Summary
American politics today are more polarizing and divisive than ever, but there's one thing we can all agree on; 2017 was one long, crazy year. There were too many triumphs and tragedies to count, and dozens of moments that will impact our lives for years to come; for even the most die-hard political junkies, some of the details are already starting to fall through the cracks. When every year in Trumpland feels like a decade, who can we turn to for an authoritative, entertaining breakdown of the most important and wide-reaching events? Look no further than Major Garrett. As CBS News' Chief White House Correspondent, he's been strapped into the front seat of Mr. Trump's Wild Ride since Inauguration Day.Garrett has served as a White House correspondent for nearly two decades, covering the last four presidents for three different news outlets; he's an expert in executive branch intrigue, and he knows a little something about taking the long view. Mr. Trump's Wild Ride is neither an exercise in Trump-bashing nor a pro-Trump pep rally. It's a definitive, non-biased chronicle of a watershed year in the White House. Buckle up; we're in for a bumpy ride.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Mistakes, malignancies, and some real achievements emerge from the chaos in this rollicking, perceptive history of President Trump's first year in office. Garrett (The Enduring Revolution) observes the Trump administration from his perch as CBS News's White House correspondent, devoting chapters to the warp-speed staff turnovers, uproars over immigration policy and NFL anthem kneelers, and diplomatic U-turns that changed Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un from trash-talking enemies into buddies. Drawing on his own encounters with the president, Garrett paints a sharp portrait of Trump's domineering personality. He also explores the president's hidden, fitful processes of governance as they spectacularly fail, as in the collapse of health-care initiatives in Congress, and sometimes work, as in the smooth passage of the "transformative" tax cut bill. Although he allows that covering Trump left him "physically exhausted and mentally traumatized" after the firing of FBI director James Comey, Garrett's assessment of Trump manages the difficult task of being both hard-hitting and even-handed, as well as smartly entertaining. (Trump's deregulatory program, he writes, "has not so much drained the swamp as stocked it with pro-business piranha.") The result is one of the best accounts yet of Trump's impact.
