Rage Book Review

Journalism at its core, is supposed to be non-partisan and non-political. But sometimes, those who work in that industry have no choice but to be partisan and political. Especially when the future is at stake.

The new book by respected journalist Bob Woodward, Rage, was released back in the fall. The follow up to his 2019 book, Fear: Trump in the White House, the reader is taken into a world and a presidency that few have ever seen. Using 17 on the record interviews as the back bone of the narrative, the man he portrays on the page is arrogant, in denial, and believes that he knows it all.

Reading this book, I thought I had a good idea of the man whom we unfortunately refer to as President. I could feel a chill down my back as I delved into the story. Between his inability to stop the destruction that Covid-19 is wreaking on us and the delusional idea that he will have another 4 years in office, it was as if I was reading a fictional political thriller.

The one thing I was struck by is that not everyone who works or worked in the administration is either related to him or got the job by becoming a brownnoser. There were and still are many who genuinely believe in the work they are doing because they understand the importance of this country and the constitution.

Do I recommend it? Absolutely.
