“A book historians will relish.”—Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal

'Must read. I've read every book about the Trump presidency. This is the best.'—Bill Press

An account like no other, from the White House reporter who has known President Donald Trump for more than 25 years.

We have never seen a president like this...norm-breaking, rule-busting, dangerously reckless to some and an overdue force for change to others. One thing is clear: We are witnessing the reshaping of the presidency.

Jonathan Karl brings us into the White House in a powerful book unlike any other on the Trump administration. He’s known and covered Donald Trump longer than any other White House reporter.  With extraordinary access to Trump during the campaign and at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Karl delivers essential new reporting and surprising insights. 

These are the behind-the-scenes moments that define Trump’s presidency--an extraordinary look at the president, the person, and those closest to him. This is the real story of Trump’s unlikely rise; of the struggles and battles of those who work in the administration and those who report on it; of the plots and schemes of a senior staff enduring stunning and unprecedented unpredictability.

Karl takes us from a TV set turned campaign office to the strange quiet of Trump’s White House on Inauguration Day to a high-powered reelection campaign set to change the country’s course. He shows us an administration rewriting the role of the president on the fly and a press corps that has never been more vital. Above all, this book is only possible because of the surprisingly open relationship Donald Trump has had with Jonathan Karl, a reporter he has praised, fought, and branded an enemy of the people.

I loved the book. Jonathan did a great job!! He is such a good, honest, down to earth guy and in listening I felt like he was sitting here just telling me about his career and experiences in dealing with our crazy president.

While it was not so wonderful to relive all the things this president has done to us in such a short time, it was great to get some behind the scenes stories and insights. Jonathan Karl is the exact kind of journalist I strived to be for 20+ years. Fair and objective. A very good read!
