The Obamas

by Jodi Kantor

Little, Brown And Company | August 7, 2012 | Trade Paperback

The Obamas is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
When Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, he also won a long-running debate with his wife Michelle. Contrary to her fears, politics now seemed like a worthwhile, even noble pursuit. Together they planned a White House life that would be as normal and sane as possible.

Then they moved in.

In the Obamas, Jodi Kantor takes us deep inside the White House as they try to grapple with their new roles, change the country, raise children, maintain friendships, and figure out what it means to be the first black President and First Lady. Filled with riveting detail and insight into their partnership, emotions and personalities, and written with a keen eye for the ironies of public life, THE OBAMAS is an intimate portrait that will surprise even readers who thought they knew the President and First Lady.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent read really an interesting look at the Obamas. I'm a republican, and there are some things about our president that I find a bit unsavory, in regards to his political adjendas, but this book was a decent read. I recomend it.
