#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.

  • Good, but flawed narrator

    By Aerdiplo_5
    Anonymous wants us to know that things are not going well for the steady state, but isn’t ready for “anything drastic.” Knows the president denies the help he got from Russians in the election, but thinks another election is the ideal remedy. They may be right, but their solution is as naive now as they were when they joined the administration. Here’s hoping we take this warning seriously for our own sake.

  • A Clear Warning to all Americans

    By Verndoosh
    This outstanding book was obviously written by someone very high up in the Whitehouse. He or she describes an administration reeling in almost daily chaos, manned by a staff mortified at the immoral behavior of the President. The author’s use of historical events brings into focus the damage being done by Trump to our nation’s moral direction.

  • Sobering Insight into Trump’s White House

    I’m not sure what I expected, but it is a sobering reality check for those who weren’t already familiar by now with Trump’s scary & criminal behavior on a day to day basis. Must read. I’m really sure now that Trump was never qualified to be President of our great Country.
  • This is Disgraceful.

    By Blue Dog Democrat
    The US Senate needs to use the power of the United States Congress to expose who this person is and imprison this person. If someone from Obama’s White House has done this they would have been publicly rebuked and would have had their lives ruined by the Media. This is disgraceful.
  • Superficial with nothing new

    By Epicure 2
    There’s nothing new here and the analyses, if one can call them that, are superficial and poorly written. Others like Woodward and Wolff have described the same situation Much more eloquently and convincingly. There’s just no reason to buy this book.

    Everyone, including Donald Trump, that has the capacity to read on a 4th grade level should read this book! Every GOP Senator who is not voting for Impeachment and Removal of Donald Trump from Office of President of the United States of America should read this book. They should reflect on the behavior and crimes against the Greatest Country in the World and how Donald Trump, his Family, as well as the GOP Senators have ruined it, and harmed innocent people in the process with not so much as on care or concern about any of their Constituents! God Almighty is the ruling Party of the United States not Donald Trump and for him to want people to call him a King is preposterous. I’m ashamed of every Republican Senator under the leadership of Donald Trump and how corrupt they have become.

    Nothing we don’t already know, but shines a light.
  • Scholarly, analytic, realpolitik--a breath of fresh air!

    By Ms. Hush Puppy
    A passionate writer providing dispassionate and historical analysis of how America has become more crude, more divided and less able to move forward with rational analyses to better support our balance of power as it was intended by the Framers. Amazing discussions of what has happened, questioning why & speculating on the future. Can you get a Pulitzer if you are Anonymous? I hope so!
