I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump's Catastrophic Final Year
Sources. Washington Post journalists Carol D. Leonnig and Philip Rucker have written a follow up to their book titled, A Very Stable Genius, that recounted the first three years of the Trump Presidency. They deliver their accounting of Trump’s final year in their book titled, I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year. The subtitle summarizes their assessment with a single adjective. The book includes their own reporting from that final year, and with some brief distance from their daily reporting at the time, they place events in more context for this volume and offer a long and readable narrative about that last year. I marveled at the extent of their sources, their clear access to those people who were present for what was done behind closed doors. Unlike for their earlier book, this time President Trump agreed to an interview, and he spent hours with the reporters, which they describe in detail for readers. Readers interested in public affairs are those most likely to enjoy this account of very recent history. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase I Alone Can Fix It from amazon.com.
