Summary

Summary

#1 New York Times bestseller

A New York Times Pick of Books to Watch for This Month

A #1 Amazon.com bestseller in Politics and Social Sciences 

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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This tell-all book by an anonymous author paints a dire picture of President Donald Trump’s presidency.” USA Today
“A tell-all…Anonymous is passing the baton to ‘voters and their elected representatives’—only now the baton is a flaming stick of dynamite. A Warning, then, is just that: a warning, for those who need it, that electing Mr. Trump to a second term would be courting disaster.” New York Times
“Paints a chilling portrait of the president as cruel, inept, and a danger to the nation he was elected to lead…The author argues that Trump is incapable of leading the United States through a monumental international crisis, describing how he tunes out intelligence and national security briefings and theorizing that foreign adversaries see him as ‘a simplistic pushover’ who is susceptible to flattery and easily manipulated.” Washington Post
“This slim volume is the author’s mea culpa, projected well past personal apology to the sounding of a national alarm…Here is the near-total absence of gossip and the sustained presence of surprisingly high-minded, intellectual discussion. The author justifies being anonymous by citing the American icons who published newspaper op-eds supporting ratification of the Constitution in the 1780s using the shared pen name of Publius. (Their real names were Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay.)” NPR
“A brisk, page-turning critique of the president.” Publishers Weekly
