Yes We (Still) Can: Politics in the Age of Obama, Twitter, and Trump Reviews

    I miss President Obama. ...

    As a fan of Dan Pfeiffer on the podcast Pod Save America, I knew I wanted to read his book as soon as I heard about it. It offers an insightful look at the author's time in the Obama administration, the difficulties faced and the pleasure to work for a man he so respected. The book is ...

    If you listen to the pod, you're already getting this book and you know what to expect. I really can't say what this book would be like to read if you aren't already a Friend of the Pod. It's good. Not great, but good. There are some funny anecdotes. It doesn't get into the weeds, it's...

    Solid and substantive. It's really interesting to see how someone got to such a high level at such a young age, and Pfeiffer's work ethic and intellect certainly comes through. My only criticism is that it's more of a prescriptive politics and campaigning book than a book of anecdotes ...

    ?Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.? ? President Barack Obama . . How the **ck do we ended up here, and what do we do now? are the core questions Dan Pfeiffer answers...

    I love Dan Pfeiffer and I'm definitely a friend of the pod "Pod Save America." This book was enjoyable as long as you know what you're in for. It's not: - an Obama biography. - a complete rehash of the 2016 election. - a hatchet job on Clinton and/or Sanders. It is: - A memoi...

    I am an avid Pod Save America fan, and I am always happy to invest in safe advice from the funniest political commentators around. This book had some really good advice for Dems moving into 2018 and 2020 that I hope is heeded, and some even better stories of life in Obama's White H...

    Really enjoyed reading this one by Pod Save America host, Dan Pfeiffer. He writes just like he talks on the podcast, so I could "hear" everything the way he says it. I liked how he told stories about his time in the Obama White House, including his own missteps, and I also liked how he...

    ?If we play their game, we lose. We have to change the game.?- Barack People like Dan give me hope that there?s so much that (still) can be done to move our nation toward a more equitable and democratic society. ...

    Why? Why do I torture myself by reading books written by President Obama's staff? I actually burst into tears when I read the last lines of this book. Because I never realized how much I could miss a President. I read them because it reminds me of what we are capable of. I read the...

    This probably wasn?t the right book for me to read right now, but it was both easily accessible and a book I could at least get myself through. I enjoyed Dan?s voice a lot, as always, and I gave this book some extra credit for the stellar event at the 92nd Street Y. Hey, I finis...

    I have a hard time putting a rating on this, because Dan is my favorite and this is really good, but this was absolutely the wrong time for me to read this book. Three stars it is. ...

    Since the election it has been hard to be positive about the state of our country. I read as much as I can stomach and listen to as many podcasts as my ears will tolerate and have been to more marches in my life, but this book does offer a sense of hope and lays out some steps on how t...

    I?m a fan of Pod Save America, so I?m familiar with Dan?s delivery of information. I like a book that, when I?m reading, I can hear the author speaking - and that?s what this does. I needed to read this; a nice bit of looking back on the Obama years, and some great advice for...

    Ive said it before, but Goodreads really needs the ability to add a DNF rating. Former Obama White House Communications Director (and current host of Pod Save America) Dan PFeiffer's book Yes We (Still) Can is part memoir and part political road map for the future. While I quite enj...

    This one is hard for me to review. I love Pfeiffer (Friend of the Pod) and was happy that this is not another Obama White House memoir but it was a bit too polemical for me. It?s a really nice deconstruction of WTF just happened and what can we do going forward. ...

    There?s been a glut of Obama WH memoirs hitting publishing lately and I?m here for them. A few weeks back, I blazed through Dan Pfeiffer?s ?Yes We Still Can? enthralled with his recounting of his years as Obama?s communications director. If you?re a friend of Pod Save Ame...

    Just the book I needed. Part therapeutic reminiscing of the good old Obama days and part a focused approach for the way forward, Yes We (Still) Can will give you a brief escape from the current insanity but also provide hope that we actually might survive. Will probably need to read ag...

    I love politics, particularly American politics. I study political science, I follow the news regarding all things Trump religiously, and almost all the podcasts I listen to are about politics (Pod Save America is, of course, one of them). However, there was always one thing that I jus...

    This was among the better ones of the post-Obama memoirs and believe me, I have read them all. There is a familiar story that runs through them-so much life-changing home, can't believe they win, then surprise at how cool Obama is and so chill, impressed by being in the WH day to day, ...

