Overview

In 2016, a movie called Spotlight won the Oscar for Best Picture. It told the story of a small team of investigative journalists at The Boston Globe. They dug into an old case, which revealed that Catholic priests in the Boston area had systematically abused thousands of minors over decades. The true story won them a Pulitzer Prize. The Oscar it earned delivers an important message: journalism matters.

With enough time and the right resources, reporters have a chance of unraveling secrets the public needs to know. Michael Wolff is one of these reporters. Throughout Donald Trump's first year as 45th president of the United States of America, he conducted over 200 interviews with Trump and his senior staff. He also observed day-to-day operations in the West Wing of the White House.

The result is Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Titled after a phrase Trump used when threatening North Korea, the book describes Trump as an erratic, emotion-driven leader, his administration as unprepared and unprofessional, and the resulting politics as chaotic. Within three days of publication, the book sold over a million copies.

Favorite Quote

"Politics had seemed to become, even well before the age of Trump, a mortal affair. It was now zero-sum: When one side profited, another lost. One side's victory was another's death."
