Renegade: The Making of a President - Richard Wolffe

What more is there to learn about Barack Obama and his campaign? In Renegade (Crown, $26), Richard Wolffe followed Obama’s campaign and was able to spend a good deal of face time with the candidate. He has done an admirable job of taking observations and digesting them and organizing his interviews into an exceptionally coherent narrative about the campaign and about the candidate. We learn among much else that President Obama has a remarkable ability to learn from his mistakes and incorporate that learning into his next steps; he has a group of grownups around him, accomplished people in their own right—not sycophants dependent on the candidate for their identity. The President touches base with them when he needs advice—and he accepts their advice.
