Publisher's Summary

Michael Wolff, author of the bombshell best seller Fire and Fury, once again takes us inside the Trump presidency to reveal a White House under siege.

With Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in Siege, he has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side. A stunningly fresh narrative that begins just as Trump’s second year as president is getting underway and ends with the delivery of the Mueller Report, Siege reveals an administration that is perpetually beleaguered by investigations and a president who is increasingly volatile, erratic, and exposed.

How can so much scandal be packed into one year?

I was aware of all the things that have happened - but what is so sad in today's society is that we just move on. I truly was shocked that I had somehow put out of my mind the mirade scandals which have taken place and would have tanked any other presiden'ts presidency. We are living in a reality show.

I found the book a little Bannon-heavy - but overall very entertaining.

Great juicy follow up to Fire and Fury

The content was another fine French meal, albeit with a little too much sauce. The narrator was great--injecting real and appropriate emotion. I hope more of America tires of the grifters at the top.

Read the Mueller Report first...

...then re-read Fire and Fury, THEN delve into this one. I read Wolff's first book on Trump with a grain of salt, having heard the criticism that he included too many direct quotes to be perfectly credible. After reading Mueller's report, much of what Wolff claimed was bourne out.
A great read, if you aren't totally fatigued by this circus administration.

🎶🎶 American Top Tell-All 🎶🎶

I eat this sort of stuff up, so I loved this book. BUT the best part is Holter Graham's performance.

Graham not only does a great job breathing life into the quotes (with the rule-proving exception of the Kissinger parts, which are a little flat even for Kissinger), but his voice is often reminiscent of American vocal treasure and dearly departed pop radio DJ: Casey Kasem.

What a delight to spend hours ear-gorging on the tortured incompetence and warped psychology of Donald Trump, while occasionally hearing a vocal styling that suggests a long distance request is queued up on the turntable, ready to go out over the airwaves to light the heart of someone special.

Giggle-thrill! Giggle-thrill! Giggle-thrill!

Compelling if not terrifying

This book almost reads like fiction it’s so insane in its descriptions. I find it quite scary that, if even half of the character and personality flaws and even lack of general humanity is true... well the damage that can be done is extreme.

I laughed till I cried. Then I continued crying.

This is more like a interview with Steve Bannon who seems to be the only person on record. Donald Trump doesn't have a friend in the world but he does have a lot of support. His lies which seemed to be a stream that constantly runs in his head, gurgle out continually in his tweets are fueled by those who work him. I'm afraid we are doomed as a nation, only Mitch McConnell scares me more than Donald Trump.

Wanted more...

This is well researched & gives evidence to speculation that Trump is unfit to be president. Mr Wolf proves Trump & family are as vicious & selfish as they act.

Interesting but not for the reasons you think!

I assumed that in this book Wolff would follow the same furrow of tabloid gossip he plowed in Fire & Fury. The tidbits of gossip are scattered throughout the work but it’s really a very different exposé. The Resistance can find plenty of evidence of Trump’s madness, stupidity and greed uncovered during his two years. The Administration is shown to be as chaotic as expected and filled with even more liars, thieves and fools than we thought. Whether Wolff’s sources are completely accurate or accurately quoted or not, the reader can taste the Special Sauce and Aroma of Trumpworld.

But the essence of Siege is elsewhere. The title itself is a distraction. This book was “dictated” by Steve Bannon. Every page is filled with Bannon’s take on each event and decision of the first two years and Bannon’s take is almost never positive. Trump is nothing but a tool for Bannon’s Populist Vision of Armageddon. Trump’s greed, duplicity, narcissism and stupidity was ruining his Dream and he is vicious in his anger and frustration.

This is the real value of the book. Not the crazy quotes and revelations of insecurity, fear and lust but rather a peek inside the fearsome Bannon Worldview. Americans should understand this view and fear it.

As we should have come to understand since 2015, Trump is only a distraction, a batshit crazy, narcissistic sociopathic distraction, but a distraction nonetheless. He’s not the greatest danger. The Destruction of Liberal Democracy of the type planned by Bannon is the greater peril.

Important.

It’s a roller coaster ride. Sometimes, the reader / listener really feels sorry for the children, in particular Baron, and Melania.

In general, not too much news for me. Instead, I feel the Russian part and the greater picture of the agenda, gets downplayed (or the author just doesn’t know all details).

It’s an important read though and of great value.

Trump exposed.

Very well written. Surprisingly current and genuinely alarming. Well researched while exposing a man sitting in the oval office who has
extremely serious problems!

West Wing Wolff

Michael Wolff has presented a piece of work that will give an insight as to how sick this pResidency of Donnie Trump truly is. It is frightening seeing that this is not a book of fiction but a chronicle of the most vile pResident in the short history of these United States. An alternate title could be “One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest” ll

Think of it as gonzo

Much has been made of the dubious sourcing of Wolff’s books, but it reminds me of Hunter S. Thompson’s best reporting. The facts may be off here or there, but the story rings true. It is a great time capsule; in twenty years, we will be able to return to this to remember what 2018 felt like.
