Review The Obamas: The White House Years


This is a beautiful coffee table book on The Obamas. No matter what political side of the line you fall on, I think it's important to take a good non-biased look at The Presidency in all it's forms and incantations. I love looking at books on the different presidents and their day to day lives, as well as the important moments in their presidency. This book on The Obamas showcases important political moments as well as personal moments the family encounters in The White House. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in studying the presidents and their lives.
