Author Michael Wolff's newest book in his Donald Trump series, is called "Siege: Trump Under Fire". It is basically the story of President Trump's second year in office, beginning February 1, 2017. Wolff's first book, "Fire and Fury" was the accounting of Trump's campaign and first year in office. And as with the first book, if you're a Donald Trump fan, you won't like the second.
A book review on Amazon is supposed to focus less on the material than on the writing style and impact the book can make on those who read it. I received an early copy of the book, and it really is quite interesting. As a work of non-fiction, I can only hope that Michael Wolff is right in both his facts and his interpretation of those facts. He's already been called out on some basic facts about the Mueller Report; his critics say Wolff "couldn't have possibly known that". Certainly the Mueller Report is covered as much as possible in Wolff's book. But what about the others mentioned in the book? For instance, while Michael Wolff tries to name names and square the circles, he never really states what Hope Hicks did for Trump. Hints are put out, but they're really too thin to discern the truth from.
Among the others who riding around in Trump's orbit are Putin, Paul Manafort (and his growing legal woes), Rudy Giuliani, and John McCain, who, even in death managed to bedevil Donald Trump. A few members from the cast of "Trump: The First Year" are back in "Siege", including Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, Michael Flynn, and Rex Tillerson, among them. But Year Two and Book Two are as interesting as Year One and Book One.
Fans of President Trump are going to accuse Michael Wolff (and me) of writing "fake news", but I really think Michael Wolff has a pretty good read on the second year of the Trump Administration.
