#1 NEW YORK TIMES AND #1 WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER
An unprecedented behind-the-scenes portrait of the Trump presidency from the anonymous senior official whose first words of warning about the president rocked the nation's capital.
On September 5, 2018, the New York Times published a bombshell essay and took the rare step of granting its writer anonymity. Described only as "a senior official in the Trump administration," the author provided eyewitness insight into White House chaos, administration instability, and the people working to keep Donald Trump's reckless impulses in check.
With the 2020 election on the horizon, Anonymous is speaking out once again. In this book, the original author pulls back the curtain even further, offering a first-of-its-kind look at the president and his record -- a must-read before Election Day. It will surprise and challenge both Democrats and Republicans, motivate them to consider how we judge our nation's leaders, and illuminate the consequences of re-electing a commander in chief unfit for the role.
This book is a sobering assessment of the man in the Oval Office and a warning about something even more important -- who we are as a people.

This book is one that should be read by every Trumper, Fox Opinion news fan, and those who have had their heads buried for the past three years. Of course that will never happen. The book is, however, well written and very informative. Those of us who have been following events since 2016 are well aware of the disastrous and dangerous course of the Trump presidency. I didn’t learn anything new but do look forward to finding out who the mystery author is.
The dull and ignorant amount us will not like this book but those with open minds, the educated, good Americans will love this. It shows what goes on behind the scenes of the worst, most corrupt political regime the free world has ever known.
Tick Tock fake conservatives!
This is a difficult book to review. The author did show eloquently his/her incredible knowledge on history and intertwined that information with events of the day, which was interesting. My difficulty is with all this knowledge, it all begged the question “Why did you work for Trump in the first place?”. All one has to do is review Trump’s own history to know the White House would be a circus, but this author worked for him anyway, eventually under the guise of protecting the country from Trump’s worst impulses. I have so many problems with that... first this person did not say anything about Trump and his White House I did not know. Second, the author was not elected, you do not ignore a president’s command. You can either say ..., you disagree and quit, be a whistleblower, or just go along. You do not ignore....that is treason, even for an inept President. Next, the author quoted all these incredible courageous people from the past, but the author goes under Anonymous, rationalizing that Republicans would not read this book any other way. I have a very hard time buying the “anonymous” rationale. Then, the author talked about how we should vote for our leaders in terms of morals among other issues, and all I could think “But you worked for an person who has no values...so why should I listen to you”. It was too much lecturing from someone who should have known better.
