Publisher's Summary

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"The most important thing that has been written to date about what is in front of the American people in the next presidential election."—Nicolle Wallace

An extraordinary view into the politics of our times, Tired of Winning explores how Donald Trump remade the Republican Party in his own image—and the wreckage he’s left in his wake.

Packed with new reporting, Tired of Winning: Donald Trump and the End of the Grand Old Party tracks Trump’s improbable journey from disgraced and defeated former president to the dominant force, yet again, in the Republican Party.

From his exile in Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump has become more extreme, vengeful, and divorced from reality than he was on January 6, 2021. His meddling damaged the GOP’s electoral prospects for third consecutive election in 2022. His legal troubles are mounting. Yet he re-emerged as the frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

Jonathan Karl has known Donald Trump since his days as a New York Post reporter in the 1990s, and he covered every day of Trump’s administration as ABC News’s chief White House correspondent. No one is in a better position to detail the former president’s quest for retribution and provide a glimpse at what the GOP would be signing up for if it once again chooses him as its standard bearer.

In 1964, Ronald Reagan told Americans it was “a time for choosing.” Sixty years later, Republicans have their own choice to make: Are they tired of winning?

Critic Reviews

THE INSTANT NATIONAL BESTSELLER

Featured in Vanity Fair’s Books to Read in November

One of the Associated Press' Most Anticipated Books of the Fall

Tired of Winning… is the most important thing that has been written to date about what is in front of the American people in the next presidential election.” Nicolle Wallace

"Tired of Winning should be required reading before voting in 2024." Bill Press, The Hill

Tired of Winning is worth reading. It is well-paced, meticulously sourced and amply footnoted. Karl’s third installment on the Trump presidency and aftermath shines a needed light on how the Republican party has been recast and reshaped.” —The Guardian

Continuation of a known story

If you follow the news there will be little additions. Nevertheless, the journalist is able to give us insights unknown so far such as people involve in stories and what they bring to the plot. The writer is also the reader and that is a good thing because is tone follows the script.

it's great but nothing new..?

Enjoyable listen and the author is an excellent journalist but I didn't feel that the narrative offered a new take on the subject.

Still, I enjoyed reliving recent moments of our shared nightmare.
