Product Details


“A meticulous history. . . . An essential read for anyone seriously concerned with the fate of democracy in the United States. The book belongs in every library seeking to record the major forces and personalities shaping the 21st century.” New York Journal of Books

“A deeply-reported look at President Donald Trump and his chaotic administration . . . Shocking revelations.” —People
“What [I Alone Can Fix It] argues in a detailed case is that the catastrophe of 2020 was a result of Trump’s proclivity to put political optics above all else, including American lives.” —USA Today

“A blockbuster follow-up to A Very Stable Genius, in which Leonnig and Rucker chronicled the chaos of Trump’s first three years in office. I Alone Can Fix It pulls back the curtain on the handling of Covid-19, the re-election bid and its chaotic and violent aftermath. The pair are Pulitzer winners, for investigative reporting. Their book is essential reading. They have receipts, which they lay out for all to see.” The Guardian

“Incisive, dramatic and masterful . . . Leonnig and Rucker capture it all. Just when we think, in absorbing these horrific events of the transfer of power to Joe Biden, that we can’t be shocked any morewe are. The tumult is raw and real and ugly. The Trump Oval Office is a place defiled. As they showed us previously, their reporting is as authoritative and seamless as the legends they have now succeededBob Woodward and Carl Bernsteinunder the shield of the venerable Post.” The Sydney Morning Herald

“We begin tonight with breaking news on just how unhinged the final days of the last administration were and how much worse they might have gotten . . . These and other chilling scenes are contained in a new book, I Alone Can Fix It.” —Anderson Cooper, CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360”
“We begin with explosive new revelations about just how close American democracy came to the edge. Jaw-dropping excerpts from a new book about the aftermath of the 2020 election . . . I don’t want people to lose sight of the historic nature of what is being reported here.” —John Berman, CNN’s “New Day”
“We are now getting some bracing new revelations about Donald Trump’s final year, his final days in the White House, and they come from the Pulitzer Prize writing duo, friends of this broadcast, Phil Rucker and Carol Leonnig of the Washington Post in their new book, I Alone Can Fix It.” —Brian Williams, MSNBC’s “11th Hour”
“In never-before-seen excerpts from the brand-new book I Alone Can Fix It by Phil Rucker and Carol Leonnig, we are learning that the Trump presidency was much, much worse than any of us imagined and that the people around him all knew it. They also knew he had autocratic tendencies and would do anything to cling to power, including endangering the life of his own Vice President and the Vice President’s family. Blockbuster new reporting in this yet-to-be-released book bears that out and adds to our understanding of the horrors of January 6th.” Nicolle Wallace, MSNBC’s “Deadline White House”
“Thank God we have reporters like Phil and Carol . . . to be able to go back and tell us what was actually going on. Everything is shocking.” —John Heilemann, MSNBC’s “Deadline White House”
“Explosive new reporting tonight describing the country’s most senior military officer comparing former President Trump’s lies about election fraud to Nazi-era Germany. . . . That’s according to the new book by two Washington Post reporters based on interviews with more than 140 people, with newly revealed details of fears from top military brass of how close the country was to chaos.” —Hallie Jackson, “NBC Nightly News”
“Bombshell reporting.” —David Muir, “ABC World News Tonight”
“That’s the importance of this book . . . We’re finally getting behind the scenes as to what our leaders were saying and knew about Trump.” —Carl Bernstein, CNN’s “New Day”
