    We do not fully appreciate the integrity, compassion and humanity embodied by the Obamas and exemplified in their time as President and First Lady of the United States. In story after story in this book, by every West Wing staffer imaginable from speech writers to the pastry chef to th...

    This is a collection of personal accounts from staffers in the Obama White House (not the ones most people knew by name or saw on TV but people who got stuff done). Another disclosure-first review: I?ve known and adored the editor since grad school so I wouldn?t give this anything ...

    It is only in hindsight, that I completely and totally appreciate the magic that transpired in the White House between 2008-2016. There was such integrity, intelligence and thoughtfulness all through Barack Obama's administration. And that was intentional. Obama wanted to fill his Whit...

    This book is a must read. It?s a collection of essays from different staffers from Obama?s White House. What I liked about this collection is that it was perspectives from people we don?t usually hear from. Almost every story made me tear up. It was so inspirational and hopeful. ...

    offers so much hope for the future ...

    To summarize this book in a single word, I would have to choose hope. This is a love letter to Barack and Michelle, and the entire Obama administration; a resounding call for respect, and achievements through adversity. These individual stories of striving above strife are a resound...

    I suspect that many first impressions for West Wingers will be skewed on a reader's feelings for the Obama family. This book reminds everyone that it was an administration for eight years, not just the 44th President and First Lady. While it's heartening to read each person's experi...

    I loved this book. The voices and stories are so well spoken, moving and important. If you aren't already missing Obama in the White House, you will be after you read this book. Reading this, I was reminded of all the reasons that Obama is the only Democrat that I have ever voted for....

    It comes as no surprise to any of my friends & family that I've gained a bit of an obsession this year with Obama White House staffer books, and this one was no different. One of the most inspirational and heartwarming books I've ever read. To hear about the diverse people who work...

    In the current days of "I alone can fix it," this book was filled with reminders that, in reality, it takes all of us, doing our part, to make this country work for everyone. A collection of personal stories by a variety of staff members from the Obama White House--from a speech writer...
