    Spoiler: Donald Trump is incompetent and misogynistic. Surprise!Well, I couldn’t help myself, could I? This book is causing such a stir that I just had to read it. I can't let that controversial bandwagon just pass me by. Having read it, though, I have to say I'm surprised that it's causing such a stir at all. There's very little here that people don't already know about Trump, Bannon, Kushner and Russia.I guess maybe I can see the value in put...

    If this book is to be believed, the day-to-day functioning of Trump’s White House appears to be simultaneously worse than we all imagined, and exactly as we all thought it probably was: Trump’s an idiot, the least self-aware person alive, interested only in his own celebrity and validation, and wholly unqualified to be the President of anything. Everyone around him is 1) Trying to save face. 2) Pushing their competing agendas. 3) Making fun o...

    Kinetic, trashy, slapdash, and completely addictive. Wolff's prose is uneven but he is very good at keeping the eye moving across the page, and in this he is perhaps helped by the book's failing: this is very padded out with stuff we already know (the long profiles of Kushner, Bannon, and Conway have no revelations in them.) But the gossip is gold, though the depictions of the characters have an unfortunate tendency toward lazy meanness. I don't ...

You think I’ll weep?No, I’ll not weep.-King Lear, Act II, Scene IVLook, forget the myths the media's created about the White House. The truth is, these are not very bright guys, and things got out of hand.-All The Presidents' Men (1976)In short: this is an internal history of the Trum...

    **Knock knock** Uh… hello? Mr. *president? I’m sorry to just walk in to the oval office, but no one was at the desk and the door was wide open. Should that be?Trump: “Yeah, I have trouble finding people willing to work for me, so I just leave the door open and let people wander in. Who are you? I hope you’re not from CNN.”“No sir. My name is Michael Wolff, I’m an author and I want to write a book about you, your administration, and ...

    Lots of fun, except it's not. Reads like a parody, except it's not. *Dies* Wolff is a lively raconteur, to say the least. "Sardonic" is just the beginning for him. Overall this was an enjoyable read, if reading about how low your country can go could ever be considered enjoyable. But hey I'm not a big fan of the world in general, so I will find my pleasures where I can.I pretty much read this like I read fiction because that's the most enjoyable ...
