By Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. The transition from President Donald J. Trump to President Joseph R. Biden Jr. stands as one of the most dangerous periods in American history. But as # 1 internationally bestselling author Bob Woodward and acclaimed reporter Robert Costa reveal for the first time, it was far more than just a domestic political crisis. This classic study of Washington takes readers deep inside the Trump White House, the Biden White House, the 2020 campaign, and the Pentagon and Congress, with vivid, eyewitness accounts of what really happened.
With never-before-seen material from secret orders, transcripts of confidential calls, diaries, and other personal and government records, making for an unparalleled history, it is also the first inside look at Bidenís presidency as he faces the challenges of a lifetime: a continuing deadly pandemic and millions of Americans facing soul-crushing economic pain, all the while navigating a bitter and disabling partisan divide, a world rife with threats, and the hovering, dark shadow of the former president. Simon & Schuster (2021), English, 512 pages.
