Not a must, unless you are a fan of the criminal who got elected. Ironically persons who are supporters of the white right will read this with glee, the rest of us will yawn and throw this angrily in the corner.

Fun--but trashy fun. I'm sure it will do the Enquirer proud.

Donald Trump is White Trash at it's upper crustiest, so there are really no surprises in Fire and Fury. True? Truthiness? Probably, but just because he's a grotesque caricature, none of it will depose a President of the United States.

Enjoy the folly (or catharsis). Then take 2020 more seriously.

386 (393 now just when I was ready to post this comment!) quotes in goodreads and more than two thousand readers left passionate reviews within six weeks of release :

In addition to the salacious and cut throat White House drama that were the main focus in the media, the book puts together a web of information showing how Trump's financial dealings were linked to the Russians and money laundering. As they say, follow the money. Also, recent expose of Trump and his porn star gave credence to accusers that Trump was no saint as a husband and a serial philanderer like Bill Clinton who likely drove away voters for Hillary in 2016. Again, $130,000 alleged to have changed hands ... follow the money.

I about half way through the book.. This is a must read for anyone who voted for trump thinking he has so much money he will work for the middle class to give back,, never going to happen.. Trump is a man who is all about Trump,fame, more money and more money for the very rich so they will like him. He is not about what is good for our people short term or long term.. The book gives a lot of back ground and insight into how our White House and why it is not working.. but then all one has to do is watch the news to see how dysfunctional the staff (mostly Trump kids) . The book gives insight into all the power plays in the White House.. Like Game of Thrones.. A must read.. I hope the people criticizing the book have read the book.

Michael Wolff has admitted that he took great liberties with the truth while writing this trash. Quoted sources were supposedly off the record, Bannon is bitter and vindictive. If you want a truthful account of the current administration, may I suggest reading "Trump Being Trump".

immigration reform? What does that mean? The president campaigned mostly to the "white race above" crowd, and his ideas of immigration can be summed up in two words- Whites Only.

Heard him on public radio comparing himself to Bob Woodward. He is not Bob Woodward. This book reads like it was not edited. His sentence structure is appalling and he averages two to three commas per sentence. It reads like a nasty People magazine so it will find its own readership. It would be a much better book if it HAD been written by Bob Woodward.

Why is the library buying 78 copies of a book that has no interest to me?

You don’t buy this many copies of many best sellers that would be of more interest and better reading. Who makes the decision to buy how many copies of a book and who Decides which books to buy?

So far the library has bought every trashy book that has come out against the president. Would you please stop buying so many copies of this trash!!!

Illustrated by this quote, don't believe everything you hear, read and sometimes see (Part 1 of 2):
“Do you condemn the actions of neo-Nazis? Do you condemn the actions of white supremacists?” Some ninety minutes later he stood in the Diplomatic Reception Room, his eyes locked on to the teleprompter, and delivered a six-minute statement.

Some ninety minutes later he stood in the Diplomatic Reception Room, his eyes locked on to the teleprompter, and delivered a six-minute statement. Before getting to the point: “Our economy is now strong. The stock market continues to hit record highs, unemployment is at a sixteen-year low, and businesses are more optimistic than ever before. Companies are moving back to the United States and bringing many thousands of jobs with them. We have already created over one million jobs since I took office.”

Illustrated by this quote, don't believe everything you hear, read and sometimes see (Part 2 of 2):

And only then: “We must love each other, show affection for each other and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry and violence. . . . We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. . . . Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

It was a reluctant mini-grovel. It was something of a restaging of the take-it-back birther speech about Obama during the campaign: much distraction and obfuscation, then a mumbled acknowledgment.
