Bob Woodward to is a true journalist. I appreciated his questions and the detail he revealed that none of the other books I’ve read about this President or this administration have revealed. I also appreciated the way the book is written.…

Well done but not what I consider the best of his books. Very thorough.

Well written, and very thorough, just confirmed everything that has been reported over the last 4 years. Incredible to see it actually in print. Its my belief this book should be studied in schools. History has definitely been changed…

I only wish every Republican would read this book. We know that Bob Woodward has written books in the past, and he diligently researches, plans before he puts it in print. Yes it Is subjective, but he is a trusted historian journalist. …

Bob Woodward has written a book about a politician that largely avoids politics and focuses instead on personality and leadership ability, for which he gives Trump failing marks. I'm grateful that there were so many bright, competent,…

“Trump once flirted with white nationalism. Now it’s a centerpiece of his White House. Modern presidents have rejected white nationalism, but Trump has advanced its agenda.” by Sean Collins, posted Jul 21, 2020, at Vox…

This was an interesting read as Woodward tries to keep his balance as he chronicles Trump's time in the White House. The book starts off well, but Woodward noticeably tires in the fourth quarter. There are some fascinating interactions…

CIA asset Woodward is at it again! Although not a fan of Trump, I realize that he has disrupted the Rockefeller Plan -- the Wall Street-directed communist takeover of America! America's China Class, established over the decades since 1973…

You guys ever feel weird when the eggplant emoji whispers esoteric soliloquies about tax reform into your ear?

The last sentence sums it up. "When his performance as president is taken in its entirety, I can only reach one conclusion: Trump is the wrong man for the job."

Reading Trump' words in print show how unfocused and rambling his mind is. As someone said, his attention span is a minus number. How sad.,

The Trump presidency was a horrific stain on our democracy.

One common word comes up in many reviews for this book: exhausting. This is how I felt while reading it--not because of Bob, but because of the unbelievable things I was reading about. Many "damning" facts are brought up throughout this…

This one was a bit exhausting. Woodward's recounting of his conversations with Trump portray the conversation with a thoughtful journalist and a brick wall.

Bob Woodward has written another balanced, heavily researched and documented book, this time focused on the Trump presidency. He provides numerous direct quotes, possible because of his history and reputation for fairness and the fact that…

Excellent as usual when it comes to one of Woodward's books. He gives a fair and accurate assessment of his subjects, in this case Donald Trump. Where possible he tells both sides of the story and gives credit to Trump where it is due. …

Woodward continues to excel in taking a person or issue and turning it into fact-based reporting. The body of work consists of interviews with Trump on the matters that will define his presidency, and it's word-for-word dialogue. I'd have…

Well written, easy to read. It surprised me to contain a history of covid. He clearly has interviewed Dr.s Fauchi and Redfield. Bob Woodward digs for the facts, corroborates them and knows how to write well. His long history…

Woodward started and continued his career in the Intelligence community. This is an extension of the directive that he works under. Regardless of the topic at hand one must appreciate the role that he serves.

Great book, probably will be studied by political science/public policy students on how not to handle a pandemic. Woodward is a little dry, like always, but the reporting is great. Vote!

Are you kidding ? NO. Kindle copies ordered? Shame on you. Reading it as an epub on my tablet. Great book.
