The Room Where It Happened Book CoverAbstract

As President Trump’s National Security Adviser, John Bolton spent many of his 453 days in the room where it happened. The result is a White House memoir that is the most comprehensive and substantial account of the Trump Administration, and one of the few to date by a top-level official. With almost daily access to the President, John Bolton has produced a precise rendering of his days in and around the Oval Office.

The turmoil, conflicts, and egos are all there—from the upheaval in Venezuela, to the erratic moves of North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, to the showdowns at the G7 summits, the calculated warmongering by Iran, and the placating of an authoritarian China that ultimately exposed the world to its lethal lies. As seasoned public servant with a great eye for the Washington inside game, his story is full of wit and wry humor about how he saw it played.
