Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael WolffPresident Donald Trump and the staff of his presidential campaign and White House. The title refers to a quote by Trump about the conflict with North Korea. The book became a New York Times number one bestseller. Reviewers generally accepted Wolff's portrait of a dysfunctional Trump administration, but were skeptical of many of Wolff's particular claims. The book highlights descriptions of Trump's behavior, chaotic interactions among senior White House staff, and derogatory comments about the Trump family by former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. According to Michael Wolff , when he approached Donald Trump about writing a book on his presidency , Trump agreed to give him access to the White House because he liked an article Wolff wrote about him in June for The Hollywood Reporter. Starting in mid, Wolff interviewed campaign and transition staff.
Full of Fire and Fury, Signifying Nothing
Details: The book, "about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side," begins with Year 2 and ends with the delivery of the Mueller report. The publisher says: "'Siege' reveals an administration that is perpetually beleaguered by investigations and a president who is increasingly volatile, erratic, and exposed. Publishing sources say " Siege " is about what Wolff considers the insurmountable legal, personal and political challenges ahead of Trump — about everybody coming after him. Although "Fire and Fury" was criticized, I'm told that more than two-thirds of the book's essential sources talked to Wolff again. Go deeper: Preorder the new book.

Fire and Fury, which has reportedly sold more than 4 million copies to date, was simply too down-and-dirty, too explosive, too scandalous for any sources to be willing to talk to Wolff again. Apparently not. As Axios recently reported , Wolff interviewed some people for the Fire and Fury sequel— out June 4 from Henry Holt—more than two-thirds of whom were repeat customers. Former senior officials, Trump pals, etc. And once again, the dirt is abundant. Donald Trump insults everyone in his orbit, repeatedly, viciously, and—always privately—they return the favor.
Here we go again: another juicy book about the White House, early leaks, a round of flat denials, shortly to be followed—in all likelihood—by a set of fevered interpretations and recriminations. The book is Siege , by Michael Wolff. But the bigger problem is the format. What more can we learn about a president who is already so heavily exposed? Once upon a time, the tell-all would actually tell something new about a president.
