They exploded on the national political scene in 2004, and within four short years captured the ultimate political prize. By the time they claimed the White House in one of the most hotly contested presidential races in modern history, Barack and Michelle Obama were seen by millions around the world as the new Jack and Jackie Kennedy - brilliant, attractive, elegant, youthful, exciting.

Accompanied by their two young daughters, Malia and Sasha, the Obamas would arrive at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with the promise of a new Camelot all but assured.

Given the obvious historic significance of what they accomplished together, the marriage of Barack and Michelle stands as one of the great personal and political partnerships in American history. Yet, incredibly, the true nature of that relationship remains a mystery. Until now.

In the style of his number-one New York Times best sellers The Day Diana Died and The Day John Died, as well as his best-selling books about the Kennedys, the Clintons, and the Bushes, author Christopher Andersen draws on important sources - some speaking for the first time - to paint the first complete, compelling portrait of America's first black First Family.

    " This read more like a biography of both Barack and Michelle, rather than a book on their marraige. Nonethless, it was still very interesting. "

    " Valuable information of both of their lives and their union. Towards the end, it became more about Barack ascension to the presidency. Nonetheless, the book was highly inspirational. "
