Product Description
Product Details

About the Author

Bob Woodward is an associate editor at The Washington Post where he has worked for 49 years and reported on every American president from Nixon to Trump. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first for the Post's coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein, and second 20 years later as the lead Post reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.


"A harrowing portrait of the Trump presidency . . . Again and again, Woodward recounts at length how Trump's national security team was shaken by his lack of curiosity and knowledge about world affairs and his contempt for the mainstream perspectives of military and intelligence leaders."--Phillip Rucker and Robert Costa, The Washington Post

"A damning picture of the current presidency."--David Martin, CBS News "An unprecedented inside-the-room look through the eyes of the President's inner circle. . . . stunning."--CNN "A devastating reported account of the Trump Presidency that will be consulted as a first draft of the grim history it portrays . . . What Woodward has written is not just the story of a deeply flawed President but also, finally, an account of what those surrounding him have chosen to do about it."--Susan B. Glasser, The New Yorker "Fear is Woodward at his best, the quintessential investigative reporter with an eye for detail and an uncanny ability to get key players to ensure that their perspective is etched into history. Its timing could not be more critical for a nation exhausted by tweets and spin, and trying to assess the danger to democracy posed by a presidency that shatters its norms and demeans its institutions."--John Diaz, San Francisco Chronicle "In an age of 'alternative facts' and corrosive tweets about 'fake news, ' Woodward is truth's gold standard. . . . explosive . . . devastating . . . jaw-dropping."--Jill Abramson, The Washington Post "Woodward's latest book shows the administration is broken, and yet what comes next could be even worse."--David A. Graham, The Atlantic "[Woodward] is the master and I'd trust him over politicians of either party any day of the week."--Peter Baker "Woodward . . . depicts the Trump White House as a byzantine, treacherous, often out-of-control operation . . . Mr. Woodward's book has unsettled the administration and the president in part because it is clear that the author has spoken with so many current and former officials."--Mark Landler and Maggie Haberman, New York Times "The more heartening message from FEAR is that we still have institutions and individuals, including Bob Woodward, who will continue checking the most destructive instincts of Donald Trump."--Joe Scarborough "You can trust that Woodward has gone to inordinate lengths to get to the best obtainable version of the truth."--Mike Allen, Axios "I wonder how many journalists have arrived in Washington over the years dreaming of becoming the next Bob Woodward . . . Though his books are often sensational, he is the opposite of sensationalist. He's diligent, rigorous, fastidious about the facts, and studiously ethical. There's something almost monastic about his method . . . He's Washington's chronicler in chief."--Nick Bryant, BBC "No, Bob Woodward is not a Democratic operative. He's a highly respected journalist who has a track record of writing meticulously detailed books about presidents with an uncanny knack for getting behind-the-scenes details."--POLITICO Playbook "He's got tapes. That's what the Trump White House really did not understand until today, if they understand it even now."--Lawrence O'Donnell, MSNBC "I think you've always been fair."--President Donald J. Trump, in a call to Bob Woodward, August 14, 2018

Customer Questions & Answers
How does this edition differ from the hardback edition you are also selling? - Customer question on 08/09/2018
Hi, Thanks for your enquiry. We can confirm that the content of both titles of the same name are the same. However, the price that the publisher sets in different countries is often different. For example, American books are usually cheaper than UK, Australian and New Zealand books. Since we have suppliers in different countries and the shipping times often differ, customers are given the choice of choosing which version is best for them. Kind regards, Catherine
