Product description

Review

“I can’t believe I’m saying this: it’s worse than I even imagined.” – Stephen Colbert

“As much as you think you know about the arrogance, vanity and sheer incompetence of Trump’s years in the White House, Bolton’s account will still astonish you... No wonder the White House was so determined to block this book.” – David Ignatius, Washington Post

"A scathing and revelatory account... indispensable, jaw-dropping, and specific...what a truth he offers us." – The New Yorker

“Bolton's bombshell book shows it's still possible to be shocked by Trump's presidency” – The Guardian

“Mr. Bolton’s volume is the first tell-all memoir by such a high-ranking official who participated in major foreign policy events and has a lifetime of conservative credentials. It is a withering portrait of a president ignorant of even basic facts about the world, susceptible to transparent flattery by authoritarian leaders manipulating him and prone to false statements, foul-mouthed eruptions and snap decisions that aides try to manage or reverse.” – The New York Times

“The most substantive, critical dissection of the president from an administration insider… lays out a long series of jarring and troubling encounters between the president, his top advisers and foreign leaders.” – Washington Post

“A book full of damning details” – The Economist

“Explosive” – Business Insider

“Devastating portrait” – Telegraph

“Eye-popping”  – CNN

"Jarring" Jake Tapper, CNN

"Shows the scale and depth of Trump’s depravity and corruption." – The Atlantic

"A service to the nation... There is no question that this book contains explosive revelations that could well have an impact on the election." – Thomas Wright, The Brookings Institute, The Atlantic

“The details are damning.” – Fareed Zakaria

“The most devastating indictment yet.” – Nicolle Wallace

“A harrowing portrait” – Mother Jones

"Absurdly entertaining" - Ben Domenech, The Federalist

“A riveting read” - Trevor Noah, The Daily Show

"The most important White House memoir yet to emerge from the Trump administration" – National Review
