    • Bob Woodward has not written a conventional biography of Donald Trump. His book, "Fear: Trump in the White House". is 42 chapters long, with each chapter being another tale of woe about Trump and his time in the White House. As with all Bob Woodward books, it is very plainly written. There's not much flowery writing in "Fear", just the facts. Woodward lets the reader put their own interpretation on what he's written; unfortunately, most readers - like me - will see facts that add up to a disaster of a presidency.Should fans of Donald Trump buy and read "Fear"? Yes, but they probably won't because the truth, as accounted by Bob Woodward, is not an easy read. I'm a liberal Democrat - horrified by Donald Trump and his presidency since the time when Trump came down the escalator in Trump Tower in 2015 - and I'm finding it difficult to have my greatest fears verified.I also find it interesting that Bob Woodward and his publisher chose to release the book on September 11th.
    • The reality is sobering. Our form of government clearly did not work as the framers intended when we elected the man-child Donald, who never should have been accorded presidential powers. Donald the blowhard, malignant narcissist, sociopath, perpetual liar (mixed with delusion), meant to be a reality tv star and hustler, not leader of the free world. The evidence was out there…..but somehow here we are, on the self-induced path to our own destruction. Who would have thought that American supremacy could end in this way?I am thankful to Woodward for *Fear*. It is a highly detailed account that confirms our suspicions about Trump while alerting us to the real and present danger posed every day he remains in office. It is up to us, now, to get him out. Some of the damage he is doing is irreversible. Every American needs to be on a mission, to save what we love so our children and grandchildren will have freedoms and rights and economic prosperity that we have enjoyed.You will encounter Trump’s most influential enablers in *Fear*. How could they have propped this man up, knowing what they knew about him? Just because a man CAN become president doesn’t mean he SHOULD be president. But in this administration, as can be seen in endless vignettes in the book, character does not matter. Imagine that. Truthfulness is for sissies. Winners need not have honor. Slander should be the weapon of choice if a candidate can pull it off (as Trump does magnificently and maliciously).Woodward’s *Fear* is carefully researched with documentation. The author is unarguably truthful, honorable, a "winner" with known approved character. Let’s appreciate the many truths he has uncovered for us, so we can better figure out what we must do to save our democratic republic. Let this book serve as a call to all patriots capable of seeing through the glass clearly: Americans, we the people, can get our country through this assault on our values, way of life and treasured form of governance.
    • Agent Orange is gonna see red now. I can't believe we as a country did this. Thank you Bob for some objective insight into that circus.
    • Perhaps no president has been written of by more writers during his first two years as President than has the current occupant of the White House.Neither has any topped Donald Trump in his ability to polarize a nation. I, myself, find Mr. Trump a repugnant specimen of human nature. Yet, even as I curse him for his apparent lack of empathy for other human beings, I do occasionally find his approach to politics refreshing. Why?In search of an answer for that last question, I have read most every book about the guy. Woodward’s “Fear” is probably the greatest insight we ever shall have into the psyche of America’s closest approximation to Adolph Hitler.Because of “Fear,” I understand better as to why Donald J. Trump is the greatest threat to our republic.BLUSH FACTOR: There are profanities of most every sort. Still, since this is nonfiction, I hope every American reads “Fear.”The writing in “Fear” is thought-provoking and uneven. Because of Woodward’s dependence on Deep Background, I cannot rate it five stars. I WANT to know who said what, precisely.Still, this is the one great insight into Donald J. Trump that history will most appreciate.BOTTOM LINEFour stars out of five.
    • How did we ever, got to this point, should be the question to ALL of us.
