Besprechung

Richly sourced and highly readable . . . Sheds new light on how the 45th president tests the boundaries of the office while trying the patience and dignity of those who work for or with him. It is not just another Trump tell-all or third-party confessional Guardian

Kurztext / Annotation

The definitive insider narrative and the most fully characterised account yet of the chaos, scandal and destruction of Trump's first term, from two Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post journalists.

Langtext

THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER

'It's all here in this stunning first draft of the history of the presidency of Donald Trump' Sydney Morning Herald

First came Fire and Fury to sound the alarm, then came Fear to spread unease, now A Very Stable Genius lifts the lid to bring us the full account.

Drawing on nearly three years of reporting, hundreds of hours of interviews and more than two hundred sources, including some of the most senior members of the administration, friends and first-hand witnesses who have never spoken before, Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig take us inside some of the most controversial moments of Trump's presidency. They peer deeply into Trump's White House - at the aides pressured to lie to the public, the lawyers scrambling to clear up norm-breaking disasters, and the staffers whose careers have been reduced to ashes - to paint an unparalleled group portrait of an administration driven by self-preservation and paranoia.

Rucker and Leonnig reveal Trump at his most unvarnished, showing the unhinged decision-making and incompetence that has floored officials and stunned foreign leaders. They portray unscripted calls with Vladimir Putin, steak dinners with Kim Jong-un, and calls with Theresa May so hostile that they left her aides shaken. They also take a hard look at Robert Mueller, Trump's greatest antagonist to date, and how his investigation slowly unravelled an administration whose universal value is loyalty - not to country, but to the president himself.

Grippingly told, A Very Stable Genius is a behind-the-scenes account of Trump's vainglorious pursuit of power in his first term - the rages and the frenzies, the dishonesty and the depravity - as he dodges impeachment, and squares up for the 2020 elections.

'Taut and terrifying . . . It reads like a horror story, an almost comic immorality tale' New York Times

'In often alarming detail, A Very Stable Genius chronicles the wild ride of the Trump presidency' Guardian

'A damning, well-reported, well-sourced and clearly written haymaker' Sunday Times

'There are brilliant flashes of insights and voices that have yet to be heard in the presidential cacophony' Financial Times

'Takes us behind the scenes of the Trump presidency, where we learn that the private Trump is - if you can believe it - even worse than what you see every day' Washington Post
