PositiveThe Washington PostAs much as you think you know about the arrogance, vanity and sheer incompetence of Trump’s years in the White House, Bolton’s account will still astonish you ... He seems to have collated every Trump rant, reckless phone call and muttered aside. No wonder the White House was so determined to block this book: It eviscerates Trump’s foreign policy record and exposes him, in Bolton’s words, as \'stunningly uninformed\' ... The great achievement of this book is that it links the Ukraine fiasco to Trump’s other foreign policy misdeeds ... snarky literary asides scattered throughout the book ... Bolton offers a damning review of nearly every theater of Trump’s foreign policy ... Bolton dishes dirt about everyone he doesn’t like, and it’s a very long list ... Bolton is the hero of nearly every anecdote in the book. Indeed, for a memoir that is startlingly candid about many things, Bolton’s utter lack of self-criticism is one of the book’s significant shortcomings ... Many previous books have revealed Trump’s bizarre machinations and musings, but none so damagingly as this one by a conservative former supporter ... This book ought to be a wake-up call, finally, to Republicans who have slavishly defended Trump and belittled his critics.
