#1 New York Times Bestseller

With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country—and the world—has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief.

This riveting and explosive account of Trump’s administration provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office, including:
-- What President Trump’s staff really thinks of him
-- What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama
-- Why FBI director James Comey was really fired
-- Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t be in the same room
-- Who is really directing the Trump administration’s strategy in the wake of Bannon’s firing
-- What the secret to communicating with Trump is
-- What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers

Never before in history has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.

“Essential reading.”—Michael D’Antonio, author of Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success, CNN.com

“Not since Harry Potter has a new book caught fire in this way...[Fire and Fury] is indeed a significant achievement, which deserves much of the attention it has received.”The Economist
“We won. Won in a landslide. This was a landslide.”
—President Donald J. Trump, January 6, 2021

We all witnessed some of the most shocking and confounding political events of our lifetime:
the careening last stage of Donald J. Trump’s reelection campaign, the president’s audacious
election challenge, the harrowing mayhem of January 6, the buffoonery of the second impeachment trial. But what was really going on in the inner sanctum of the White House during these calamitous events? What did the president and his dwindling cadre of loyalists actually believe? And what were they planning?

Michael Wolff pulled back the curtain on the Trump presidency with his #1 bestselling blockbuster Fire and Fury. Now, in Landslide, he closes the door on the presidency with a final, astonishingly candid account.

Wolff embedded himself in the White House in 2017 and gave us a vivid picture of the chaos that had descended on Washington. Almost four years later, Wolff finds the Oval Office even more chaotic and bizarre, a kind of Star Wars bar scene. At all times of the day, Trump, behind the Resolute desk, is surrounded by schemers and unqualified sycophants who spoon-feed him the “alternative facts” he hungers to hear—about COVID-19, Black Lives Matter protests, and, most of all, his chance of winning reelection. Once again, Wolff has gotten top-level access and takes us front row as Trump’s circle of plotters whittles down to the most enabling and the president reaches beyond the bounds of democracy as he entertains the idea of martial law and balks at calling off the insurrectionist mob that threatens the institution of democracy itself.

As the Trump presidency’s hold over the country spiraled out of control, an untold and human account of desperation, duplicity, and delusion was unfolding within the West Wing. Landslide is that story as only Michael Wolff can tell it.
Michael Wolff, author of the bombshell bestseller Fire and Fury, once again takes us inside the Trump presidency to reveal a White House under siege.

Just one year into Donald Trump’s term as president, Michael Wolff told the electrifying story of a White House consumed by controversy, chaos, and intense rivalries. Fire and Fury, an instant sensation, defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in Siege, Wolff has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side.

At the outset of Trump’s second year as president, his situation is profoundly different. No longer tempered by experienced advisers, he is more impulsive and volatile than ever. But the wheels of justice are inexorably turning: Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt” haunts Trump every day, and other federal prosecutors are taking a deep dive into his business affairs. Many in the political establishment—even some members of his own administration—have turned on him and are dedicated to bringing him down. The Democrats see victory at the polls, and perhaps impeachment, in front of them. Trump, meanwhile, is certain he is invincible, making him all the more exposed and vulnerable. Week by week, as Trump becomes increasingly erratic, the question that lies at the heart of his tenure becomes ever more urgent: Will this most abnormal of presidencies at last reach the breaking point and implode?

Both a riveting narrative and a brilliant front-lines report, Siege provides an alarming and indelible portrait of a president like no other. Surrounded by enemies and blind to his peril, Trump is a raging, self-destructive inferno—and the most divisive leader in American history.
If you can judge a book by its enemies, Too Famous could be an instant classic.

Bestselling author of Fire and Fury and chronicler of the Trump White House Michael Wolff dissects more of the major monsters, media whores, and vainglorious figures of our time. His scalpel opens their lives, careers, and always equivocal endgames with the same vividness and wit he brought to his disemboweling of the former president. These brilliant and biting profiles form a mesmerizing portrait of the hubris, overreach, and nearly inevitable self-destruction of some of the most famous faces from the Clinton era through the Trump years. When the mighty fall, they do it with drama and with a dust cloud of gossip.

This collection pulls from new and unpublished work—recent reporting about Tucker Carlson, Jared Kushner, Harvey Weinstein, Ronan Farrow, and Jeffrey Epstein—and twenty years of coverage of the most notable egomaniacs of the time—among them, Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Andrew Cuomo, Rudy Giuliani, Arianna Huffington, Roger Ailes, Boris Johnson, and Rupert Murdoch—creating a lasting statement on the corrosive influence of fame. Ultimately, this is an examination of how the quest for fame, notoriety, and power became the driving force of culture and politics, the drug that alters all public personalities. And how their need, their desperation, and their ruthlessness became the toxic grease that keeps the world spinning.

