Should you read the book 'Fire and Fury' about Donald Trump?

The book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by Michael Wolff is the biggest literary sensation in a long time, making headlines since it was leaked last week. President Trump's lawyers tried to block its publication; in response, publisher Henry Holt decided to publish "Fire and Fury" four days early. It officially hit shelves Friday.

Commentary: The terrifying thing about 'Fire and Fury' is what Michael Wolff says about Trump, not Bannon

"The end of man is knowledge, but there is one thing he can't know. He can't know whether knowledge will save him or kill him. He will be killed, all right, but he can't know whether he is killed because of the knowledge which he has got or because of the knowledge which he hasn't got and which if he had it, would save him." – Narrator Jack Burden in "All the King's Men," by Robert Penn Warren
