Description

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.

Woodward and Costa interviewed more than 200 people at the center of the turmoil, resulting in more than 6,000 pages of transcripts—and a spellbinding and definitive portrait of a nation on the brink.

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.

Peril is supplemented throughout with never-before-seen material from secret orders, transcripts of confidential calls, diaries, emails, meeting notes and other personal and government records, making for an unparalleled history.

It is also the first inside look at Biden’s presidency as he faces the challenges of a lifetime: the 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.

“We have much to do in this winter of peril,” Biden declared at his inauguration, an event marked by a nerve-wracking security alert and the threat of domestic terrorism.

Peril is the extraordinary story of the end of one presidency and the beginning of another, and represents the culmination of Bob Woodward’s news-making trilogy on the Trump presidency, along with Fear and Rage. And it is the beginning of a collaboration with fellow Washington Post reporter Robert Costa that will remind readers of Woodward’s coverage, with Carl Bernstein, of President Richard M. Nixon’s final days.

  • Leftist Garbage

    Leftist garbage without a shred of reason; is completely biased against facts while spinning it's tale. A waste of hours of your life
  • Long and mostly boring.

    It seems to have the same spin as everything else these days. It’s not really very level headed and is more of a propaganda hit piece on “transitioning from a dangerous Tyrant to our dear leader”. Pitifully skewed and poorly researched. Save your money.
  • O M G - and I thought we had seen our worst president ever with Nixon…

    I refused to watch tv news, so as the horrors played out I waited for Woodward to report the real facts (as opposed to those ALTERNATIVE facts) in a book. As horrible as they are, I had to read them to learn the truth. ( as much as we’re allowed to know, anyway) My only regret in buying this book is that I didn’t get it in hard cover. It should go into my library for reference when my grandkids are older and we discuss our crazy mess of government.
  • Wonderful

    Well researched and written. The truth is out there and this work is one step closer in our quest to understand. We need to remain vigilant - in our care of Freedom, Democracy, the United States of America and everything we stand for.

    Trumpers hating this book doesn’t surprise me. They call everything they don’t like “propaganda”.
  • I love it so much and I think it’s will be good for me to read it again
