    The instant number-one best seller.

    “This taut and terrifying book is among the most closely observed accounts of Donald J. Trump’s shambolic tenure in office to date." (Dwight Garner, The New York Times)

    Washington Post national investigative reporter Carol Leonnig and White House bureau chief Philip Rucker, both Pulitzer Prize winners, provide the definitive insider narrative of Donald Trump’s presidency

    “I alone can fix it.” So proclaimed Donald J. Trump on July 21, 2016, accepting the Republican presidential nomination and promising to restore what he described as a fallen nation. Yet as he undertook the actual work of the commander in chief, it became nearly impossible to see beyond the daily chaos of scandal, investigation, and constant bluster. In fact, there were patterns to his behavior and that of his associates. The universal value of the Trump administration was loyalty - not to the country but to the president himself - and Trump’s north star was always the perpetuation of his own power.

    With deep and unmatched sources throughout Washington, DC, Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker reveal the 45th president up close. Here, for the first time, certain officials who felt honor-bound not to divulge what they witnessed in positions of trust tell the truth for the benefit of history.

    A peerless and gripping narrative, A Very Stable Genius not only reveals President Trump at his most unvarnished but shows how he tested the strength of America’s democracy and its common heart as a nation.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "[Rucker and Leonnig] are meticulous journalists, and this taut and terrifying book is among the most closely observed accounts of Donald J. Trump’s shambolic tenure in office to date.... Their newspaper’s ominous, love-it-or-hate-it motto is ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness.’ A Very Stable Genius flicks the lights on from its first pages." (Dwight Garner, New York Times)

    "Richly sourced and highly readable... It is not just another Trump tell-all or third-party confessional. It is unsettling, not salacious." (Lloyd Green, The Guardian)

    "Imagine, for a moment, a high-octane courtroom prosecutor summing up for the jury a case built on the vivid testimony of multiple eye-witnesses.... You could scarcely ask for more capable advocates. Leonnig won a Pulitzer Prize for her reporting on the U.S. Secret Service in 2015, then joined Rucker and others on a team awarded the Pulitzer for stories on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Their new, collaborative account...walks readers step by step through the first 30 months or so of a presidency like no other. They leave little doubt that they and many of their sources regard that presidency as an unmitigated and deepening disaster - a threat to American government as we have known it. Whatever may happen to that impeachment effort in the weeks and months ahead, it creates a moment of intermission in the Trump saga and a chance to consider how the landscape has already been altered by this president. A Very Stable Genius offers a harrowing companion narrative to be read during intermission." (Ron Elving, NPR)

    Akribisch zusammengetragen, kritisch, aber (zu) viele kleinteilig Informationen für Außenstehende

    Ein akribisch zusammengetragenes und kritisches Werk, das sich leider in sehr kleinteiligen Erzählungen verliert. Außer, dass es bestätigt (was man eh schon weiß), dass die Position des einstmaligen Anführers der freien Welt von einem rassistischen, engstirnigen und narzistischen Edelproleten bekleidet wird, der der Demokratie massivst schadet, ist der Erkenntnisgewinn überschaubar. Lediglich das ohnehin große Unverständnis für die US-Wähler steigt. Ich habe das Hören vorzeitig abgebrochen (passiert nicht oft).

    Very little new perspective

    We are all punch drunk from the outrage of this presidency. The two journalists have done a great service in compiling all of these facts but the pattern that emerges is that a disgusting tyrant succeeds in spite of the facts. There is no real analysis or insight to take us further than other books that have covered this ground. The net effect is almost feeling sorry for trump in the face of all the failed attempts to save us from his instincts and power fueled excess.

    Extrem unaufgeregt, enlarvend, präzise

    Sicherlich eines der besten Bücher, wenn es darum geht, den Scharlatan und Egomanen im Weißen Haus zu entlarven.

    mindless usurper?

    Gut geschrieben. Sprecherin ist mE zwar gut, aber aufgrund ihres Akzents (?) bzw. Sprechweise manchmal mehr zum gedanklichen Wegdriften geeignet. Wenn man den amerikanischen Nachrichten folgt, ist im Prinzip alles schon bekannt. Die Bewertung bezieht sich auf die amerikanische Ausgabe u englisch ist meine Zweitsprache, daher kann es gut sein, dass eine Muttersprachlern das ganz anders empfindet. Ich plane, es in 10 Jahren nochmal zu hören. Mal sehen, wie sich das alles dann anfühlt.

    Very scary. Almost like a horror story.

    I am scared about the future. In many ways this book only confirms suspicions that have been lurking in my mind. I can only pray about the future (and vote).
