Review: Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff

2.5 stars for Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff.

The United States of America is in deep political trouble and is worse than we can imagine. How does a man who knows nothing other than perhaps building construction become the President of the country?

Fire and Fury is a good read if you are looking for a chronological order of what has happened in the Trump's candidacy right up to Trump's administration in the first two hundred over days.

There are certainly interesting news which has not been made available to the man on the street during the Trump's presidency. This book is after all about how news of the inner workings of the White House go into free circulation and how a group of people struggle, each in their own way, to come to terms with the meaning of working for Donald Trump.

All things considered, this book only manages to capture my full attention for the first half, after which, with the worsening in appearance and disappearance of characters and continued discontinuity of narratives, I find it so chaotic and confusing that I simply skim through the rest.

With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country — and the world — has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief.

This riveting and explosive account of Trump’s administration provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office, including:
-- What President Trump’s staff really thinks of him
-- What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama
-- Why FBI director James Comey was really fired
-- Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t be in the same room
-- Who is really directing the Trump administration’s strategy in the wake of Bannon’s firing
-- What the secret to communicating with Trump is
-- What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers

Never before in history has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.
