  • Illuminating ... For those who wonder how they do it - here's how

    Amanda Foreman
  • Lurid and irresistable

    David Remnick, The New Yorker
  • This book is one of the first to give us a sense what the reasons were for the stumbles, the drift, the malaise that many of his own supporters believe has hung over Barack Obama since the day he came to power

    Justin Webb, The Observer
  • In lesser hands The Obamas would be an act of astonishing overreach, but Ms. Kantor has earned the voice of authority. A meticulous reporter, Ms. Kantor is attuned to the nuance of small gestures, the import of unspoken truths. The Obamas is full of gossipy tidbits that fuel a narrative about their marriage and how it has shaped the presidency

    Connie Schultz, The New York Times
  • Jodi Kantor's book, The Obamas: A Mission, A Marriage, is a stylish examination of the complexities and tensions within the presidential marriage

    Evening Standard
  • Laboriously researched and thoughtfully written...Kantor digs for detail and strikes gold

    Giles Whitell, The Times
  • Kantor interviewed some 200 aides and officials, friends and relatives to give us the fullest picture of this presidency yet

    Kate Figes, The Telegraph
  • Kantor reveals the conflict between maintaining a public and private life, and the overwhelming sense of confinement inside the White House

    Christina Lamb, Sunday Times
  • When you're president and first lady of the United States of America, the personal is the political...That is as it should be. That is what actually happens in the White House. And Kantor's book is one of the best portraits yet of the arguments in this particular White House

    Ezra Klein, The New York Times