You know the people here by name and reputation, but it’s guaranteed that after this book you will never see them the same way again or fail to recognize the scorched earth the famous leave behind them.
"The closer the new media future gets, the further victory appears." --Michael Wolff

This is a book about what happens when the smartest people in the room decide something is inevitable, and yet it doesn’t come to pass. What happens when omens have been misread, tea leaves misinterpreted, gurus embarrassed?

Twenty years after the Netscape IPO, ten years after the birth of YouTube, and five years after the first iPad, the Internet has still not destroyed the giants of old media. CBS, News Corp, Disney, Comcast, Time Warner, and their peers are still alive, kicking, and making big bucks. The New York Times still earns far more from print ads than from digital ads. Super Bowl commercials are more valuable than ever. Banner ad space on Yahoo can be bought for a relative pittance.

Sure, the darlings of new media—Buzzfeed, HuffPoPolitico, and many more—keep attracting ever more traffic, in some cases truly phenomenal traffic. But as Michael Wolff shows in this fascinating and sure-to-be-controversial book, their buzz and venture financing rounds are based on assumptions that were wrong from the start, and become more wrong with each passing year. The consequences of this folly are far reaching for anyone who cares about good journalism, enjoys bingeing on Netflix, works with advertising, or plans to have a role in the future of the Internet.

Wolff set out to write an honest guide to the changing media landscape, based on a clear-eyed evaluation of who really makes money and how. His conclusion: The Web, social media, and various mobile platforms are not the new television. Television is the new television.

We all know that Google and Facebook are thriving by selling online ads—but they’re aggregators, not content creators. As major brands conclude that banner ads next to text basically don’t work, the value of digital traffic to content-driven sites has plummeted, while the value of a television audience continues to rise. Even if millions now watch television on their phones via their Netflix, Hulu, and HBO GO apps, that doesn’t change the balance of power. Television by any other name is the game everybody is trying to win—including outlets like The Wall Street Journal that never used to play the game at all.

Drawing on his unparalleled sources in corner offices from Rockefeller Center to Beverly Hills, Wolff tells us what’s really going on, which emperors have no clothes, and which supposed geniuses are due for a major fall. Whether he riles you or makes you cheer, his book will change how you think about media, technology, and the way we live now.

»En bok som bekräftar vad de flesta redan har förstått: Att Trump inte bara är helt olämplig som president, utan att alla runt honom också vet om det.« Michelle Goldberg, New York Times

Donald Trumps första tid i Vita huset var häpnadsväckande och fylld till brädden av skandaler. Med draghjälp av presidentens »allierade« i Vita husets västra flygel skildrar den grävande journalisten Michael Wolff hur Donald Trump skapade ett presidentskap lika labilt, glödande och vansinnigt som han själv.

Bland avslöjandena:

Vad som fick Trump att tro att han var avlyssnad av Barack Obama.
Vem av Trumps närmaste medarbetare som kallar honom »en idiot omgiven av clowner«.
Vad Trumpadministrationen har gemensamt med filmen Det våras för Hitler.
Varför Melania Trump grät när hennes make vann valet.
Varför FBI-chefen James Comey egentligen fick sparken.
Varför chefsstrategen Steve Bannon kallar Trumps son »landsförrädare«.
Hur (dåligt) det gick när Trump skulle lära sig den amerikanska konstitutionen.

»Michael Wolff lyckas fånga dynamiken mellan Donald Trump och tidigare chefsstrategen Steve Bannon, och de etniska och religiösa dispyterna mellan Vita husets medarbetare. Oumbärlig läsning. Drar undan de få gardiner som fortfarande finns för Trump och Vita huset.« The Guardian

»Michael Wolff har tecknat en bild av en administration präglad av en inkompetens och okunnighet som saknar motstycke i amerikansk historia.« Martin Gelin, DN
AV FÖRFATTAREN TILL DEN MILJONSÄLJANDE SUCCÉN FIRE AND FURY
När Fire & Fury: Donald Trump & Vita huset inifrån publicerades kippade världen efter andan. Journalisten Michael Wolffs skildring av en labil president och dennes första år som commander-in-chief detonerade med full kraft. Trump blev rasande, upplagorna enorma.
Under belägring: Trump i skottlinjen tar vid där den förra boken slutar. Den forne affärsmannen och tv-profilen attackeras nu från alla håll. Donald Trump har gjort sig av med sina politiskt erfarna rådgivare – ett drag som gör honom mer impulsiv och oförutsägbar än någonsin. En stor del av det politiska etablissemanget, liksom medlemmar av Trumps egen administration, har övergett honom. Omgiven av fiender, men fullt övertygad om att han är oövervinnerlig, förvandlas Donald Trump till ett rasande, destruktivt inferno.
Under belägring: Trump i skottlinjen rapporterar direkt från fronten. Ett alarmerande och oförglömligt porträtt av en president som inte liknar någon annan.

