Synopsis

THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER



'It's all here in this stunning first draft of the history of the presidency of Donald Trump' Sydney Morning Herald



First came Fire and Fury to sound the alarm, then came Fear to spread unease, now A Very Stable Genius lifts the lid to bring us the full account.



Drawing on nearly three years of reporting, hundreds of hours of interviews and more than two hundred sources, including some of the most senior members of the administration, friends and first-hand witnesses who have never spoken before, Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig take us inside some of the most controversial moments of Trump's presidency. They peer deeply into Trump's White House - at the aides pressured to lie to the public, the lawyers scrambling to clear up norm-breaking disasters, and the staffers whose careers have been reduced to ashes - to paint an unparalleled group portrait of an administration driven by self-preservation and paranoia.



Rucker and Leonnig reveal Trump at his most unvarnished, showing the unhinged decision-making and incompetence that has floored officials and stunned foreign leaders. They portray unscripted calls with Vladimir Putin, steak dinners with Kim Jong-un, and calls with Theresa May so hostile that they left her aides shaken. They also take a hard look at Robert Mueller, Trump's greatest antagonist to date, and how his investigation slowly unravelled an administration whose universal value is loyalty - not to country, but to the president himself.



Grippingly told, A Very Stable Genius is a behind-the-scenes account of Trump's vainglorious pursuit of power in his first term - the rages and the frenzies, the dishonesty and the depravity - as he dodges impeachment, and squares up for the 2020 elections.



'Taut and terrifying . . . It reads like a horror story, an almost comic immorality tale' New York Times



'In often alarming detail, A Very Stable Genius chronicles the wild ride of the Trump presidency' Guardian



'A damning, well-reported, well-sourced and clearly written haymaker' Sunday Times



'There are brilliant flashes of insights and voices that have yet to be heard in the presidential cacophony' Financial Times



'Takes us behind the scenes of the Trump presidency, where we learn that the private Trump is - if you can believe it - even worse than what you see every day' Washington Post

Carol Leonnig is a national investigative reporter at the Washington Post, where she has worked since 2000 and covers Donald Trump's presidency and other subjects. She won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for her reporting on security failures and misconduct inside the Secret Service. She also was part of the Post teams awarded Pulitzers in 2017, for reporting on Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, and in 2014, for revealing the U.S. government's secret, broad surveillance of Americans. Philip Rucker is the White House Bureau Chief at the Washington Post, leading its coverage of President Trump and his administration. He and a team of Post reporters won the Pulitzer Prize and George Polk Award for their reporting on Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election. Rucker joined the Post in 2005 and previously has covered Congress, the Obama White House and the 2012 and 2016 presidential campaigns.
