Frightening...Trump wants to move the missile detection system we have in place in South Korea to Portland, Oregon. It would only take 38 minutes for a missile to hit L.A. if this move happens. Better stock up on your comfort food...not enough time to shop, and get home to eat it before we are in a state of emergency.

As a boomer, i have a lot of crazy and shocking things that our leaders have done. This book exposes our current leader for what he is and i don't for a minute think that this is fake news.

EXPLOSIVE! This book was just released today, so, I purchased it this morning and I finished reading this explosive book this afternoon. The author, Bob Woodward, is THE Bob Woodward who wrote the famous book about Watergate. I'm sure this book will reach #1 on the NY Times Best Seller list in no time flat. Trump calls Jeff Sessions "a dumb Southerner" who is mentally retarded and an idiot. He has a vendetta against the Attorney General for recusing himself from the Russian collusion investigation. Former Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, calls Donald Trump a "(censored) moron." There are plenty of berating attacks on the President's conduct in the White House but the most confident one comes from John Dowd who became, but later resigned, as Trump's lawyer during the Mueller investigation. John Dowd said he could only wish that he could tell the President to his face: "You're a (censored) liar!"

Outstanding journalism. Book reads very well. I have not finished but it is even better than the previews released. I have ignored the other 'Trump' books because I was uncertain of the credibility of the author. Bob Woodward has proven over and over again to be an honorable, factual reporter. Up until the publication of this book even Donald Trump respected him. I have lived through quite a few presidencies but never one like this. Even if I didn't agree with the President's position I have always respected the office and the person holding it. This is no longer true. It is clear that we have a President with no morality. An extreme narcissist. No empathy or respect for others. Has a life pattern of disregarding laws of man and of morality. Cheating small business men, bullying, pathological liar, no respect for women. Much of his propaganda is very similar to that espoused by the Nazis. Read this and see the truth. It is scary but we still have time to change by voting our conscience.

I expected deeper insight into a president who is obviously ignorant and possibly mentally ill. Instead I got reinforcement of facts already leaked through various media by warring factions, past and present, in the west wing. I am still waiting for someone to expose Trump's old time flimflam man nature and lack of basic knowledge that allows people, domestic and foreign, to use him to further their agendas as long as he appears to win. I thought that Woodward was the one who could. Not this time.

I've taken most text written about this current administration with a grain of salt, although so much of it makes sense. As an investigative journalist and author, Woodward is about as credible as it gets which made reading this so difficult. It is extremely well-written and if even a small fraction of the content is true, we are in for a rough few years and then some.

DJT is the most corrupt and mentally unfit President in the history of this Republic. Read this book if you care about America’s future.

Finally, a book that explains why I can't sleep at night. Thank you, Bob Woodward.

GREAT READ! I'm fully convinced the detailed condition of the oval office, the President and it's administration dysfunctional organization, lack of co-operation between the department, and lack of confidence in the President to run this GREAT nation has been perfectly articulated by the author.

A Must Read. I found this book really hard to read, not because I didn't understand it, but because I was continually dumbfounded that this man was elected as our President. I have voted in every election since I was able to and even thought not every time did the candidate that I supported win, I never before felt the constant anxiety I do now. I don't know how Bob Woodward got these people talking, but if that doesn't scare you I am not what does. Its not just Trumps inability to tell the truth, and there are plenty of examples, but I also question the people in power who support him, greed definitely over country. Maybe this all needed to happen to shed a much needed light to show the corruption of the government? Defiantly a wake up call, a must read.

Thought there was going to be more in this book then what we already know.

Authenticated , detailed, with great insight into the chaos in the White House. Should be required reading for anyone thinking they can do the President's job. There is a reason for protocol, a reason for hierarchy, a reason for having experts. Unfortunately, Trump ignores all those reasons. This book clearly shows how disfunction will make its way into the American economy.

I thought there would be more new information. However, good information for a bad administration.

Legendary reporter Bob Woodward specializes in writing running chronicles of presidents as their administrations progress. Fear: Trump in the White House seems to reflect its subject's chaos and disorganization. I have no doubt of its veracity, but I wish Woodward had given the book more structure. He leaped from one crisis or debacle to another and back again until I felt disoriented. It would have been better had he placed areas like foreign policy, the economy, and the Mueller investigation into sections. I also thought Woodward should have given more background about the participants. Why were key players like Bannon, Kelly, Tillerson, Cohn, and Priebus selected? Why did they expect a master of chaos and raging egomaniac like Trump to pay any attention to them if they told him he was wrong? You probably should read Fear, but understand that it can be a bumpy ride. I wish I could go higher than 3 stars because I believe this book is important, but I can't.

Most of this was on various media throughout the last couple of years. Probably true nevertheless.

Interesting reading but sources and credibility questionable and unclear. The further i read the worse the editing seemed. Just oddly put together. Was hoping for more.
