Book about obama white house
The World As It Is: Inside the Obama White House by Ben RhodesThis is a book about two people making the most important decisions in the world. One is Barack Obama. The other is Ben Rhodes.
The World As It Is tells the full story of what it means to work alongside a radical leader; of how idealism can confront reality and survive; of how the White House really functions; and of what it is to have a partnership, and ultimately a friendship, with a historic president.
A young writer and Washington outsider, Ben Rhodes was plucked from obscurity aged 29. Chosen for his original perspective and gift with language, his role was to help shape the nation’s hopes and sense of itself. For nearly ten years, Rhodes was at the centre of the Obama Administration – first as a speechwriter, then a policymaker, and finally a multi-purpose aide and close collaborator.
Rhodes puts us in the room at the most tense and poignant moments in recent history: starting every morning with Obama in the Daily Briefing; waiting out the bin Laden raid in the Situation Room; reaching a nuclear agreement with Iran; leading secret negotiations with the Cuban government; confronting the resurgence of nationalism that led to the election of Donald Trump.
This is the most vivid portrayal yet of Obama’s presidency. It is an essential record of the last decade. But it also shows us what it means to hold the pen, and to write the words that change our world.

These days it seems like every White House staff member and their pet rabbit can get their own book deal. Oh wait. And because this current administration has had more turnover than Amazon, there have been more memoirs from inside the Trump White House than we ever A wanted and B needed. Two former White House social secretaries Berman worked for George and Laura Bush, Bernard for Barack and Michelle Obama outline the life-altering idea of the importance of treating people well in American politics. Berman and Bernard share stories of their social interactions with those of different walks of life and points of view and advice on how to connect with people across the aisle. Cunnane was a senior writer and the former Deputy Director of Messaging for the Obama Administration. In his memoir, he outlines his journey from warehouse worker to White House insider.

Jarrett, who is sixty-two, was born in Iran to American parents. Her family moved to Chicago when she was a child, and she practiced law before entering city politics. Nearly thirty years later, she remains one of their closest political and personal confidantes. In addition to advising them, she currently serves as a board member of Lyft, and is a distinguished senior fellow at the University of Chicago Law School. How did your idea of political power change between when you arrived at the White House, in , and when you finished serving, eight years later? What I was unprepared for when I arrived in Washington—and it took me a good while to figure out—is that the Republicans were willing, in the middle of the worst economic crisis of our lifetime, to put their short-term political interests ahead of what was good for the country.
