09 Sep Bob Woodward Author of Rage and Speaker
Bob Woodward author of Rage, long time journalist, and sought-after keynote speaker
Bob Woodward’s new book Rage is on it’s way and causing a stir across all media platforms. His personal conversations with DC insiders and the president himself make Bob a national treasure and the ultimate insider you can bring to your group to speak on the lessons of inside the beltway.
Bob Woodward is a journalistic icon who gained international attention when he and Carl Bernstein broke the deeply disturbing news of the Watergate scandal. The book they wrote – “All the President’s Men” – won a Pulitzer Prize.
Watergate’s theme of secret government is a common thread throughout Woodward’s career that spawned 18 books – all of which went on to become national bestsellers – 13 of them #1 – more than any other contemporary nonfiction author. In the process, Woodward became the ultimate inside man. He has the skill to get insiders to open up – both on the record and off the record – in ways that reveal an intimate yet sweeping portrayal of Washington. His work is meticulous and draws on internal memos, classified documents, meeting notes and hundreds of hours of interviews with most of the key players, including the president.
In 2018, Woodward published his expose of the Trump presidency, “Fear: Trump in the White House.” The book is based on hundreds of hours of interviews with people in Trump’s administration. It sold 1.1 million copies in its first week of release, making it the fastest selling opener for any book in Simon & Schuster history.
Rage goes behind the scenes like never before, with stunning new details about early national security decisions and operations and Trump’s moves as he faces a global pandemic, economic disaster and racial unrest.
Woodward, the #1 internationally bestselling author of 13 #1 bestsellers, including Fear: Trump in the White House, shows Trump up close in his entirety before the 2020 presidential election.
President Trump has said publicly that Woodward has interviewed him. What is not known is that Trump provided Woodward a window into his mind through a series of exclusive interviews.
At key decision points, Rage shows how Trump’s responses to the crises of 2020 were rooted in the instincts, habits and style he developed during his first three years as president.
Rage draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand witnesses, as well as participants’ notes, emails, diaries, calendars and confidential documents.
Woodward obtained 25 personal letters exchanged between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that have not been public before. Kim describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a “fantasy film,” as the two leaders engage in an extraordinary diplomatic minuet.
Rage will be the foundational account of the Trump presidency, its turmoil, contradictions and risks. It is an essential document for any voter seeking an accurate inside view of the Trump years—volatile and vivid.