    I almost didn't want to read this because I miss Obama so much. (Remember when we had a president that read full books? Many of them? And then shared his recommendations?) However, some days the only news I can handle consuming is brought to me by Crooked Media, so I figured I should...

    This book was a great look into Dan Pfeiffer's time in the Obama campaign and administration, as well as the current media landscape in the US. I love Dan's voice on Pod Save America and I loved his voice in this book. I don't think it's really a 'how to move forward'-guide, apart from...

    It?s refreshing to see a book that?s like 50% memoir and 50% lessons the Democrats can use to comeback as a stronger party. Great read. It?s also inspiring and to see a guy write so personally about a boss he admires. Especially when the current President?s staff thinks the...

    I listened to this book because I listen to Dan on Pod Save America. It was everything I hoped for! I loved hearing about Dan's experiences working on the campaign and in the White House, and hearing personal stories about Barack Obama. I love hearing that he's really every bit as good...

    I LOVE DAN. Review to come ...

    Solid and substantive. It's really interesting to see how someone got to such a high level at such a young age, and Pfeiffer's work ethic and intellect certainly comes through. My only criticism is that it's more of a prescriptive politics and campaigning book than a book of anecdotes ...

    ?Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.? ? President Barack Obama . . How the **ck do we ended up here, and what do we do now? are the core questions Dan Pfeiffer answers...

    I love Dan Pfeiffer and I'm definitely a friend of the pod "Pod Save America." This book was enjoyable as long as you know what you're in for. It's not: - an Obama biography. - a complete rehash of the 2016 election. - a hatchet job on Clinton and/or Sanders. It is: - A memoi...

    I am an avid Pod Save America fan, and I am always happy to invest in safe advice from the funniest political commentators around. This book had some really good advice for Dems moving into 2018 and 2020 that I hope is heeded, and some even better stories of life in Obama's White H...

    Really enjoyed reading this one by Pod Save America host, Dan Pfeiffer. He writes just like he talks on the podcast, so I could "hear" everything the way he says it. I liked how he told stories about his time in the Obama White House, including his own missteps, and I also liked how he...

    ?If we play their game, we lose. We have to change the game.?- Barack People like Dan give me hope that there?s so much that (still) can be done to move our nation toward a more equitable and democratic society. ...

    Why? Why do I torture myself by reading books written by President Obama's staff? I actually burst into tears when I read the last lines of this book. Because I never realized how much I could miss a President. I read them because it reminds me of what we are capable of. I read the...

    This probably wasn?t the right book for me to read right now, but it was both easily accessible and a book I could at least get myself through. I enjoyed Dan?s voice a lot, as always, and I gave this book some extra credit for the stellar event at the 92nd Street Y. Hey, I finis...

    I have a hard time putting a rating on this, because Dan is my favorite and this is really good, but this was absolutely the wrong time for me to read this book. Three stars it is. ...

    Since the election it has been hard to be positive about the state of our country. I read as much as I can stomach and listen to as many podcasts as my ears will tolerate and have been to more marches in my life, but this book does offer a sense of hope and lays out some steps on how t...

    I?m a fan of Pod Save America, so I?m familiar with Dan?s delivery of information. I like a book that, when I?m reading, I can hear the author speaking - and that?s what this does. I needed to read this; a nice bit of looking back on the Obama years, and some great advice for...

    Ive said it before, but Goodreads really needs the ability to add a DNF rating. Former Obama White House Communications Director (and current host of Pod Save America) Dan PFeiffer's book Yes We (Still) Can is part memoir and part political road map for the future. While I quite enj...

    This one is hard for me to review. I love Pfeiffer (Friend of the Pod) and was happy that this is not another Obama White House memoir but it was a bit too polemical for me. It?s a really nice deconstruction of WTF just happened and what can we do going forward. ...

    There?s been a glut of Obama WH memoirs hitting publishing lately and I?m here for them. A few weeks back, I blazed through Dan Pfeiffer?s ?Yes We Still Can? enthralled with his recounting of his years as Obama?s communications director. If you?re a friend of Pod Save Ame...

    Yes We (Still) Can: Politics in the Age of Obama, Twitter, and Trump by Dan Pfeiffer ?Yes We (Still) Can? is a surprisingly good and insightful account on the Obama campaigns and in the White House and the current state of politics. Former communications director and current co-...

