Summary
For nearly ten years, Rhodes saw almost everything that happened at the center of the Obama administration, first as a speechwriter, then as deputy national security advisor, and finally as a multipurpose aide and close collaborator. He started every morning in the Oval Office with the President's Daily Brief, traveled the world with Obama, and was at the center of some of the most consequential and controversial moments of the presidency. Rhodes shows what it was like to be there from the early days of the Obama campaign to the final hours of the presidency. A vivid portrayal if Obama's worldview and presidency, a chronicle of a political education, and a record of the forces that shaped the last decade. -- Adapted from back cover
Summary
From one of Barack Obama’s closest aides comes a behind-the-scenes account of his presidency—and how idealism can confront harsh reality and still survive
