Book Summary: With extraordinary access to the Trump White House, Michael Wolff tells the inside story of the most controversial presidency of our time

The first nine months of Donald Trump's term were stormy, outrageous—and absolutely mesmerizing. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, bestselling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself.

In this explosive book, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations:

— What President Trump's staff really thinks of him
— What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama
— Why FBI director James Comey was really fired
— Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn't be in the same room
— Who is really directing the Trump administration's strategy in the wake of Bannon's firing
— What the secret to communicating with Trump is
— What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers

Never before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.
Book Review: Much like the rest of the world, I had not actually planned on reading this book. This book was, in my mind, just another book banking on the Trump White House. I am not a fan of Trump. Have never been a fan of his in the past or in the present. I never believed he was qualified to become president and had been one of many millions of Americans that had believed that the election of 2016 was one of the worst one records mainly because Trump supporters had come out of the woodwork believing in the lies of one Donald Trump. He had certainly weaved himself a web around his supporters, blinding them into believing he was a much better candidate than that of Hilary Clinton.

As the book drew near, Trump seemed to start sweating as if he knew that this book could be explosive once the public got their hands on it. Suddenly he started screaming that it was "Fake News!" and that he did not give the author any sort of privilege to White House members. Hell, even the White House members were denying it and this in turn caused the public to hunger for the book.

And that hunger suddenly grew more intense when Trump started threatening the author and the publisher with a lawsuit.

It was then the public wanted very much to know exactly what was in this book that Trump wanted very much to hide from the public.

Ever since Donald Trump threw his hat into the election ring, he had been hoping that it would be for naught. After all, Melania had no desire to leave her ivory tower at Trump Tower to move into the White House. He had promised her that it all would be over and then things could go back to normal while all the while he could scream that the election was stolen from him.

When he found he had won the election, he and the rest of his supporters were stunned and the rumor was that Melania, whom cherished her privacy and glided tower at Trump Tower, cried knowing she would have no choice but to move into the White House.

And once he was in the White House, he set about erasing everything his predecessor had done. Not because anything Obama did was completely wrong but because Trump had a complete disdain for the Obamas.

And what of the fear of being poisoned? Well Trump believes that buying fast food is the best route because in his mind no one knows the food is for him and certainly no one would dare poison such food that would be considered consumption for the public.

This book was filled with interesting information about the Trump White House and how everyone within does their best to fill Trump's head with believable fantasies that he is one of the greatest presidents.

Despite Trump's protest over this book, I would not be suprised if this book becomes a national bestseller. In fact, I actually expect it to be with both sides - liberal and conservative - interested in the narrative Wolff's book brings with all the tidbits and whatnots to it.