    This was more like a memoir than I expected. I think in the intro he even said it wasn't a memoir, but I think it was. There are some practical ideas for coming elections, but it's more descriptive than prescriptive. ...

    I'm reading my way through a lot of books about American politics at the moment and this is probably the one with the clearest perspective on what went wrong for the Democratic Party and sets out the clearest plan for what the author things they should do next. If you listen to Pod Sav...

    Just the book I needed. Part therapeutic reminiscing of the good old Obama days and part a focused approach for the way forward, Yes We (Still) Can will give you a brief escape from the current insanity but also provide hope that we actually might survive. Will probably need to read ag...

    I love politics, particularly American politics. I study political science, I follow the news regarding all things Trump religiously, and almost all the podcasts I listen to are about politics (Pod Save America is, of course, one of them). However, there was always one thing that I jus...

    This was among the better ones of the post-Obama memoirs and believe me, I have read them all. There is a familiar story that runs through them-so much life-changing home, can't believe they win, then surprise at how cool Obama is and so chill, impressed by being in the WH day to day, ...

    This was a really excellent deconstruction of how we went from Obama to Trump, focusing on messaging and communication both from the White House and the media. I felt like this book, more than any of the political memoirs I've read, really dove into what happened, what the larger socie...

    I miss President Obama. ...

    As a fan of Dan Pfeiffer on the podcast Pod Save America, I knew I wanted to read his book as soon as I heard about it. It offers an insightful look at the author's time in the Obama administration, the difficulties faced and the pleasure to work for a man he so respected. The book is ...

    If you listen to the pod, you're already getting this book and you know what to expect. I really can't say what this book would be like to read if you aren't already a Friend of the Pod. It's good. Not great, but good. There are some funny anecdotes. It doesn't get into the weeds, it's...

    Solid and substantive. It's really interesting to see how someone got to such a high level at such a young age, and Pfeiffer's work ethic and intellect certainly comes through. My only criticism is that it's more of a prescriptive politics and campaigning book than a book of anecdotes ...

    ?Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.? ? President Barack Obama . . How the **ck do we ended up here, and what do we do now? are the core questions Dan Pfeiffer answers...

    I love Dan Pfeiffer and I'm definitely a friend of the pod "Pod Save America." This book was enjoyable as long as you know what you're in for. It's not: - an Obama biography. - a complete rehash of the 2016 election. - a hatchet job on Clinton and/or Sanders. It is: - A memoi...

    I am an avid Pod Save America fan, and I am always happy to invest in safe advice from the funniest political commentators around. This book had some really good advice for Dems moving into 2018 and 2020 that I hope is heeded, and some even better stories of life in Obama's White H...

    Really enjoyed reading this one by Pod Save America host, Dan Pfeiffer. He writes just like he talks on the podcast, so I could "hear" everything the way he says it. I liked how he told stories about his time in the Obama White House, including his own missteps, and I also liked how he...

    ?If we play their game, we lose. We have to change the game.?- Barack People like Dan give me hope that there?s so much that (still) can be done to move our nation toward a more equitable and democratic society. ...

    Why? Why do I torture myself by reading books written by President Obama's staff? I actually burst into tears when I read the last lines of this book. Because I never realized how much I could miss a President. I read them because it reminds me of what we are capable of. I read the...

    This probably wasn?t the right book for me to read right now, but it was both easily accessible and a book I could at least get myself through. I enjoyed Dan?s voice a lot, as always, and I gave this book some extra credit for the stellar event at the 92nd Street Y. Hey, I finis...

    I have a hard time putting a rating on this, because Dan is my favorite and this is really good, but this was absolutely the wrong time for me to read this book. Three stars it is. ...

    Since the election it has been hard to be positive about the state of our country. I read as much as I can stomach and listen to as many podcasts as my ears will tolerate and have been to more marches in my life, but this book does offer a sense of hope and lays out some steps on how t...

    I?m a fan of Pod Save America, so I?m familiar with Dan?s delivery of information. I like a book that, when I?m reading, I can hear the author speaking - and that?s what this does. I needed to read this; a nice bit of looking back on the Obama years, and some great advice for...

    Ive said it before, but Goodreads really needs the ability to add a DNF rating. Former Obama White House Communications Director (and current host of Pod Save America) Dan PFeiffer's book Yes We (Still) Can is part memoir and part political road map for the future. While I quite enj...

