Bush—now brings us  Showdown, the dramatic inside story of Barack Obama’s fight to save his presidency.

    " A good synopsis of the political events of the Obama Administration in 2011. And do the Republicans ever look like incompetent crazies. "

    " A progressive look at the Obama administration from the election losses of 2010 to the beginning of the 2012 election campaign last fall. Focuses on President Obama's leadership style and decision-making process. Very detailed, only for true political junkies. "

    " This book helped me to understand why Obama hasn't finished some of his campaign promises, but it was a little too much rah-rah for me. And I'm a rah-rah Obama fan. Good reporting on the bin Laden raid and some insight into Guantanamo. "
