An unprecedented behind-the-scenes portrait of the Trump presidency from the anonymous senior official whose first words of warning about the president rocked the nation's capital.

On September 5, 2018, the New York Times published a bombshell essay and took the rare step of granting its writer anonymity. Described only as "a senior official in the Trump administration," the author provided eyewitness insight into White House chaos, administration instability, and the people working to keep Donald Trump's reckless impulses in check.

With the 2020 election on the horizon, Anonymous is speaking out once again. In this book, the original author pulls back the curtain even further, offering a first-of-its-kind look at the president and his record -- a must-read before Election Day. It will surprise and challenge both Democrats and Republicans, motivate them to consider how we judge our nation's leaders, and illuminate the consequences of re-electing a commander in chief unfit for the role.

This book is a sobering assessment of the man in the Oval Office and a warning about something even more important -- who we are as a people.


  • Scholarly, analytic, realpolitik--a breath of fresh air!

    By Ms. Hush Puppy
    A passionate writer providing dispassionate and historical analysis of how America has become more crude, more divided and less able to move forward with rational analyses to better support our balance of power as it was intended by the Framers. Amazing discussions of what has happened, questioning why & speculating on the future. Can you get a Pulitzer if you are Anonymous? I hope so!
  • Great Book You Must Read

    By snewocnhoj
    There are trumpians here giving this book a poor rating because they did NOT read it and refuse to accept the truth. They simply support their corrupt Republican leadership more than the welfare of our weakening country. This book reveals how incompetent Trump is and how his staff try to repair his lies, bullying, misinformation, and ignorance. It also reveals the chaos, obstruction, and coverups of the worst President in U.S. history. Furthermore, it reveals how Trump instills fear in his staff, advisors, and republican members of Congress, or be fired, bullied and harassed relentlessly. 37 of Trump’s staff have been indicted, 6 convicted, and 6 jailed. 24 members of Trump’s team have resigned in protest to Trump’s incompetence.

    If you’re not willing to put your name out there I’m not willing to believe anything that you write. Anonymous is reserved for Fiction, if you can’t be questioned you should be in the Fiction section...or the Fake News section.
  • Self serving

    Self serving buyer’s remorse.
  • Hastily written....

    ...and it shows. Most of the incidents reported in this book are already well reported. Not much new about Trump to be found in its pages. I find it troubling that the authors chooses to remain anonymous. He (or possibly she) even made a comment about mistrusting a report that is issued anonymously.
  • The last chapter is the best. Let’s roll.

    Much of this book is already known to Americans who have been paying close attention to Trump’s presidency. I particularly appreciated the end of the book that speaks of the hope that exists for Americans - if we can muster the strength - to join together and reclaim our nation’s ideals. Let’s roll, indeed.
  • Excellent Read

    By Bubbagirl73
    Verifies what any observant, intelligent American has been seeing with their own eyes. I understand coming forth as Anonymous with the type of environment that has developed under this President. Pass the book around!

    I was pretty much seething with anger throughout most of the book. I have developed an abhorrence to this administration, but the author does a good job of catching that and rationalizing a move forward. We the electorate truly need to come together for the safety and success of this country in 2020 and put someone competent, deserving, and ethical in office.
