The Room Where It Happened

A White House Memoir

John Bolton

This White House memoir is a comprehensive and substantial account of the Trump Administration, written by former National Security Advisor, John Bolton. Bolton spent many of his 453 days in the room where it happened, and the facts speak for themselves. With almost daily access to the President, Bolton documents exactly how Trump's Ukraine-like transgressions existed across the full range of his foreign policy. With wit and wry humor, Bolton reveals a President addicted to chaos, who embraced enemies and spurned friends, and was deeply suspicious of his own government. This book is a must-read for those looking for a precise and honest rendering of Trump's days in and around the Oval Office.

I just read the Bolton book, and it makes me afraid for the country. Not that I wasn't before, but it sharpens the edge on that worry when you can see it laid out so plainly. Interestingly, it made me less afraid of Trump being influenced by Putin, but more worried overall.      source
