    • Bob Woodward is certifiably THE most respected investigative journalist of the last 50 years and has covered countless administrations. The man has certifiably no agenda against Trump or the current administration (as could be inferred from Comney's book) that would call into question the integrity of the stories contained.That being said, however, this book isn't exactly full of breaking news. We know Trump was and remains unprepared to be the president. We know he won through the extremist right wing media coverage. We know the economy is doing well but that many of the decisions were made outside of his own direct understanding.That being said, this book offers a very official feeling look into Trump's current predicament and inability and unfitness for the job. The most shocking parts of this book however, had not previously been covered. i.e. his own staff hiding documents and his Twitter causing international tensions, the level of which not previously understood.While many on the right will scream that many of the sources in this book denied quotes or stories about them, I mean, who wouldn't? If you were caught by your boss for talking about them behind their back or undermining their authority, who wouldn't lie to save their own position? Let's be real. "Yes sir/Mam'n I took documents off your desk to save our company and hid them." No one would do that. The evidence and amount of corroboration outweighs any half-denials. Both Rob Porter and Gary Cohn issued lengthy statements of denial regarding taking documents, but never actually denied taking the documents. Everything else can be corroborated as Bob is known for his due diligence.I find a small sense of relief and a strong appreciation for having Bob Woodward to continue to investigate in the same manner that brought down the Nixon administration during Watergate during this complex and inconceivable time in American history.I'll end this with one food for thought; Bob Woodward has some of the highest journalistic credentials and his work has been lauded for decades for it's integrity and truthfulness, covering every president from Nixon to Clinton, to Bush and Obama. Trump has been caught in lie after lie. I'll shape my opinions accordingly. I hope everyone else in this country turns off Fox News and other strongly biased news sources (on both sides) and does the same.
    • Reading this book, I felt as though Mr. Woodward was sitting opposite me on a sofa with a coffee table between us. Each of us had a cup of coffee and were just having a personal conversation. On the table was spread out various documents that were backing up the incredible tale being discussed. This is my attempt to get persons that would normally not even try to read a dull or dry non-fiction book to pay attention to an extremely well written book that tells us information we, as Citizens of the United States of America need to learn.I found myself reading the book as though I was sitting with a jury hearing a case and trying to determine if there was truly a 'reasonable doubt' to be found. Was the subject of the case truly doing his best to run this country in the country's best interest.I have made my decision and now ask all readers to do likewise. Even though the book was written under 'deep cover', meaning names not used, there were many names used. The rhythms of the words for others gave away their identities even where actual names weren't offered. This is an important book. I ignored the various news clips and televised discussions and decided to read this book unbiased. I hope you will as well.Thank you, Mr. Woodward for informing the public of information we truly need and deserve.
    • Thoroughly researched and vetted, Bob Woodward’s detailing of life within the Trump White House is as engrossing as it is frightening – hence the title.Donald Drumpf may be invoking unmitigated fear in the minds and hearts of his top advisors but it’s also what every concerned American paying attention over the past two years will be feeling every day until Stormy Daniels’ lover is removed from office.
    • I went w/the Kindle version because I couldn’t wait. I can highlight, bookmark, search, & re-read this as many times as it takes to absorb the things that I miss in my haste. Read on my iPhone or Kindle...I hope I can find a place to stop or I’m pulling an all-nighter for the first time in 25+ years. TY, Bob Woodward. You and Walter Cronkite were my heroes as a young journalist, & I am grateful that you are again describing the unimaginable. - Prairie Girl
    • Common sense narrative.factual, moving. It is scary and helpful to learn the background, inside, activities that caused the terrifying roller coaster ride we are now all on. It is told calmly, with compassion.
