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.

What made the experience of listening to Fire and Fury the most enjoyable?

It's the curtain-opening moment showing in great detail that the emperor not only has no clothes, but barely even understand he is emperor.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fire and Fury?

The McDonalds Revelation

What about Michael Wolff and Holter Graham ’s performance did you like?

Wolff has recorded these conversations, so you can hear the distinctly Trumpesque or "Bannon-ese" nature of all quotes in the book.

Any additional comments?

It reads like fan fiction about the White House, which is great fun at first, but then you remember "this all actually happened", and it's a bit terrifying. We now have a clear, referenced exposé of how this so-called "draining the swamp" ironically consisted of dumping 1000s of tons of toxic waste right back in, then letting it sit stagnant because the Command-in-Chief doesn't even want to be there in the first place.