Michael Wolff kertoo sisäpiirin tarinan aikamme kiistellyimmästä presidentistä

Donald Trumpin virkakauden ensimmäiset yhdeksän kuukautta olivat myrskyisää, räävitöntä ja hypnoottisen kiinnostavaa aikaa. Bestsellerkirjailija Michael Wolff sai poikkeukselliset mahdollisuudet haastatella Länsisiiven sisäpiiriläisiä. Wolff kertoo mukaansatempaavan tarinan siitä, kuinka Trump aloitti presidenttikauden, joka on aivan yhtä tulinen ja arvaamaton kuin mies itse.

Kirjassa Wolff valottaa yksityiskohtaisesti Valkoisen talon kaaosta. Kirja paljastaa muun muassa, mitä alaiset oikeasti ajattelevat presidentti Trumpista, mikä sai Trumpin syyttämään presidentti Obamaa salakuuntelusta, mikä oli todellinen syy FBI:n johtajan James Comeyn irtisanomiseen, miksi päästrategi Steve Bannon ja Trumpin vävy Jared Kushner eivät voineet olla samassa huoneessa ja kuka varsinaisesti johtaa Trumpin hallinnon strategiaa Bannonin irtisanomisen jälkeen. Yksikään aiempi presidentti ei ole jakanut Yhdysvaltain kansaa näin jyrkästi kahteen leiriin. Michael Wolffin hätkähdyttävä ja journalistisesti ansiokas teos näyttää, miten ja miksi Donald Trumpista on tullut eripuran ja vastakkainasettelun kuningas.

Michael Wolff on saanut työstään lukuisia palkintoja, muun muassa kaksi National Magazine Awardia. Hän on toiminut kolumnistina lehdissä Vanity Fair, New York, Hollywood Reporter, GQ (Iso-Britannia), USA Today ja Guardian ja kirjoittanut useita kirjoja. Hän asuu Manhattanilla.

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Sozialpädagogik / Sozialarbeit, Note: 1,7, Universität Vechta; früher Hochschule Vechta, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Erlebnispädagogik wird häufig als Urlaub und Freizeitspaß missverstanden. Vor allem in Medien wird ein Bild produziert, das den Anschein macht, als würden aufsässige Jugendliche für ihr Verhalten mit einer individuellen Reise in ein fernes Land belohnt. Allerdings scheint es so, als wüssten die Produzenten solcher Bilder nichts über die Wirkweise einer solchen Maßnahme. In dieser Arbeit wird dem Leser vermittelt, welche Modelle für erlebnispädagogische Settings bestehen und was es für eine erfolgreiche Maßnahme zu beachten gilt. Darüber hinaus werden gesellschaftliche Strukturen analysiert, die dazu beitragen, deviantes Verhalten auftreten zu lassen. Anhand dieser Analyse wird erkennbar, warum gerade die Erlebnispädagogik so viel Förderpotential besitzt in der Arbeit mit devianten Jugendlichen. Eine mögliche Definition lautet: „Erlebnispädagogik ist eine handlungsorientierte Methode und will durch exemplarische Lernprozesse, in denen junge Menschen vor physische, psychische und soziale Herausforderungen gestellt werden, diese in ihrer Persönlichkeitsentwicklung fördern und sie dazu befähigen, ihre Lebenswelt verantwortlich zu gestalten“ (Heckmair/Michl 2004, S. 102). Eine einheitliche Definition gibt es zwar bislang noch nicht, aber diese Definition beschreibt sehr gut worauf es bei den Maßnahmen ankommt und auch welchen Anspruch Erlebnispädagogen/innen an sich selbst stellen. Einer der großen Vordenker der Erlebnispädagogik ist Jean Jaques Rousseau, der im 18. Jahrhundert lebte. Er entwickelte die Idee der Minimalerziehung. Hierbei sollte ein Erzieher lediglich dafür zuständig sein, äußere Einflüsse von seinem Zögling fern zu halten. Er wollte somit erreichen, dass das Fehlverhalten und die Konsequenz daraus für den Zögling unmittelbar spürbar sind (vgl. ebd., S. 18). Außerdem sollte der Zögling alles was für ihn relevant ist zu erfahren auch selbst erleben und es nicht beigebracht bekommen. Bei einer Wanderung mit einer Gruppe Jugendlicher könnte dieses Prinzip so aussehen: Die Jugendlichen wandern ihres Weges und vergessen dabei sich um neue Nahrung zu kümmern. Der Betreuer lässt sie einfach weiter wandern, obwohl er die Problematik bereits bemerkt hat. Wenn die Jugendlichen später feststellen, dass sie keine Nahrung mit sich tragen und die ganze Nacht mit hungrigen Bäuchen verbringen, wird ihnen dieser Fehler wahrscheinlich nicht noch einmal passieren. Sie würden somit lernen ihren Tagesablauf sorgfältiger zu organisieren.
