"The first nine months of Donald Trump's term were stormy, outrageous -- and absolutely mesmerizing.

Gossipy. Believable. Nothing surprising but an amusing read. ( )

Ugh. This is the most boring book I've heard in a long time, and it's questionably sourced. Somehow, Michael Wolff managed to turn salacious/tumultuous/chaotic stories of the first year of the Trump White House into some banal/boring stupidity. There really is nothing here: there was some conflict among some of the staff, but that's basically it. Maybe there will be an interesting book about the Trump Presidency in the future, but this book isn't it.

The audiobook is painful to listen to as well; I'd read the text instead. Ploddingly slow at 1x, and at 2x sounds breathless. ( )

It was okay.

The book is so obviously rushed to print. There's small typos everywhere. Sentences run-on, ramble, or contain nested asides (of differing amounts of relevance to the main idea), and chapter/paragraph organization is sloppy. (It'd drive my advisers to conniption.) There's small errors like the wrong year or a mis-spelling in a name that make the text look like the author didn't know what he was talking about, but given the nature of the error I think its more likely an artifact of its rushed and largely un-edited state.

Reading this book over 5 months, I'm inclined to believe it. Do I think the quotes are exact? No, not for a second, especially when Wolff most assuredly was likely getting many of them second- or third-hand (compounding the issues with the lack of transparency of sources). But the 'gist' of the narrative seems to check out - I don't know if it matters if Trump was called a 'fucking moron' versus the synonymous 'fucking idiot' when the rest of the context is accurate.

This book is a study on preaching to the converted and telling folks what they want to hear - Wolff knows his audience. While I appreciate how hard it trolled Trump, I didn't really gain any new knowledge from this book, or new insight on Trump's presidency. I already knew he was unintelligent, uninformed, and largely uneducated in any area relevant to the position. I already knew he was easily flustered and frustrated, easily charmed and manipulated, and easily confused. I already knew he has trouble controlling his temper, controlling his staff, and controlling his own attention. I already knew he was unorganized in his thought, speech, and policies.

That's the problem with this book. And The Case for Impeachment. And A Higher Loyalty. No matter how fast you rush a book out, its too late. Trump's already moved on to other mistakes, scams, and scandals. The modern media struggle to keep up with every political faux pas, obvious lies, and general un-Presidential behavior that a book has no chance. ( )

Interesting, horrifying, hilarious and mostly gossip. ( )
  LoisSusan | Dec 10, 2020 |
Well written and credible, although little in it is new - most has appeared in other print media, albeit not in on place at the same time. It perfectly describes a dysfunctional White House and its oily nepotism. ( )

Wolff is strongest when he’s writing on what he knows best: the insecurities and ambitions of Trump and other media fixtures. Yet while much of this presidency does revolve around news coverage, it is still a presidency. And Wolff is far weaker when it comes to politics.
 
Wolff’s access to Trump and his inner circle is evident. At the outset, Wolff writes of how he sat down with Trump in his Beverly Hills home, while Kushner and Trump aides Hope Hicks and Corey Lewandowski milled about. Likewise, the quotes obviously bespeak knowledge and close proximity.

Unlike Hillary Clinton, Trump represented a movement, and that fact deserved greater elucidation by Wolff. Said differently, among Fire and Fury’s shortcomings are its failure to adequately explain how Trump arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and its insufficient appreciation for the bond forged by Trump and his base. In that sense, the book lacks the connective tissue present in Devil’s Bargain, Joshua Green’s take on the Trump campaign and the first few months of the presidency.

Clearly, Fire and Fury has set off a storm that has left its share of casualties. ... Make no mistake, Wolff’s latest is a must-read. It pulls away whatever curtain still cloaks the Trump White House, leaving those who know Trump best to do the talking.

Wolff inevitably likens the Russian cover-up to the skulduggery of Watergate, and briefly updates us on Pissgate and Pussygate – respectively the spurious tale of the golden shower in Moscow, and Trump’s better-authenticated braggadocio about his success as a groper (although, evidently believing that executive privilege protects his mendacity, he now claims that it “really wasn’t me” on that tape).

Fire and Fury also gives the lowdown on the lacquered trompe-l’oeil that is Trump’s hairdo, with those tinted tendrils combed over a cranium that is totally bald and resonantly empty. But beyond such acts of exposure, what makes the book significant is its sly, hilarious portrait of a hollow man, into the black hole of whose needy, greedy ego the whole world has virtually vanished. Wolff deplores Trump, explains the conditions that made him possible, and accuses us all of colluding in this madness.

Fire and Fury is really two books rolled into one. The first is a compelling nonfiction book about the intellectual divide in the modern right, as candidly hashed out to Wolff by influential figures like Steve Bannon and Roger Ailes and (seemingly?) Rupert Murdoch.

The second is a Primary Colors-style novel about what goes on behind various closed doors in the Trump White House, based on a few bits and pieces of fact, which are offset by mountains of eye-rollingly insupportable supposition, spiced with occasional stretches of believable analysis.
