Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Basically, all you need to know from this book are two things that you already knew:

1. Trump is an idiot.

2. There are better books about Bannon and Trump out there.

The book is not very well put together, it is basically just a gossip column, and it is repetitious. I think that some things in this book are true and some aren't. But in such cases, the best thing to do is to look for patterns--and the most obvious pattern is that Trump is easily led by whomever has the floor at the time and doesn't have any clue what he is doing.

That being said, the book is more about Bannon than it is about Trump. If you are interested in Bannon, I recommend Devil's Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency by Joshua Green.

I basically read Fire and Fury because I like to form my own opinions, and in my opinion, this added little to the conversation.
