Obama: An Intimate Portrait Book Summary

Short-Summary:

Relive the extraordinary Presidency of Barack Obama through White House photographer Pete Souza's behind-the-scenes images and stories in this #1 New York Times bestseller -- with a foreword from the President himself.

During Barack Obama's two terms, Pete Souza was with the President during more crucial moments than anyone else -- and he photographed them all. Souza captured nearly two million photographs of President Obama, in moments highly classified and disarmingly candid. Obama: An Intimate Portrait reproduces more than 300 of Souza's most iconic photographs with fine-art print quality in an oversize collectible format.

Together they document the most consequential hours of the Presidency -- including the historic image of President Obama and his advisors in the Situation Room during the bin Laden mission -- alongside unguarded moments with the President's family, his encounters with children, interactions with world leaders and cultural figures, and more.

Souza's photographs, with the behind-the-scenes captions and stories that accompany them, communicate the pace and power of our nation's highest office. They also reveal the spirit of the extraordinary man who became our President. We see President Obama lead our nation through monumental challenges, comfort us in calamity and loss, share in hard-won victories, and set a singular example to "be kind and be useful," as he would instruct his daughters.

This book puts you in the White House with President Obama, and is a treasured record of a landmark era in American history.

  • Exquisite Photographs

    I own the hardcover version of this book, and if it is judged strictly on the quality of the photography, it warrants a 5 star rating. More importantly, the photographs illustrate the inherent decency, dignity, and humanity of Obama, both as a man and as President of the United States. When browsing through it, I am painfully reminded of the dichotomy between President Obama’s attributes and those of the current occupant of the White House.

    I bought this book first. Then I waited for Michelle Obama’s Becoming book. (Five Stars) I listened to her book then read this. Pete’s book puts the visual to several events Mrs. Obama described. I’m pretty sure I’ll revisit this book again when Former President Obama release his book. ❤️
