Woodward's “Rage” includes an unprecedented nine hours of recorded, on-the-record interviews with the president. The book is set for release on Sept. 15 but excerpts released Wednesday included a number of revelations about Trump's approach to the pandemic, race relations, North Korea and other hot button issues.  

"Woodward spent hundreds of hours with first-hand sources to write his book, which follows President Trump as he confronts the crises of his presidency, especially the coronavirus pandemic and the racial unrest gripping the country," reads a "60 Minutes" programming announcement from CBS.  


"The Washington Post veteran reporter also obtained more than two dozen personal letters the president exchanged with North Korean dictator Kim Jong UnKim Jong UnSister of North Korean leader dismisses prospects for talks with US Sullivan: Comments by North Korea's Kim an 'interesting signal' Kim says North Korea needs to be 'prepared' for 'confrontation' with US MORE," it adds.  
"Rage” comes two years after Woodward’s other bestselling book, "Fear" which centered on the first two years of Trump's presidency. Trump did not make himself available for interviews for that book.  

"Rage" and "Fear" are both from publisher Simon & Schuster, a ViacomCBS subsidiary.
