According to Bloomberg, Wolff pitched the book to the White House with the gentler title The Great Transition: The First 100 Days of the Trump Administration.
"Nearly everyone who spoke with Wolff thought someone else in the White House had approved their participation". His previous work included a critical book on Trump confidant Rupert Murdoch, the Twenty-First Century Fox co-chairman.
In this explosive book, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office, and tells the inside story of the most controversial presidency of our time.
The book characterised Mr Trump as unstable, inept and unprepared to be president.
The book caused Trump to publicly and dramatically sever his relationship with Steve Bannon, his former strategist, whom Wolff quoted disparaging the president and his family.
The publisher thanked author Michael Wolff for "taking on the planet's biggest bully", referring to Trump.

Meanwhile, education aid will increase about $769 million, or 3 percent. "I don't have a problem with our looking at it", he said. If state spending is kept below a 2 percent growth rate, then the more true deficit number is $1.7 billion, they said.
It sold more than 28,000 copies in the United States in its first week, according to NPD BookScan.
President Trump has said that Wolff did not have his permission to pen the book that he had "zero access" to him or the building.
Wolff responded: "Not only is he helping me sell books, but he's helping me prove the point of the book".
It wasn't until August of a year ago, Bloomberg says, that Hicks and other senior aides such as Jared Kushner came to the understanding that their foes within the building, like Bannon, may have been dishing to Wolff about them.
During one discussion with Trump about her on-off boyfriend and fellow Trump worker Corey Lewandowski he is said to have told her 'You're the best piece of tail he'll ever have'. But Wolff also assisted himself by painting his project as one that was sympathetic to the president and his administration.
Well, it was only a matter of time.
