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.


  • Great read

    By Cindy Bailey
    It gave me a look at the inside workings of the White House. A supporter of Obama in 2008 I will vote for him again. I think this book shows he takes the job of President to heart he really wants to help this country.
  • Still sick to my stomach

    What a boreing,self loving, self centered, non American, non Christian, couple. They are perfect for each other & deserve what the end has in store for them.

  • Great book

    By Sue cassidy
    I almost didn't read this book because of a few negative reviews stating that the author hadn't done enough original research, but had pulled the info from a variety of other sources. I'm so glad I ignored the naysayers! I LOVED this book because after reading it, I was left with a much deeper understanding of the Obamas. I don't have time to run around reading 1 zillion different articles, I'm quite happy to see the information assembled all in one place! Nice, light read that was very informative and enlightening. I have NOT been happy with the Presidents performance and I feel I better understand his struggles and challenges.

    By AliGallagher
    I thought the author missed bridging the psychology of both Obama's with their actions. There is predictability of behavior and motive if one knows the true character of another. That remained woefully underdeveloped, opting instead for an outsider's opinion.
