"There are so many books about Donald Trump and his presidency that they could fill Mar-a-Lago and then spill out onto the lawn, but if you are going to read just one of them (and you should), please pick up The Divider"
--Air Mail

"Well-paced and engagingly written...the most comprehensive and detailed account of the Trump presidency yet published."
--The Washington Post

"[A] detail-rich history of the Trump administration...Comprehensively researched and briskly told...Squeezing the tumultuous events of the long national fever dream that was the Donald Trump presidency between two covers...would tax the skills of the nimblest journalist. Yet the husband-and-wife team of Baker and Glasser pull it off with assurance."
--The New York Times Book Review

"The book everyone is talking about"

"As a sumptuous feast of astonishing tales, it may hold wonderments indeed for those first contemplating the enormity of the Trump phenomenon...But even a reader steeped in years of Trump coverage and well-versed in the precedent literature may be surprised at how compelling this narrative proves to be. The more one reads, the more one wishes to read."

"A beautifully written, utterly dispiriting history of the man who attacked democracy."
--The Guardian

"A sweeping, dishy, 700-plus-page history of Trump's almost cartoonishly chaotic White House"

--The New York Review of Books

"A comprehensive and scathing chronicle of the Trump administration...The result is the most encyclopedic account of the Trump presidency yet published."
--Publishers Weekly *Starred Review*

"...The Divider is the definitive account of Trump's White House years...The story continues, but Baker and Glasser give readers an indispensable starting point."
--Booklist *Starred Review*

"An insightful account of a chaotic president by two of the best journalists writing on Washington today."
--Anne Applebaum, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of
Gulag and Twilight of Democracy

"Finally, the synthesis we need about the Trump presidency. Adding their own reporting and interpretive skills to the record - not to mention fine writing - Peter Baker and Susan Glasser's The Divider is a book worth everyone's serious attention."
--Carl Bernstein, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Chasing History and co-author of All the President's Men