    This one is hard for me to review. I love Pfeiffer (Friend of the Pod) and was happy that this is not another Obama White House memoir but it was a bit too polemical for me. It?s a really nice deconstruction of WTF just happened and what can we do going forward. ...

    There?s been a glut of Obama WH memoirs hitting publishing lately and I?m here for them. A few weeks back, I blazed through Dan Pfeiffer?s ?Yes We Still Can? enthralled with his recounting of his years as Obama?s communications director. If you?re a friend of Pod Save Ame...

    Yes We (Still) Can: Politics in the Age of Obama, Twitter, and Trump by Dan Pfeiffer ?Yes We (Still) Can? is a surprisingly good and insightful account on the Obama campaigns and in the White House and the current state of politics. Former communications director and current co-...

    This was more like a memoir than I expected. I think in the intro he even said it wasn't a memoir, but I think it was. There are some practical ideas for coming elections, but it's more descriptive than prescriptive. ...

    I'm reading my way through a lot of books about American politics at the moment and this is probably the one with the clearest perspective on what went wrong for the Democratic Party and sets out the clearest plan for what the author things they should do next. If you listen to Pod Sav...

    Just the book I needed. Part therapeutic reminiscing of the good old Obama days and part a focused approach for the way forward, Yes We (Still) Can will give you a brief escape from the current insanity but also provide hope that we actually might survive. Will probably need to read ag...

    I love politics, particularly American politics. I study political science, I follow the news regarding all things Trump religiously, and almost all the podcasts I listen to are about politics (Pod Save America is, of course, one of them). However, there was always one thing that I jus...

    This was among the better ones of the post-Obama memoirs and believe me, I have read them all. There is a familiar story that runs through them-so much life-changing home, can't believe they win, then surprise at how cool Obama is and so chill, impressed by being in the WH day to day, ...

    This was a really excellent deconstruction of how we went from Obama to Trump, focusing on messaging and communication both from the White House and the media. I felt like this book, more than any of the political memoirs I've read, really dove into what happened, what the larger socie...

    I almost didn't want to read this because I miss Obama so much. (Remember when we had a president that read full books? Many of them? And then shared his recommendations?) However, some days the only news I can handle consuming is brought to me by Crooked Media, so I figured I should...

    This book was a great look into Dan Pfeiffer's time in the Obama campaign and administration, as well as the current media landscape in the US. I love Dan's voice on Pod Save America and I loved his voice in this book. I don't think it's really a 'how to move forward'-guide, apart from...

    It?s refreshing to see a book that?s like 50% memoir and 50% lessons the Democrats can use to comeback as a stronger party. Great read. It?s also inspiring and to see a guy write so personally about a boss he admires. Especially when the current President?s staff thinks the...

    I listened to this book because I listen to Dan on Pod Save America. It was everything I hoped for! I loved hearing about Dan's experiences working on the campaign and in the White House, and hearing personal stories about Barack Obama. I love hearing that he's really every bit as good...

    I have a hard time putting a rating on this, because Dan is my favorite and this is really good, but this was absolutely the wrong time for me to read this book. Three stars it is. ...

    Since the election it has been hard to be positive about the state of our country. I read as much as I can stomach and listen to as many podcasts as my ears will tolerate and have been to more marches in my life, but this book does offer a sense of hope and lays out some steps on how t...

    I?m a fan of Pod Save America, so I?m familiar with Dan?s delivery of information. I like a book that, when I?m reading, I can hear the author speaking - and that?s what this does. I needed to read this; a nice bit of looking back on the Obama years, and some great advice for...

    I miss President Obama. ...

    As a fan of Dan Pfeiffer on the podcast Pod Save America, I knew I wanted to read his book as soon as I heard about it. It offers an insightful look at the author's time in the Obama administration, the difficulties faced and the pleasure to work for a man he so respected. The book is ...

    If you listen to the pod, you're already getting this book and you know what to expect. I really can't say what this book would be like to read if you aren't already a Friend of the Pod. It's good. Not great, but good. There are some funny anecdotes. It doesn't get into the weeds, it's...

    Solid and substantive. It's really interesting to see how someone got to such a high level at such a young age, and Pfeiffer's work ethic and intellect certainly comes through. My only criticism is that it's more of a prescriptive politics and campaigning book than a book of anecdotes ...

