    So why haven’t I read other high-profile books, by people “on the inside”? Precisely for that reason: they’re too close to the action; too likely to have biases, either for or against the subject. Bob Woodward is different. He’s not on the inside - but has so many inside contacts that you know he knows who to talk to. And he has decades of integrity, so you know that he won’t write something unless he firmly believes it is true - and verified. And this book proves it. It presents the facts, from all sides, without making judgements. Through a series of vignettes, covering at least ten years of history in various significant people’s lives, he provides minute details that must have come from those same people. Their conversations, their thoughts, their beliefs: it is a fascinating look behind the usually superficial stories that hit the headlines and our screens with little background. As well as the events, Woodward also reveals the personalities of many of the key players. Most are driven, with definite unswayable beliefs and huge energy to influence others to their views - counterpointed by Trump, who seems to have only one belief: money. Where money isn’t involved, he seems to have no resolute motivations, and can easily be convinced to a point of view - and then vacillate when the next advisor offers a different one. Yet Woodward portrays Trump to be a more complex personality than I suspected. More human: “That’s pretty cold,” he said, referring to a horrific proposal made by Senator Lindsay Graham. More open to discussion: as long as it isn’t one of his “third rails” (immigration or the press). And much more conniving... But the main thesis of this book, already made clear before its release, is that we as outsiders need to be worried about what is happening inside the White House. Whether you believe the problem is Trump’s volatility, or that his “support” staff are undemocratic, the problem truly exists. Bob Woodward has brought it out into the open. Now: what are we going to do about it?
