A Warning

A Warning Summary

#1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller:An unprecedented behind-the-scenes portrait of the Trump presidency from the anonymous senior official whose first words of warning about the president rocked the nation's capital.

On September 5, 2018, the New York Times published a bombshell essay and took the rare step of granting its writer anonymity. Described only as "a senior official in the Trump administration," the author provided eyewitness insight into White House chaos, administration instability, and the people working to keep Donald Trump's reckless impulses in check.

With the 2020 election on the horizon, Anonymous is speaking out once again. In this book, the original author pulls back the curtain even further, offering a first-of-its-kind look at the president and his record -- a must-read before Election Day. It will surprise and challenge both Democrats and Republicans, motivate them to consider how we judge our nation's leaders, and illuminate the consequences of re-electing a commander in chief unfit for the role.

This book is a sobering assessment of the man in the Oval Office and a warning about something even more important -- who we are as a people.

Book Reviews


Refreshing Breeze5 star

Focuses on the basics of democracy and leadership. We need to refocus on character as the basis of leadership- honesty, integrity, others and the mission before self, compassion, courage, respect for others. Also the leaders need for listening, tolerating constructive feedback, improving morale and negotiating compromises for the common good. Should be required reading for politicians of both parties- and there will be a test at the end!.55


A Must Have Document !5 star

For a girl who grew up boycotting news and cable TVs al together, the internet with all its political gossip platforms and daily political discussions I ppreciate this book. It’s a must have documented history we’re still living and making. A Warning! A well written, well narrated and very well presented, detailing a lot of what was hidden from people like me in this country who living their lives away from the daily - so-called breaking news. To add up to all the ugliness, authoritarianism and inhumanity of the previous guy in the WH and his administration in our near past. A chapter of our history in which we all lived, witnessed and went through its horrors and heartbreaks, Plus our COVID-19 US losses. I’ve picked this book when it was still by anonymous in 2019 and left me thinking a lot and shifting perspectives, making some major decisions in my life for my future children as well. I’d like to have the copy with the author’s name on too ASAP to save it for my children in our homeschooling library, so that we can discuss it together when they become a well brought up adults incha’Allah and I tell them what we’ve done to stand up for our Democracy and show the world what we’re capable of doing. Miles Taylor, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for documenting this chapter of our history in a very powerful and heart touching way! I send you all forces of love and I pray always for your safety and well-being. Thanks again🙏55

Deeply Reflecting1 star

I love politics but I don’t understand them. This book has opened my eyes in so many ways. I recognize so many of the questions I have actually asked myself and the answers are here and have been validated. I am not surprised by anything I have read within these pages. Books are simply words meant to teach us , entertain us, and help us, manage our lives. However, this book went much deeper when it forced me to reflect on how I choose a leader. That person should reflect who I am, what I value and what I wish to pass on to future generations. It is A Warning plain and simple and a wake up call for each and every one of us to go protect our Democracy from those that wish to discredit it. Many thanks to the author for his bravery to wake us up.15


Good, but flawed narrator4 star

Anonymous wants us to know that things are not going well for the steady state, but isn’t ready for “anything drastic.” Knows the president denies the help he got from Russians in the election, but thinks another election is the ideal remedy. They may be right, but their solution is as naive now as they were when they joined the administration. Here’s hoping we take this warning seriously for our own sake.45

Must read for every voter...55


A Clear Warning to all Americans5 star

This outstanding book was obviously written by someone very high up in the Whitehouse. He or she describes an administration reeling in almost daily chaos, manned by a staff mortified at the immoral behavior of the President. The author’s use of historical events brings into focus the damage being done by Trump to our nation’s moral direction.55

Sobering Insight into Trump’s White House5 star

I’m not sure what I expected, but it is a sobering reality check for those who weren’t already familiar by now with Trump’s scary & criminal behavior on a day to day basis. Must read. I’m really sure now that Trump was never qualified to be President of our great Country.55

This is Disgraceful.1 star

The US Senate needs to use the power of the United States Congress to expose who this person is and imprison this person. If someone from Obama’s White House has done this they would have been publicly rebuked and would have had their lives ruined by the Media. This is disgraceful.15
