Description

Bob Woodward’s new book, Rage, is an unprecedented and intimate tour de force of new reporting on the Trump presidency facing a global pandemic, economic disaster, and racial unrest.

Woodward, the number-one international best-selling author of Fear: Trump in the White House, has uncovered the precise moment the president was warned that the Covid-19 epidemic would be the biggest national security threat to his presidency. In dramatic detail, Woodward takes listeners into the Oval Office as Trump’s head pops up when he is told in January 2020 that the pandemic could reach the scale of the 1918 Spanish Flu that killed 675,000 Americans.

In 17 on-the-record interviews with Woodward over seven volatile months - an utterly vivid window into Trump’s mind - the president provides a self-portrait that is part denial and part combative interchange mixed with surprising moments of doubt as he glimpses the perils in the presidency and what he calls the “dynamite behind every door”.

At key decision points, Rage shows how Trump’s responses to the crises of 2020 were rooted in the instincts, habits, and style he developed during his first three years as president.

Revisiting the earliest days of the Trump presidency, Rage reveals how Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats struggled to keep the country safe as the president dismantled any semblance of collegial national security decision making.

Rage draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand witnesses as well as participants’ notes, emails, diaries, calendars, and confidential documents.

Woodward obtained 25 never-seen personal letters exchanged between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a “fantasy film”.

Trump insists to Woodward he will triumph over Covid-19 and the economic calamity. “Don’t worry about it, Bob. Okay?” Trump told the author in July. “Don’t worry about it. We’ll get to do another book. You’ll find I was right.”

An obsolete book

Trump is a disgrace for humanity and a terrible person. That's stating the obvious. Serial book writer Bob Woodward seems to aspire to become the John Grisham of popular politics and write as many books as possible even if he's got nothing new to share.

knock-down, drag-out

The narration was natural, like Bob Woodward in the room. It's remarkable he got 17 interviews after his last book on Donald Trump which was highly critical. Some interview segments were as chess masters fighting to a draw. Woodward concludes Trump is dangerous threat. 'Rage’ tells how Covid was downplayed, how Trump's methods got denounced by James Mattis, Rex Tillerson, Dan Coats, John Bolton and John Kelly, feeling he's disorganized, untrusting of his advisors, that he changes the subject and repeats himself to run out the clock. Featured is Trump's call with his Chinese counterpart who denied visas to US health experts, after which Trump messaged that corona virus wasn't real concern. This looked weak. My fave was Lindsey Graham who tried steering Trump to productive directions. Son in law Jared Kushner, described as yin to Trump's yang, said of Trump that "controversy elevates the message." Woodward suggested Bill Gates lead Covid response. For Woodward, Covid is defining issue, says presidential power expands over time. I wonder what happens if this trend continues. 'Rage' is stimulating no matter one's political loyalties, if any.

Nothing New Except....

The many people who back up these accounts and the deep reporting that is done to understand how Trump operates. It’s actually scary. Woodward does a great job providing an understanding of Trump’s methodology & psychology of his decision making process. I feel like I better understand that I keep thinking Trump is insane when he actually is very calculating which again is very disturbing. I would recommend this book.

Bob Woodward is a great writer

Bob Woodward has written many books and honesty is his best quality. When trump complains and whines like no president has ever done it’s because truth is his enemy. Great book and insight into this corrupt administration.

An honest perspective

This book based on the sincerity of the house reveals the true character of our president. Just to observe or hear his inability to stay on topic says a lot about who Trump is and why he is mentally and personally not a great candidate to serve as the leader of any country. i would recommend this to my friends.

The Cadillac of Trump Books

Having listened to way too many Trump books over the last four years (I've lost count), Woodward's style and end-result has the effect of carrying you along the twists and rubble-strewn paths of the Trump era with a vantage point of intellectual distance, rationality, and, dare I say, sanity. The book is laid out in a completely open and objective format with every claim and assertion backed by facts. He never oversteps this boundary between facts and opinion. When he does step in to offer his analysis, which he does from time-to-time (especially in his moving epilogue), he offers it as just that: his analysis. "Rage" has the added effect of making the reader a witness of sorts to history, much of which at the time of this review, was unfolding within months of the conclusion of the book's timeline. The result is a much needed perspective. In this way, Woodward offers up a kind of neutrality in an age of politics as sports. No doubt he achieves this from his decades of experience. The content itself, the narrative, has a way of creeping up on you and pulling you in, and before you know it, you've reached the end. Five stars all around. Great narration as well.

A Worthwhile Listen

Considering that the President day for seventeen interviews, I think this is as fair and balanced as one could expect. Both sides of the aisle will find things to gripe about but if they’re honest, they’ll also find things to -perhaps begrudgingly- admire. It’s a great book by an author who still sets the standard for journalism.

Rage

If you read ONE book about this administration, read the one with 25% of the content in Trump's voice, his own words. Not a second-hand interpretation, no filters, but the "real" Donald Trump. Rage is fundamentally a Q & A discussion with Bob Woodward - a talented author who has documented the administrations of 20% of America's presidents. There is commentary in the book relating to others in the Trump circle, Woodward notes - primarily details of taped conversations. The author goes to some length conveying authenticity, but there are a few elements of his observations and opinion. Woodward is not a lightweight, and nothing in this book can be disputed. If so, where are the libel suits? Crickets chirp. There are many books documenting the first term of Donald Trump as President of the United States, including Woodward's "Fear", Cohen's "Disloyal". Books by Mary Trump, John Bolton, Brian Stelter, more, and I've read these and more. Full disclosure: I will not and have not read anything by Sinclair talk radio hosts nor Fox News entertainment anchors. (FYI, Hannity is a dropout - Maddow has a Ph.D. in Political Science - any questions?) That said, it is not likely a Trump devotee will read this book, and that is a tragedy. Rage reveals the real man, worts and all. Narration by Robert Petkoff is fine, just over 13 hours of listening in audiobook format, released by Simon & Shuster on September 15, 2020. Recommended.

Disappointed

I am beyond hurt because the facts outlined in this book were more important to Woodward selling books than saving lives. I am an African American whose family suffered the effects of this virus. Luckily so far no one died. If one of them would have died I don’t know if I could’ve listened to this book. I have read in one form or another all of your books, but this is my last one. I listen to your previous books because I learned what happened, but this book I listen to see what could justify your withholding of information that could’ve saved life. My conclusion is nothing. I grew up in NYC so I know what Trump is capable of I didn’t need a book to tell me that and if people at this point need a book nothing you or I could say would help. But what could’ve help was you telling the “undecided” in his own words the severity of this virus. If you would have done it and it would have saved one life it would of been worth it, but instead you chose to release the information to sell your book. I wish you would have used your privilege to save lives instead of making a profit. I can’t help but feel you have blood on your hands.
