Publisher's Summary

Working behind the scenes for 18 months, Woodward has written the most intimate and sweeping portrait of Obama making the critical decisions on the Afghanistan War, the secret war in Pakistan and the worldwide fight against terrorism. Drawing on internal memos, classified documents, meeting notes and hundreds of hours of interviews with most of the key players, including the president, Woodward offers an original, you-are-there account of Obama and his team in this time of turmoil and uncertainty.

Great book.

Woodward did much to capture in a single book the progression of the wars which shaped our world. He painted a striking picture of some of the most complicated issues of our time.

Insider Access Like no Other

Required reading for all Americans...Get ready for a deluge of facts and insights into why the Afganistand/Pakistan challenges are so great and frieghtening. I didn't find the writing style particularly good but it's easy to get past if an insiders pass to Washington is what your desire.
