Booming sales for Woodward's 'Fear,' Trump presidency book

Eric Trump Used Anti-semitic Language On National TV. Happy New Year, Jews!

Woodward's new book has drawn considerable attention for, among other things, the light it shines on the divide between the White House and the Pentagon.

Although Fear does relies heavily on unnamed sources (as is typical for Woodward, who argues that "deep background" sourcing is essential to learning the truth), other first-hand accounts of the Trump administration's inner chaos have mostly come before from far less reputable voices, such as, most recently, former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, considered by numerous president's top critics to be as equally fickle and self-serving as the president. In 2004, Bill Clinton's memoir "My Life" sold more than 1 million copies within eight days.

During an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN Wednesday night, Bob Woodward responded to Eric Trump's remarks saying he wrote the book to make "shekels".

What these people don't realize is the Woodward, who is responsible for helping uncover Nixon's Watergate scandal, is a professional at what he does, and nearly certainly backs his claims up with evidence. I don't talk the way I am quoted.

And if he's messed with Brook's head, just that little bit more, that's two missions accomplished in one night. Moreover, British rival Kell Brook was also ringside, itching to get his arch foe to sign to fight in December.

"Misfortune" has dominated political headlines since reviews about it emerged closing week. "Fear" had more preorders than any other book in Simon & Schuster's history, according to the publisher, which has previously released such bestsellers as Hillary Clinton's "Living History" and Walter Isaacson's "Steve Jobs". "Is that really where we are?"

Author Bob Woodward says of his sources, "There's a lot of conscience and courage in this - people speaking up". Some former White House officials who spoke with Woodward have tried to distance themselves from the book.

Woodward stands by his reporting, which paints a picture of a dysfunctional Trump White House and a novice president who is often at odds with top officials in his administration.

In one section, Woodward examines the President's disconnect from matters of national security, which prompted Trump to question why the United States was even devoting precious military resources to Korea in the first place.
