what is going on behind the scenes. #Audible1
