This is wonderful. David Litt does an incredible job of providing interesting commentary and unique anecdotes all wrapped up in a flawless narration.
I laughed, I cried, and I felt a little more "hopey changey" than I have in a while.

Both well written and well read by the author himself. It was great fun to learn of the inner workings of the speechwriters, the WH staff, flying on Air Force One, the WH Correspondents Dinner and of course the Obama Whitehouse. An enjoyable read, definitely recommend this one.

No idea why I chose this particular book but something called to me. So glad I picked it. So many Obama writings get caught in the race debate and in the beginning I thought this was going to be the same.
However, Litt dealt with it and moved on.
Loved the insight, humour and honesty that came from this. Acknowledgement of flaws and keeping the story human really made this for me.
As a Scot, I have no influence on the USA, but I hope Obamas legacy is carried on.. I was seriously ill some years ago and did not have to worry about affording treatment in Scotland. Shouldn't free healthcare and education be available to all? I don't take these things lightly and I'm sure hardly any one does. I know that as they're paid for by taxes they aren't totally free but no one should have to choose between food and children's health and education and equality in the 21st century should be closer than it is.
Thought provoking, laugh out loud and in some areas tear jerking, this was worth it all
Good luck in the future to both Litt and Obama.
I really enjoyed this. It was great to see the White House from the perspective of someone initially quite far down the pecking order.