    ?Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.? ? President Barack Obama . . How the **ck do we ended up here, and what do we do now? are the core questions Dan Pfeiffer answers...

    I love Dan Pfeiffer and I'm definitely a friend of the pod "Pod Save America." This book was enjoyable as long as you know what you're in for. It's not: - an Obama biography. - a complete rehash of the 2016 election. - a hatchet job on Clinton and/or Sanders. It is: - A memoi...

    I am an avid Pod Save America fan, and I am always happy to invest in safe advice from the funniest political commentators around. This book had some really good advice for Dems moving into 2018 and 2020 that I hope is heeded, and some even better stories of life in Obama's White H...

    Really enjoyed reading this one by Pod Save America host, Dan Pfeiffer. He writes just like he talks on the podcast, so I could "hear" everything the way he says it. I liked how he told stories about his time in the Obama White House, including his own missteps, and I also liked how he...

    ?If we play their game, we lose. We have to change the game.?- Barack People like Dan give me hope that there?s so much that (still) can be done to move our nation toward a more equitable and democratic society. ...

    Ive said it before, but Goodreads really needs the ability to add a DNF rating. Former Obama White House Communications Director (and current host of Pod Save America) Dan PFeiffer's book Yes We (Still) Can is part memoir and part political road map for the future. While I quite enj...

    This one is hard for me to review. I love Pfeiffer (Friend of the Pod) and was happy that this is not another Obama White House memoir but it was a bit too polemical for me. It?s a really nice deconstruction of WTF just happened and what can we do going forward. ...

    There?s been a glut of Obama WH memoirs hitting publishing lately and I?m here for them. A few weeks back, I blazed through Dan Pfeiffer?s ?Yes We Still Can? enthralled with his recounting of his years as Obama?s communications director. If you?re a friend of Pod Save Ame...

    Yes We (Still) Can: Politics in the Age of Obama, Twitter, and Trump by Dan Pfeiffer ?Yes We (Still) Can? is a surprisingly good and insightful account on the Obama campaigns and in the White House and the current state of politics. Former communications director and current co-...

    This was more like a memoir than I expected. I think in the intro he even said it wasn't a memoir, but I think it was. There are some practical ideas for coming elections, but it's more descriptive than prescriptive. ...

    I'm reading my way through a lot of books about American politics at the moment and this is probably the one with the clearest perspective on what went wrong for the Democratic Party and sets out the clearest plan for what the author things they should do next. If you listen to Pod Sav...

    Just the book I needed. Part therapeutic reminiscing of the good old Obama days and part a focused approach for the way forward, Yes We (Still) Can will give you a brief escape from the current insanity but also provide hope that we actually might survive. Will probably need to read ag...

    I love politics, particularly American politics. I study political science, I follow the news regarding all things Trump religiously, and almost all the podcasts I listen to are about politics (Pod Save America is, of course, one of them). However, there was always one thing that I jus...

    This was among the better ones of the post-Obama memoirs and believe me, I have read them all. There is a familiar story that runs through them-so much life-changing home, can't believe they win, then surprise at how cool Obama is and so chill, impressed by being in the WH day to day, ...

    This was a really excellent deconstruction of how we went from Obama to Trump, focusing on messaging and communication both from the White House and the media. I felt like this book, more than any of the political memoirs I've read, really dove into what happened, what the larger socie...

    I almost didn't want to read this because I miss Obama so much. (Remember when we had a president that read full books? Many of them? And then shared his recommendations?) However, some days the only news I can handle consuming is brought to me by Crooked Media, so I figured I should...

    This book was a great look into Dan Pfeiffer's time in the Obama campaign and administration, as well as the current media landscape in the US. I love Dan's voice on Pod Save America and I loved his voice in this book. I don't think it's really a 'how to move forward'-guide, apart from...

    It?s refreshing to see a book that?s like 50% memoir and 50% lessons the Democrats can use to comeback as a stronger party. Great read. It?s also inspiring and to see a guy write so personally about a boss he admires. Especially when the current President?s staff thinks the...

    I LOVE DAN. Review to come ...

    Great book! The perfect blend of entertainment, insightfulness, and nostalgia. I learned a lot about the ins and out of how election and White House communications? teams function, and also how we can use their best strategies to carve a path forward. I miss President Obama every day...
