Will You Read It?

People are lining up to purchase the Donald Trump 'tell all'  Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff.  It has gone into reprint already.
So....here's the question.  You have had the 'real thing' front and centre in your lives for a little over a year now.  You have seen it in action and read it's ridiculous tweets.  Do you really need to read more about it?  Not a day goes by without The Donald in our faces on TV, in the papers and on the Internet.    It's not hard to draw your own conclusions so do we really need more?  The man has had his allotted fifteen minutes of fame and it will be hard to erase his legacy from the history books.  At least Mr Wolff will make a small fortune from his efforts.
Will you be buying the book?

  1. No, I won't read it. I will be interested in reviews of any bits that might be included in impeachment proceedings, but I'm damned if I buy the book to pick them out in print, when, as you say, they have been available for a long time.

  2. I totally agree with you! I see what I see, I hear what he says, and my opinion iis formed by that. I have read quotes from the book (who hasn’t?), and I don’t need anyone to reaffirm what I, and most of the world, knows. He is a cruel, vindictive, stupid conman who can destroy the world as we know it.

  3. Doubt I would pay good money for things that are in front of me. As I have tried to avoid most of it after I figured out for myself that he is trying for position of the anti-Christ. Still entertaining to see a bad man digging his grave.

    My answer ... no, I will not be!

    All the best Jan

  5. I won't be enriching Mr Wolf's coffers either. The POTUS both worries and scares me.

  6. I got it on Kindle the other night and I'm about 25% of the way through it.It hasn't really changed my opinion on anything yet nor has it really supercharged my knowledge base of the current Administration.

    But I'll finish it.

    I remember back when the economy tanked in 2007 and 2008. President Bush said, "They say I'm bad for the economy but just look what I've done for the publishing industry." I'm sure we'll be hearing that from this President, too: "Book sales are up during my Administration!"

  7. I have no interest in reading it myself, not sure that I would even pick it up if it were free, just not my cup of tea.

  8. I'd probably read it if it was free or reduced in price, but from the excerpts I've read so far I'm not sure I have faith in the author to be adding to the conversation rather than just repeating what we already know. Seems more like a book written to make the author money than to make the public more informed.

  9. Whatever Trump has to say is unimportant. All rational countries' leaderships have already made this observation, which somewhat reinforces my trust in world affairs.

  10. Trump certainly hasn't been front and centre in my life, the little I hear on the news and read in the papers is enough and there's no way I'd waste money on that book.

  11. Ha. No. I'm pretty sure the only people buying his book are those that are obsessed with him.

  12. No comment other than our President needs our prayers like every other one that has come before him.
