Not sure what anyone found in this book that had any value whatsoever. Wolff starts of his book with denigration after denigration of anyone who had anything to do with Trump, including Trump. Maybe most of those who made comments don't know how to read political books? But, when a political book starts off with the writer denigrating his subject you know to stop reading the book, let alone buy a bunhc of worthless trash.
Wolff also began by making outlandish statements that Trump and his team knew they were going to lose, and you could just feel the venom come off of Wolff's lips at that stage. Funny thing on election night I said to anyone who would listen "Trump was going to win the election and win it handily" which he did. Wolff obviously was clueless about why Trump was going to win and shows it in how writes about Trump losing. No doubt Wolff was terry eyed when his favourite Hillary did not win. I have a map of Trump's win showing that the Democrats are not only poor losers, but they lied after the election to say she won the popular vote. It was liberal inspired rubbish.
Wolff's book isn't worth reading unless your some kind of whiny liberal. I gave up reading this trash when his denigrating commentary and his accusations, insinuations and allegations just became to much to bear. Hillary's book "What Happened" was something even worse as she says she takes full blame for losing, but then blamed everyone else. Well that's what every narcissist does when they lose, anyway. Her taking full blame was just laughable. Liberalism is where garbage books like these two come from. You can't trust liberals or liberalism to ever tell the truth about anything. We have our own Canadian narcissist leader in Justin Trudeau. Would anyone believe in anything he wrote?

Interesting read. Not many surprises but fills in a lot of gaps. Provides solid (and fairly unknown/obscure) background on the various players. Gets a little tedious and/or rambling in places. Full of fairly challenging (but info-packed) lengthy run on sentences (Wolff has an "interesting" writing style). A few editing mistakes (probably because of the rush to publication). A sudden and abrupt ending that doesn't seem apropos to anything (other than Bannon's ousting). But worth the read.

What's wasted, "Adolf Online", is perfectly good oxygen going into your barely literate, inbred, alt-right, white trash, trailer park, permanently pissed off, gullible body. People with working brains need oxygen, and all you're doing is wasting it.

Awesome book. Just shows how fickle and unreliable this person is. Kind of worrisome that most of the hatred and bigotry portrayed in media was not Trump's but was directed by Bannon. Would've been different situation had Trump been little smart and advised by the sensible, rational and fair person

Definitely worth reading! Reads like a novel almost, holds your interest like nothing I've read in that it's about real people in real time "trying" to run a government they know nothing about! Glad I didn't vote (for either candidate) in this election, (threw away my vote in other words) b/c you may have to live with "it", don't have to VOTE for it!

Garbage. Even cnn though so.

It's about Steve Bannon as much as it's about Trump. The whole book should be taken with a grain or two of salt but it offers some insights into some of the less outspoken members of the Trump team.

Illustrated by this quote, don't believe everything you hear, read and sometimes see (Part 1 of 2):
“Do you condemn the actions of neo-Nazis? Do you condemn the actions of white supremacists?”

Some ninety minutes later he stood in the Diplomatic Reception Room, his eyes locked on to the teleprompter, and delivered a six-minute statement. Before getting to the point: “Our economy is now strong. The stock market continues to hit record highs, unemployment is at a sixteen-year low, and businesses are more optimistic than ever before. Companies are moving back to the United States and bringing many thousands of jobs with them. We have already created over one million jobs since I took office.”

Illustrated by this quote, don't believe everything you hear, read and sometimes see (Part 2 of 2):

And only then: “We must love each other, show affection for each other and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry and violence. . . . We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. . . . Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

It was a reluctant mini-grovel. It was something of a restaging of the take-it-back birther speech about Obama during the campaign: much distraction and obfuscation, then a mumbled acknowledgment.
