The instant #1 bestseller.

“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, D.C., Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker reveal the forty-fifth 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.

    Reading this was like getting a peak behind the curtains to see what was going on behind the scenes of some very well publicized historic events.

  • Insider truth from the madhouse

    By peterdunn
    Explains in detail why an old white man could use the power of the most powerful position in the world to feed his ego while constantly complaining about his paranoid victimization. Too bad that the fear of a madman would keep his staff from guiding him properly and that after 4 years, a corrupt family can do no more than line their own pockets. This isn’t opinion, it’s truth from the sources.
  • One star is too many

    By Kokadjo1901
    The only “positive”about this pile of rubbish is that I didn’t buy it. Save yourself time and money because this rag is predictable and filled with nothing but propaganda. Also, it certainly hasn’t aged well because the truth about the remarkable success of the Trump Administration is crystal clear when compared to the Biden crime family. Biden is a political hack, racist and is creepy around young girls. Oh, let’s not forget the credible accusation of rape. Hunter is a criminal loser and without the help of willing co-conspirators ( like the authors of this book), the lying Bidens would be behind bars. We the People are awake now and see books like this one for their pathetic attempt to rewrite history. You have overplayed your hands. Many of the big revelations of this book are already proven false. President Trump won the 2020 election in a landslide because the radical left cheated BIGLY. ARIZONA is the first to confirm proof of massive fraud. Audits will be completed across America and Trump will be the proven winner. We all know it. The dems know it, which is why they are trying to obstruct justice. 😳 January 6 was a set up by our government- the facts are there for all to see. So, write your silly little books and be prepared to have them debunked. The Patriots of the USA have awakened and we are watching.

    By Harleygirl70

  • Stable Genuis

    By nurseandmedicalpersonnel
    Excellent book. Trump is a moron and now the way he isn’t handling this Covid-19 crisis makes me even more certain that he truly fits the definition of a Narcissist. He needs to climb back up his golden elevator and away from the American people.
  • Garbage book

    By Yankees5825
    Awful book. Just another liberal sore loser with Trump derangement syndrome. This book is all false, and all it does it spew hate. This book is FAKE NEWS. Waste of time and money!! Don’t waste your money on this trash. The author should be ashamed of himself for writing this pathetic excuse for a book.
  • Incredible Judicial Account

    By Grace k heisler
    This book absolutely blew my mind. It is such an eye opening look into the past 4 years under DJT. For many people who struggle to weigh in on the issues and media coverage regarding the legalities regarding DJT, the findings (or lack thereof) established in the Mueller Report, and the Ukrainian quid pro quo, Rucker and Leonning have brilliantly organized the collective facts from sources within and close to the adminstration. As someone whose career revolves around political science and civic duties, I highly recommend every American of eligible voting age to read this book before they vote in this year’s election.
