About this title


*EXCLUSIVE BONUS MATERIAL: In a rare and fascinating opportunity to hear an author ? and a president ? at work, the audiobook includes an exclusive recording of Jonathan Alter interviewing President Obama in the Oval Office on November 30th, 2009, a wide-ranging, half-hour conversation in which the president looks back on his first ten months in office, notes some of his accomplishments and challenges, reflects on the political environment of the day, and much more. Alter, who writes and reports on national politics for Newsweek and NBC, comes from a politically involved Chicago family. He knows well the environment from which Obama launched his campaign for the senate and the presidency. Alter first met Obama when he visited the family as it sat shiva for one of its members. Alter takes the listener into the inner circles of Obama's intimates, those who were there from the start, and the gradually expanding circles, and to show for the first time the emotions, rivalries, alliances of the extremely tight-lipped and disciplined administration: Biden, whom he chose because he had the experience even though he was not an early supporter, Hillary, whom he had long wanted for Secretary of State. There are stunning portraits of his oldest friends, including Valerie Jarrett, and his early supporters; the Kennedys, Daschle, and of the more volatile newcomers, Rahm of course, and Larry Summers, and Geitner. Watch the president dominate his Cabinet with silences and stares (instead of shouting like Clinton or LBJ). Add to that the knowledge that leaking can lose you your job. (One advisor called Obama, "The most unsentimental man I have ever known.")
