Description

An unprecedented behind-the-scenes portrait of the Trump presidency from the anonymous senior official whose first words of warning about the president rocked the nation's capital.

On September 5, 2018, the New York Times published a bombshell essay and took the rare step of granting its writer anonymity. Described only as "a senior official in the Trump administration," the author provided eyewitness insight into White House chaos, administration instability, and the people working to keep Donald Trump's reckless impulses in check.

With the 2020 election on the horizon, Anonymous is speaking out once again. In this book, the original author pulls back the curtain even further, offering a first-of-its-kind look at the president and his record -- a must-read before Election Day. It will surprise and challenge both Democrats and Republicans, motivate them to consider how we judge our nation's leaders, and illuminate the consequences of re-electing a commander in chief unfit for the role.

This book is a sobering assessment of the man in the Oval Office and a warning about something even more important -- who we are as a people.

    Inspired me to be a better, more engaged citizen.
  • Reviewers of a book should really be those who have bothered to read it

    If you’re just here to write a fake review out of fear of others being brainwashed by this book, please don’t bother. And you really shouldn’t bother reading the book, either. It will likely just make you mad, and you’re probably mad enough already. There is honestly little new Trump-centric information included in this book. Some of the stuff was news to me, but most has been covered elsewhere. However, there is wonderful insight. In addition, there is a wealth of information on the actions and reactions of the boot lickers who surround the President. Putting a premium on loyalty at the expense of truth is emblematic of those who aren’t completely at ease in the situation in which they find themselves. Anonymous is a great philosopher, a top-notch author, and probably Mike Pence. Anonymous would get my vote in a heartbeat. In fact, I’m thinking of doing a write-in for Anonymous next November.

    This isn’t truth. A lot of embellishments, emotion. Just gather narcissists in a room and this book is what you get . You’re better off researching things on your own, look deep, and look at what the author doesn’t say. Very telling

    The left continues their path of indoctrinating people on destroying our country. We don’t want socialism or communism - do you get it libs! Trump has had to fix all of traitor Obama’s messes. Come on, don’t bother to read this garbage.
  • Gutless author

    All hearsay and lies. That’s exactly why the author is gutless and won’t reveal his name. The degree to which Never Trumpers will go is pathetic. Don’t bother buying this trash. Alice in Wonderland is much better.

    I was not going to read the book as so much had been revealed in advance. And full disclosure, I am a liberal democrat who does not share any of the ideology of the author. I finished the book early this morning was very impressed by it. It was well written, and I feel sincere in the authors’ desire to present an accurate portrait of this administration. Although it did not break new ground in terms of disclosures, it thoughtfully examines both Trump and associates. The motives of those who continue to support him are familiar to anyone who ever attends an American high school-the cruel and stupid bully, the dim bulbs who find shelter in jockeying for approval and those who are canny enough to find a way to benefit from the chaos while sacrificing their integrity in the process. However the author really aims the treatise to the silent majority who just kept their heads down, looking forward to graduation and escaping the mess. The final chapter is commencement address to a nation in dire need of a clarion call to action. We are the ones responsible for the current state of affairs and the only ones who can clean up the mess. Failing to do just that will ensure future graduates will lack to opportunity to do so!
