    Based on 18 months of reporting, Woodward's 17th book The Price of Politics is an intimate, documented examination of how President Obama and the highest profile Republican and Democratic leaders in the United States Congress attempted to restore the American economy and improve the federal government's fiscal condition over three and one half years. The Price of Politics addresses the key issue of the presidential and congressional campaigns: the condition of the American economy.

    Great insider story of Obama's White House. Seems based on Bob's reporting, most of Obama's current problems he created in some-part on his own. Not taking political sides just download book and reach your own opinion. Very written done story by author.
