"The Obamas" by Jodi Kantor

Last week, a new book was released about the President and First Lady. It is simply entitled, The Obamas. This book has been greatly anticipated. Before the release, it was the subject of newspaper articles and various TV news shows. Now it is on bookstore shelves.

The publisher's synopsis states -

"When Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, he also won a long-running debate with his wife Michelle. Contrary to her fears, politics now seemed like a worthwhile, even noble pursuit. Together they planned a White House life that would be as normal and sane as possible.

Then they moved in.

In The Obamas, Jodi Kantor takes us deep inside the White House as they try to grapple with their new roles, change the country, raise children, maintain friendships, and figure out what it means to be the first black President and First Lady. Filled with riveting detail and insight into their partnership, emotions and personalities, and written with a keen eye for the ironies of public life, THE OBAMAS is an intimate portrait that will surprise even readers who thought they knew the President and First Lady."
