Read this book from cover to cover. In Oct 2013. Since it was written prior to President Obama's re-election, we've seen the results of his Amateurish stab at leadership as pointed out by this book. The majority of the interviews done by the author are with former friends of Obama (regretfully, there is an entire chapter on Oprah but no interview directly with her, only her representative). This book is very prophetic!! I am sure it will be used as source reference when this Presidency is reflected on in the future.
