I’ve been making my way through Barack Obama’s amazing new book at top speed, even though it is the size of the brick. I have such respect for Obama, who I find to be incredibly intelligent and articulate, but also completely human.
- The insights into the day-to-day happenings at the White House
- Obama’s philosophical musings on what good governance really looks like
- The digs at Trump – just so satisfying
I didn’t love:
- I just wanted more! I was so immersed that I sometimes felt like I was one of Obama’s top political aides, helping him deal with the Greek financial crisis or meeting world leaders. Luckily this is part of a series…
Would recommend it to:
Anyone who is interested in politics or recent history. Or who needs a reminder of what being presidential is actually all about.
