Would you listen to Confront and Conceal again? Why?
I would. Having read "Wired for War" by Peter Singer, I was curious as to how Sanger was viewing President Obama's policies on the use of drones - and other high-tech warfare. POTUS has to be smart enough to understand how 21st century technology is changing what it means to be at war. My first go-round I would say Sanger is as conflicted as I, but some of the reviews I read say Sanger feels Obama has too much power and is using it improperly. Either I missed something or the reviewers are using their own spin.

This was an informative book that takes you behind the scenes of the presidency in its most difficult and sometimes scary role of commander in chief. This peak behind the curtain was incredible and I am greatly appreciative to the author for reporting on the leaders of our country as they took on the momentous events covered in the book.
I felt I got to know the people behind the decisions and the differing views each of these situations involved. For example, the Bin Laden raid could have been a bomb, or could have included Pakistani buy in. Why did we choose a raid that could have ended like Black Hawk Down and to what extent did we feel confident that Bin Laden was even there? These were just a few of the issues discussed and I was absolutely enthralled with the way the story was told.
In this book you get in-depth context and the “why” behind some of the directions we’ve gone and I can’t recommend it more.

This book was an excellent study on the job of the President of the United States. True and frank..; it lets the reader really know what he has to deal with day by day, and how he handles the most difficult decisions
