Publisher's Summary

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. Drawn from memos, contemporaneous meeting notes, emails, and in-depth interviews with the central players, The Price of Politics addresses the key issue of the presidential and congressional campaigns: the condition of the American economy and how and why we got there.

Providing verbatim, day-by-day, even hour-by-hour accounts, the book shows what really happened, what drove the debates, negotiations, and struggles that define, and will continue to define, the American future.

    Story
    "Very detailed on one area only, needed a bit more."
    Where does The Price of Politics rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Woodward has done better in the past, not a bad read. He plays it pretty middle of the road.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The incompetence of the Obama administration.


    If you could give The Price of Politics a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Why we need to fire Obama

    Story
    "Interesting but too much detail"

    The story is good and provides insight but has such detailed narratives (the constant back and forth asking for more cuts or revenue) that one can easily become lost.
