Rage

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Bob Woodward

Narrated By: Robert Petkoff

Duration: 13 hours 22 minutes

Summary:

Bob Woodward’s new book, Rage, is an unprecedented and intimate tour de force of new reporting on the Trump presidency facing a global pandemic, economic disaster and racial unrest.

Woodward, the #1 international bestselling author of Fear: Trump in the White House, has uncovered the precise moment the president was warned that the Covid-19 epidemic would be the biggest national security threat to his presidency. In dramatic detail, Woodward takes readers into the Oval Office as Trump’s head pops up when he is told in January 2020 that the pandemic could reach the scale of the 1918 Spanish Flu that killed 675,000 Americans.

In 17 on-the-record interviews with Woodward over seven volatile months—an utterly vivid window into Trump’s mind—the president provides a self-portrait that is part denial and part combative interchange mixed with surprising moments of doubt as he glimpses the perils in the presidency and what he calls the “dynamite behind every door.”

At key decision points, Rage shows how Trump’s responses to the crises of 2020 were rooted in the instincts, habits and style he developed during his first three years as president.

Revisiting the earliest days of the Trump presidency, Rage reveals how Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats struggled to keep the country safe as the president dismantled any semblance of collegial national security decision making.

Rage draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand witnesses as well as participants’ notes, emails, diaries, calendars and confidential documents.

Woodward obtained 25 never-seen personal letters exchanged between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a “fantasy film.”

Trump insists to Woodward he will triumph over Covid-19 and the economic calamity. “Don’t worry about it, Bob. Okay?” Trump told the author in July. “Don’t worry about it. We’ll get to do another book. You’ll find I was right.”

Includes excerpts from Bob Woodward’s interviews with President Donald J. Trump for Rage.

Genres:

  • Toni C.

    Really good picture of Trumps first 3 years and how he got the pandemic so wrong. Woodward was Super fair and objective, in my opinion. Also helped me understand why some of those people chose to serve under him.

  • Pamela C.

    whether Woodward agrees with him or not he is still our president and has done a wonderful job as such. what have u done woodward?

  • Murray L.

    Woodward personalizes the characters of this tragicomedy. This does not make Trump more likeable. His shallowness, callousness, and lack of seriousness are on full display. I was fortunate to be listening to “Rage” while the news was enveloping of Trump’s hospitalization. It was shocking to hear Trump. when asked by Woodward If he was worried about his exposure risk, say “I’m not worried. I don’t know why not. I’m not”. After 18 tightly reported interviews - mostly without editorial comment - Woodward’s controversial assertion that Trump is not fit for the presidency seems almost redundant.
