Now with an updated preface

When Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, he also won a long-running debate with Michelle. Contrary to her fears, politics now seemed like a worthwhile, even noble pursuit. Together they exuded promise and possibility and planned a White House that would be as normal and sane as possible.

Then inauguration came.

Jodi Kantor takes us inside the White House as Michelle and Barack Obama begin their transformation into President and First Lady. Filled with insight, surprising behind-the-scenes detail, and stories that never made headlines, it is a revelatory story of personal history on the political stage.

With a new preface surveying their post-White House future, Jodi Kantor's The Obamas illuminates the extraordinary partnership behind a historic presidency.

Editorial Reviews

"A portrait of a remarkable marriage.... Kantor's writing is insightful and evocative, rich with detail...[and her] reporting rings true--and considering the administration's insistence on presenting a unified front, it is a considerable achievement."
-Kerry Luft, Chicago Tribune
