Wolff, Michael
The follow up to Fire and Fury, this title recounts the challenges of Trump's second year in office. While the first book was packed with personal stories and gossip due to the author's presence loitering in the West Wing as a freelance journalist, in this sequel his inside access is much more limited. However, he continues to have unfettered connection with Steve Bannon, and at times it feels like this book is more about Bannon than Trump. The author does his best to supplement the text with information gleaned from newspapers and the Mueller report, but overall the general tone is profoundly dictated by Bannon's perspective. I would recommend for someone who is really interested in Trump's presidency, but not if you are looking for a balanced report on Trumps' second year.
