Publisher's Summary

The first nine months of Donald Trump's term were stormy, outrageous - and absolutely mesmerising. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, best-selling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself.

In this explosive audiobook, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations:

  • What President Trump's staff really thinks of him
  • What inspired Trump to claim he was wiretapped 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 has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.

Noting new here!

This book was really just a rehash of stories that anyone could have known had they followed the news closely. There wasn't any new discoveries, analysis or revelations. This is not an investigative expose, it reads more like gossip than political analysis or investigative journalism. The narration was irritating.

True? Who knows. Entertaining? Most definitely!!

Fascinating tale of how the Trump administration works. Veracity can be at times a little bent, but in general, we get a sense that all of what is described happened in one way or another.

fun to listen to Trump the idiot<br />

the book reinforces how utterly ridiculous and stupid Trump is. possibly one of the worst leaders of any country ever. the big problem with the book is that it repeats itself a lot. but you do get reminded of so many pathetic Trump things!

Interesting narrative. Can't wait to see see the sequel. It's a story we'll told. It feels like a reality show rather than reality.

Over the top?

I am English so that may colour how I see this, but I thought the material could have been dealt with in a more measured way and less sensational. Surely the facts of this presidency and how it came about speak loudly enough? I found the reader to be very bombsstic and I would’ve appreciated a more subtle, and analytical approach. I get that The book will sell for its summary of deeply worrying, bordering on outrageous actions and decisions of this White House and the apparently inside experience of the author as he watched some of this in person but dialling it back 30% would have made it more palatable to listen to.

Entertaining tabloid gossip

If you despise Trump, this will keep you entertained. But this is no worthy, carefully crafted political opus: it’s nine hours of gossip. Nothing more.

Boring and repetitive. (but interesting in places)

There's quite a few interesting bits tied up in hours and hours of tedious drivel. Many of the key parts have already been summarised and spread all over the media.

A surprisingly even handed review of Trump<br /><br />

Not what I was expecting it gave credit to Trump where due not a hatchet job
A good performance and we'll written book, of course when you finish it it is very hard to sleep with the thought that someone as stupid as Trump has his finger on the nuclear button.
It was a difficult listen because each day into his reign Trump became more demented..

You couldn’t make it up!

A gripping account of the first year of DT as POTUS.
The in fighting, lack of ability to govern,the President’s own personality - narcissistic,
Petulant, malicious, impulsive and down right stupid, made me read it with growing disbelief. How had this ‘childish’ self centred man totally unqualified for the office he holds, ever risen to this position.
I liked the narrator’s delivery hinting at DT’s own voice without mimicry.

Confirmation that empire is burning


In the book they repeat Trump's speech to the CIA officers, the comment at the end was "that is some weird s**t", it is a very unintentionally funny book, thank god I read it while I was alone because I burst out laughing every few minutes, it is just nuts, surreal, dilutional. The end of an empire: Nero burning Rome while looking for the ratings it would get him in the media.

Trump is the decadence of the West personified, also a reflection of the mentality of the American public, the book is a document of how low the standard of education is, the most powerful country in the world represented by a reality TV celebrity. You could not make this s**t up.

He and his hordes of the brain dead will not read this book nor can they fathom the damage they have inflicted on all kinds of institutions by declaring reality fake if they do not like the answer, this is the bully of the class taking control of the curriculum, the problem is he has power over nuclear weapons and does not understand the consequences of his ignorance.
This is not a political book but a historical account of the idiocracy taking over, while we debate how many genders a person can have and how to be more tolerant of the intolerant; the end did not come in dressed as a tyrant but as an orange senile clown.

Biased, untrustworthy, yet insightful.

If you are looking to this book as an acurate history of the first year of the trump white house you maybe disappointed if you fact check it all, however it does give an insight into the turmoil that is 45's administration and the problems it has.

House of Cards

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

The narrator was perfect for this book.

What did you like best about this story?

