With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump’s White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence. (Source: @barnesandnoble ) #adhamjmiller

A special night at The New York Society Library on Monday — thank you to photographer Karen Smul for capturing my speech in this lovely photo. 
I’ve been a Library member for 52 years and always find whatever book I need when I’m researching various projects there. I was introduced to this amazing treasure by Ward Costello, a fellow cast-mate in Jean Kerr’s play “Mary, Mary” on Broadway. We would go in-between the matinee and evening performances on Wednesdays. 😁
So sweet of the Library to have my books on display! •
