Not as credible as one would like.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Probably not. When I began fact checking, I immediately found that the book exaggerated situations. While I am not a Trump fan, I don't want to be misled either. One example of misinformation is when the author discusses Trump's speech to the CIA. When I compared what the book reported to the entire speech on CNN, it was obvious that the book was editing out, and misrepresenting what was said.
Would you recommend Fire and Fury to your friends? Why or why not?
No, primarily because of the misrepresenting information. I prefer my journalism to be factual and allow me to make my own opinion.
Did Fire and Fury inspire you to do anything?
Be more diligent in fact checking.
Any additional comments?
Please leave the spin out of journalism, it's hard enough to get to the truth when people are being factual.

Difficult to differentiate real from fake info
the author basically starts off the books saying although he's done so much research and interviewed a lot of people He is uncertain what parts of the book are real and fake and sometimes he will let the audience know and other times he leaves it up to the audience to determine. This is a mistake and significantly reduces The credibility of the book. It would have been better if the author had used his research to make an educated guess on what was going on rather than adding conjecture. Increased ambiguity on such an important issue is disappointing. having said that the narrator is top-notch.