It reads like the best episodes of "House of Cards".
This book is not a heavy weight political tome. It's a fast paced, entertaining read rather than a meticulously researched piece of journalism. However if only part of it is true, it doesn't seem to matter, Trump has made telling the truth irrelevant; the fact that he tried hard to stop it's release makes it so more believable. We've all seen the news, this book adds background and context to events we already know happened.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh and it made me afraid. Real people voted for this moron and those with the power to call time on his ridiculous presidency aren't doing it.

Madness

I bought this quickly incase for whatever reason it was pulled from the world. Anyway, having listened to the hard to believe first few hours I ended up listening to 10 mores just so the madness would end. It's a crazy fact/fiction (who knows) that scares me. If was American I'd find this hard not to purchase in some form.

Steve Bannon's Revenge!!!

I liked the first half of the book. For me, it was entertaining notwithstanding the fact that it did not have any significant new revelations about Trump administration which had not been exposed beforehand. However, in the second half, especially toward the end of the book, Steve Bannon became the central figure, and the book was mostly concerned with his rage over his rivals. Sometimes even it seems that the book is kind of personal revenge by Bannon against Trump and his family, which could be because, in this period, the author had been accompanying the Bannon's gang. Whatever the reason was, it should be said that although there are many reasons for criticising the Trump's administration, there is no virtue in doing so from the Steve Bannon's (an alt-right politician) perspective. Furthermore, some themes like the animosity between Bannon and Trump's family, or the rivalries between different personalities and factions within the Trump administration were repeated again and again, which made those parts boring from my point of view. I would give the first half three stars but to the whole book, considering the second half, I gave two stars. Finally, it worth to write that in this book, the name of another book ("The Best and the Brightest") was mentioned. I became curious and bought that book too, and started reading it. From my point of view, the comparison between "The Best and the Brightest" and this book would demonstrate the difference between a good book ("The Best and the Brightest") and a mediocre one ("Fire and Fury").

Lost interest about 2/3 of the way through....

I found myself vagueing out constantly.
I thought it was repetitive and I kept thinking, yeah, yeah Trump is an irresponsible self-righteous knob... blah, blah, blah... Trump, Bannon, Kushner, Ivanka, blah, blah, blah....
I'm sure much of the book is based on fact but it seems like there is a lot of assumptions and conveniently filling in the gaps. Maybe, maybe not?
I am not especially interested in politics but purchased this book because I was moderately was interested in the Trump story. I got about 9 hours in and aborted.
Probably worth a read if you're really into American politics.

FACT OR FICTION...THAT'S NOT THE POINT

Firstly, I enjoyed the book. I felt angry, sad, I laughed out loud so many times I lost count.
Many say it is a work of fiction, everyone will have an opinion and so they should. It is not hard to tell where a storyline has been "created to fill in gaps" and as such it is not trying to stand up as a "tell all factual guide and 100% accurate" piece. BUT!
There is so much there we DO know to be fact. So much DIRECTLY LINKED to specific people that it clearly the words of those mentioned. And so much that shows what a joke the situation is.
A great deal of the book reflects on Steve Bannon and his relationships with the Trumps, not just Don senior....VERY INTERESTING!
The writing style may not be to everyone's taste, but that is purely subjective. If you buy the audio book it is brilliantly read!

WORTH THE READ, WORTH THE MONEY, GREAT FUN, DISTURBING WHERE THE FACTS ARE EVIDENT. No matter what you think of the Orange man or the author, it is worth your time!

A fantastic insiders look.

If you could sum up Fire and Fury in three words, what would they be?

Interesting intriguing insightful

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love hearing about Steve Banon

What does Michael Wolff and Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

N/A

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Wolff knocked this one out of the park and Holter Graham lending his voice was a stroke of genius. The book is a must read/listen if you're even remotely interested in Donald Trump and American politics.

Fun but scary read

Fun because it is hilarious that such a fool as Trump was elected. Scary because, even if only some of what is in the book is true, such a fool as Trump was elected.
