I enjoyed this book, it made me laugh, and seemed plausible. It didn't feel like a hatchet job and Wolff provided some analysis of the personal and interpersonal factors that contribute to the chaos within the White House that I thought demonstrated psychological and political insight. Bannon comes off as one of the few individuals with any brains or education or wit. This unfortunately is offset by the fact that he is a scoundrel, but still I'm inclined to believe his scorching evaluations of the various players. I think Wolff relied heavily on him and wonder to what extent the views of others like Spicer, Preibus, and Javanka are reflected. Whenever skepticism would start to nag at me, I would remember Scaramucci, that his appointment was a real thing, and that would put an end to my doubt.

The book pulled together a coherent tale all the outrageous bits and pieces that have been our steady diet on the news. Also Wolff was not trading in sex stories, barely mentioned Melania, and this indicated to me some restraint and discipline in the organization of the book. Or, as so many are fond of saying, you just can't make this shit up.

What can I say about this book that hasn't already been covered the media? Between opening the doors to a journalist (Wolff) and then treating him like a confident, it's no surprise what happened: the truth got out.

There have been a number of stories that haven't been shared as widely as others from this book that still stuck with me:

• When alone with a colleagues wife that Trump wanted to sleep with, he called her husband on speakerphone and got him to admit to compromising things so he could pursue her (this happened with multiple women).
• Jared Kushner is painted as the most knowledgeable person in the entire white house - or at least the one that listens to other people before making his own opinion.
• Just how much no one in the campaign wanted to win the election, and that everything they did was to make it seem like less of a blowout so they could all move on to better jobs after the loss.

This book was all over the news, and that made me interested in checking it out. I was disappointed to find that it was sensationalized to the point of unreliability.

Nothing credible was surprising, and nothing surprising was credible.

The author describes conversations he couldn't possibly have witnessed, full of things that the people who were actually there might've plausibly said. There was some insight into the relationships and tensions of the Trump administration white house, and it was clear that the author had access and shared a lot of office gossip. ( )
  wishanem | May 27, 2021 |
No surprises, at least if you've been paying even the slightest amount of attention over the past 18 months or more. The appeal is clearly that "fly on the wall" effect of witnessing all the things I already assumed, except even worse.

Worth the read, even if you skim chunks. ( )

Gossipy. Believable. Nothing surprising but an amusing read. ( )

Wolff is strongest when he’s writing on what he knows best: the insecurities and ambitions of Trump and other media fixtures. Yet while much of this presidency does revolve around news coverage, it is still a presidency. And Wolff is far weaker when it comes to politics.
 
What ultimately salvages the book are those moments when he all but makes Bannon his co-author, letting Bannon describe West Wing showdowns with his moderate nemesis, Jarvanka, in ways that render this the de facto first insider account of the Trump White House. Of course, the recollections are just those of a single aide, and may include what Trump himself once called examples of “truthful hyperbole.”

In the newspaper business, such stories would be deemed “too good to check.” But given the popularity of “Fire and Fury,” Wolff might call them something else: liberal catnip.
 
Wolff’s access to Trump and his inner circle is evident. At the outset, Wolff writes of how he sat down with Trump in his Beverly Hills home, while Kushner and Trump aides Hope Hicks and Corey Lewandowski milled about. Likewise, the quotes obviously bespeak knowledge and close proximity.

Unlike Hillary Clinton, Trump represented a movement, and that fact deserved greater elucidation by Wolff. Said differently, among Fire and Fury’s shortcomings are its failure to adequately explain how Trump arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and its insufficient appreciation for the bond forged by Trump and his base. In that sense, the book lacks the connective tissue present in Devil’s Bargain, Joshua Green’s take on the Trump campaign and the first few months of the presidency.

Clearly, Fire and Fury has set off a storm that has left its share of casualties. ... Make no mistake, Wolff’s latest is a must-read. It pulls away whatever curtain still cloaks the Trump White House, leaving those who know Trump best to do the talking.
 
Is it accurate? Many details are simply wrong. Whether the larger narrative is true is a different question....A bigger problem with Fire and Fury, however, is that by any standard of sound journalism it has big problems with transparency and sourcing. The people who take time to read the book for themselves will find a devastating portrait of Donald Trump. Trump is portrayed as totally out to lunch, with such a short attention span that he’s incapable of reading policy briefs much less of analyzing a problem or making a well-informed decision. Trump is shown constantly watching cable TV, frustrated and confused by the fact that he doesn’t receive widespread approval. His staff is well aware of his shortcomings and wonders just how long they can continue the illusion that Trump is capable of governing.

Wolff inevitably likens the Russian cover-up to the skulduggery of Watergate, and briefly updates us on Pissgate and Pussygate – respectively the spurious tale of the golden shower in Moscow, and Trump’s better-authenticated braggadocio about his success as a groper (although, evidently believing that executive privilege protects his mendacity, he now claims that it “really wasn’t me” on that tape).

Fire and Fury also gives the lowdown on the lacquered trompe-l’oeil that is Trump’s hairdo, with those tinted tendrils combed over a cranium that is totally bald and resonantly empty. But beyond such acts of exposure, what makes the book significant is its sly, hilarious portrait of a hollow man, into the black hole of whose needy, greedy ego the whole world has virtually vanished. Wolff deplores Trump, explains the conditions that made him possible, and accuses us all of colluding in this madness.
