The world as it is : a memoir of the Obama White House
Rhodes, Ben2018
Books
For nearly ten years, Ben Rhodes saw almost everything that happened at the center of the Obama administration -- first as a speechwriter, then as deputy national security advisor, and finally as a multipurpose aide and close collaborator. He started every morning in the Oval Office with the President's Daily Brief, traveled the world with Obama, and was at the center of some of the most consequential and controversial moments of the presidency. Now he tells the full story of his partnership -- and, ultimately, friendship -- with a man who also happened to be a historic president of the United States.
