    I believe most will agree with the title of Mark Greenberg’s book of text and photos. Where the division comes likely will be between those who hoped for more and those who resent the years that he occupied the Office of President of the United States. For the latter, there is little reason to read further. This book jumped into my hands when I passed the “recently acquired” section of our local library. The first page that it opened to was a picture of President Obama at the White House Correspo I believe most will agree with the title of Mark Greenberg’s book of text and photos. Where the division comes likely will be between those who hoped for more and those who resent the years that he occupied the Office of President of the United States. For the latter, there is little reason to read further. This book jumped into my hands when I passed the “recently acquired” section of our local library. The first page that it opened to was a picture of President Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner (2105) at a podium with Keegan-Michael Key behind him as Luther (the “anger translator”) from the famous routine of Key & Peele’s show on Comedy Central. The accompanying text showed the give and take he was willing to engage in with the press corps. Pictures can lie, words can be false, but this thoughtful and restrained man comes across in this book as empathetic, engaged and full of humor. The pictures are excellent and use both the general media photographers and Peter Souza, the White House photographer (who has just published his own book). Some speeches are included in their entirety. There are some unusual sections such as the discussion between Tweed Roosevelt (Teddy’s great grandson) and the President about Teddy leading a “reluctant” horse up an incline near the Grand Canyon. President Obama says, “That photograph was given to me by a cousin of yours who said that it was one of TR’s favorite pictures because it reminded him of his dealings with Congress.” Despite the challenges of getting legislation passed during his time in office his Administration came through with: Greater health care coverage Avoiding another economic depression Taking one of the world’s greatest terrorists out of the picture Providing controls on the excesses of Wall Street Giving us more options with the government of Cuba Taking positive steps to address climate change with technology and world leadership This is a man who sought consensus, had the most extraordinary relationship with his Vice President, and strived to acknowledge accomplishments of others and comfort a nation in a vast variety of situations. It reminded me how much I had taken those things for granted.

    Oversized coffee-table style book that is worth checking out or buying for the pictures alone. Contains whole speeches, stories, and commentary from the author. Seems to really capture the spirit of the Obama years--including many fun moments but also the sad and poignant ones. Hard not to feel wistful reading it in 2017.

    While I don’t usually pay much attention to coffee-table style books unless they’re art books, this one is quite a lovely volume. Not only does it contain some of the most famous photographs taken at the White House during the Obama years by Pete Souza, but also the speeches, some of the official correspondence, and legislative decisions from the Obama presidency. It’s a nice reminder of a more diplomatic time in American politics.

    I was a bit disappointed--by editing mistakes. Both grammatical and factual. I had hoped for a better job given the subject and the expected audience. Overall, I did enjoy this commemorative book.

    Insightful. Not the best Obama book or the best selling, but solid.

    4.0 / 5.0 Nice sampling of speeches interspersed with commentary and pertinent pictures. Particularly enjoyed text of speeches. What a dramatic difference from today's tone. All sounds so much better than me. How time flies and how soon we forget. 4.0 / 5.0 Nice sampling of speeches interspersed with commentary and pertinent pictures.

    This was an impulse check out at the library after it caught my eye sitting among the other new releases. It's a very gorgeous large coffee table style book full of fantastic photography and several of his speeches included in their entirety. Overall a nice overview of Obama's historic presidency.

    These amazing pictures are interspersed with President Obama's addresses to the nation during times of celebration and mourning and reflection. These wonderful pictures and words seem like a lifeline right now, reminding me that "the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice."

    Many photographs and what seems to be an honest assessment of the president's accomplishments make up this large and attractive volume. Many photographs and what seems to be an honest assessment of the president's accomplishments make up this large and attractive volume.

    A celebration of the Obama presidency. Beautiful photos and essays. I read it crying over our country’s idiotic decision to follow this guy with the current waking cesspool. 5 Dancing Obamas.

    "Obama: The Historic Presidency" by Mark Greenberg was published by Sterling in 2017. This cocktail table book contains many autobiographical references such as inauguration, farewell, summit, and national conference speeches with pictorial storylines and numerous analytical references. The book highlights Obama's challenges, family life, commander in chief actions, humor, and digital technology influences. I enjoyed reading the book and reflecting on the book's photographic storylines. (P) "Obama: The Historic Presidency" by Mark Greenberg was published by Sterling in 2017.

    Magnificent, nostalgic book that reminds me of a better time in US Politics. History will look very fondly on Obama, perhaps as one of the greatest US Presidents of all time. (and this is coming from someone who preferred Trump over Hillary). It was really interesting reminiscing over so much that Obama achieved and didn't achieve. The book looks back at all the challenges that Obama faced and includes some very interesting and revealing pictures of Obama's time at The White House.
