Review: Rage


Rage by Bob Woodward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Excellent, in-depth journalistic take on the Trump presidency. Unlike Woodward's first Trump book Fear, this one includes interviews with Trump and background information you likely haven't heard elsewhere. The book wraps up in the July 2020 timeframe.

A good portion of the book covers the COVID-19 pandemic and Trump's response to it. There are good things that Woodward reports here, that you might not have heard of, or just have forgotten. Which would be understandable given the overwhelming disorganization of the government response, and Trump's rush, in his concerns over his re-election, to declare victory, leading him to resist and contradict the advice of the CDC and NIH.

There is also quite a bit on the death of George Floyd, the protests, and Black Lives Matter. All of this part of the book serves to highlight Trump's tone-deaf (or worse) response.

A pretty quick read and worth your time.

I rate Rage Five Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.
