New York, NY, July 31, 2018—Simon & Schuster will publish FEAR: Trump in the White House by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author Bob Woodward on September 11, 2018, it was announced today.
With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside Donald Trump’s White House and how the president makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Drawing from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, contemporaneous meeting notes, files, documents and personal diaries, FEAR brings to light the explosive debates that drive decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence.
“Fear is the most acute and penetrating portrait of a sitting president ever published during the first years of an administration,” said Jonathan Karp, President and Publisher of Simon & Schuster. “This is the inside story on President Trump as only Bob Woodward can tell it.”
Bob Woodward is an associate editor at The Washington Post, where he has worked for 47 years. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first for the Post’s coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein, and second in 2003 as the lead reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. FEAR is Woodward’s 19th book with Simon & Schuster, beginning with All the President’s Men in 1974. Each of the previous 18 books he authored or co-authored has been a national nonfiction bestseller.
