The Obamas

2012

This book reminded me a bit of watching West Wing. We don’t realize how the White House is buzzing 24/7. Kantor takes us inside for an eye-opening expose of life in America’s most famous mansion. Michelle and Barack Obama managed to adapt to a very dramatic change in their lifestyle with grace and maturity. But it wasn’t all rosy. We learn about the trials and tribulations the first couple endured while trying to maintain their “date” night, celebrating Halloween, dealing with the Gulf oil spill, examining the President’s competitive nature, and witnessing Michelle’s fierce loyalty to her husband while she slips into “mama bear” mode. It’s all here and more. Prepare to get up close and personal with the first family and the President’s closest advisers: Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff; Robert Gibbs, his longtime Press Secretary; and David Axelrod. West Wing may make you dizzy. This book will verify the hectic pace portrayed on that show.
