Obama’s Wars is the latest book by Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post reporter, Bob Woodward. After its release several weeks ago, it instantly rose to the top of the best seller lists.
Woodward chronicles the situation Obama faced when he entered the White House and the subsequent relationship between the Commander-In-Chief, the Pentagon, and his staff. The dust jacket states that “Woodward has discovered how the Obama White House really works, showing that even more tough decisions lie ahead for the cerebral and engaged President.” Woodward also delves into the situation in Pakistan where there is an unstable government, terrorist camps, and nuclear weapons.
It is very difficult for Canadians to escape the news coming from south of the border. In the run-up to the November elections, many books are finding their way into bookstores and libraries. Obama’s Wars is located in several library branches, and many other books on the current administration are also available.
