In the Fifth Risk, Michael Lewis gives an inside account of the troubled transition from the Obama to the Trump White House and the new administration’s seemingly wilful ignorance of the federal bureaucracy. Rubrick Biegon and Tom Watts praise the book for its accessibility and discussion of the longer term risks that the Trump presidency may pose to American prosperity, security, and wellbeing.
