    Three and a half years ago, David Sanger’s book The Inheritance: The World Obama Confronts and the Challenges to American Power described how a new American president came to office with the world on fire. Now, just as the 2012 presidential election battle begins, Sanger follows up with an eye-opening, news-packed account of how Obama has dealt with those challenges, relying on innovative weapons and reconfigured tools of American power to try to manage a series of new threats.

    Bradford C Rowland says: "Put yourself in the shoes of the President"
    "Sobering reminder on what the presidency requires"

    Would you listen to Confront and Conceal again? Why?

    I would. Having read "Wired for War" by Peter Singer, I was curious as to how Sanger was viewing President Obama's policies on the use of drones - and other high-tech warfare. POTUS has to be smart enough to understand how 21st century technology is changing what it means to be at war. My first go-round I would say Sanger is as conflicted as I, but some of the reviews I read say Sanger feels Obama has too much power and is using it improperly. Either I missed something or the reviewers are using their own spin.
