Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author of Fire and Fury and Siege completes the trilogy on the epic presidency of Donald J. Trump. 

With Fire and Fury, Wolff defined the first phase of the Trump administration; in Siege, he wrote an explosive account of a presidency under fire. In Landslide, Wolff closes the story of Trump's four years in office and his tumultuous last months at the helm of the country, based on Wolff's extraordinary access to White House aides and to the former president himself, yielding a wealth of new information and insights about what really happened inside the highest office in the land, and the world.

Fascinating insights

Glimpses into an unfolding situation involving a self centred, lonely, narcissist who surrounded himself with sycophants, traitors, desperates, social climbers and greedy self serving cockadoodles. It is horrifyingly fascinating but ultimately a great story.

Worth reading

I have read a lot of Micheal Wolff political books about trump and enjoyed them, this was no exception.
An enlightening account of the goings on inside the White House & amongst Trumps cronies during the lead up & after the 2020 election

Scary stuff

There's pretty much two (very polarised) views on Trump by now. The view that he's an awful and incompetent person is one, and on the (diminishing) flipside, there are still people turning mental gymnastics in order to justify and re-author a narrative where he's competent.
I evidently fall in the first camp, but it's still hard to find the line between these two sides where the truth sits.
In this book Wolff has seemingly sourced a wealth of first hand material, and it's very illuminating and scary stuff. He doesn't try to pretend he's an impartial party, which both detracts a little from the book but also gives it a lift through some really barbed observations.
If even a portion of this book is accurate, we should all probably consider ourselves lucky that things weren't worse. By the end days the only people left were the panderers and maneuverers trying to ring the last drops of money and fame from this broken administration.
Sadly, this book will be preaching to the choir - I can't imagine a Trump fan finishing this book, or even starting it. Overall, worth a listen. At the very least you can be certain that it's not your normal, slightly dry political memoir - it's utterly bananas at times.

a horror tale and a fantastic listen

I am only unsure of the Jan 6 run up. I am sure he researched it well, and the author's take is plausible but the evidence we all saw of the event, particularly Jr's selfie video of the party-like excitement of the Trump family backstage before the speech sending the mob to the Capitol, indicates that they all hoped for the results the got. no one gets that giddy over a normal speech. they knew and must have had more involvement than this book suggests.

Delightfully grim and snipey

Michael Wolff’s trilogy of books on the Trump presidency are energetic, engaging and filled with memorable and audacious anecdotes. Landslide is a more than worthy conclusion to these accounts and more jaw-dropping than the others.

Fire and Fury saw Wolff receiving unwise access to the White House, and Siege had him relying on inside sources due to the fallout from publication of the first. Landslide sees Wolff ultimately in conversation with the man himself in addition to the sources he has on the inside.

It’s hard to tell if Wolff is writing the book as a way of airing personal grievances (such as Lord Ashcroft’s biography of David Cameron) or simply a keen sense of journalistic seediness abs spectacle. It almost certainly is not out of a sense of ethical or moral compunction. But whatever the case it comes across as catty but entirely plausible if you’ve followed the news during the presidency. But either way it makes it a far easier read (or listen) than Woodward’s Rage which feels more professional and balanced, but dull.

We are taken from the election, to the election loss to the capitol riots and the bumbling legal fallout, ending with Trump settling into life at Mar-a-lago. It’s detailed and comprehensive with some shocking if unsurprising revelations. It’s maybe not 100% reliable, but it’s definitely amusing and believable.

The performance is acceptable and quite expressive, though it feels like occasionally there is a misinterpretation of some of the direct quotes. Whatever the case, it keeps your attention even if the narrative doesn’t, which it will.

Very detailed on the background to the election

I've got the other two books Wolff has done on Trup and I'd say this one is the best. It will be interesting how this holds up against the other books on Trump that are coming out over the next few months.

Perfect match of author and narrator

A true guilty treat of a listen, with a sensational read by Holter Graham. While much of the material is broadly familiar to your average US political junkie, it’s the mind-boggling detail and in-the-room vibe that lifts this account. And the whole Impeachment 2 saga is a priceless piece of comic writing. I also appreciate that Wolff is so resolutely not po-faced - he’s having faaaaar too much fun to start wringing his hands. I mean yes Trump is palpably mad, but he’s also fathomlessly entertaining. Still - please don’t elect him again!

Voice from the sample is not the narrator

The book is not bad but a bad thing is that after listening to a sample I decided to purchase the book, only to realize later that the voice from the sample is not the one narrating the book. Not a good strategy for an audio book. Voice is everything here.

After this, read Ian Kershaw

"Hitler, the Germans and the Final Solution."

Trumps playbook is amazing, considering that he doesn`t read books. The similarity to
the strategy of Hitler in the twenties and thirties is incredibly and equally scaring.
"Fake charisma" is dangerous and the final solution may be catastrophic.

Riveting

Even though I thought I knew the story this telling held me riveted. The insertion of actual recordings of Trump’s speeches was masterful

A Crazy Story

This audible book mixes the narration with clips of (Ex ) President Trump speaking. It is an excellent tale of the 2020 US Presidential election and Donald Trump's attempt to prove he had actually won. The author describes the bizarre timeline where Trump really thought he could prove his win and comically described all the eccentric characters( mainly lawyers) who "helped" . A crazy period in American politics ,they will hopefully never be repeated

Has to be read to be believed. Rudy Giuliani in.

Superb additions to the Trump cannon. Really well read and paints a picture of what happens when lunatics take over the asylum.
