The Price of Politics, Bob Woodward
1 Bob Woodward The Price of Politics
Simon & Schuster 2012 1451651104 / 9781451651102 First Edition Hardcover New New 
This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. The book chronicles the inside story of how Pres. Obama and the Congress tried, and failed, to restore the American economy and set it on a course to stability. It spans the yrs just before Obama's inauguration in early 2009 and lasting through the summer of 2012. This is the secret world of Washington policymaking crafted from notes, documents, interviews and more. At the center is a high stakes personal and political struggle between the president and the speaker of the house and takes the reader through the attempts to make a "grand bargain" of entitlement cuts and increased tax revenue. It shows how this bargain was never reached and why, and how the players settled for stopgap measures and nothing more. Fascinating inside look at Washington, gridlock, party lines, and who really suffers, the American public.

The book spans 3 centuries of history and offers intimate portraits of world leaders.
