Special Order—Subject to Availability


From NBC's award-winning Chief White House Correspondent-a strikingly provocative, behind-the-scenes account of President Obama's White House tenure.
Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008 partly because he was a Washington outsider. But when he got to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, that distinction turned out to be double-bladed. While he'd been a brilliant campaign politician, working inside the system-as president-turned out to be more of a challenge than Obama had ever imagined.
In THE STRANGER, Chuck Todd draws upon his unprecedented inner-circle sources to create a gripping, fly-on-the-wall narrative. The result is the definitive account of Barack Obama's audacious dive into the White House deep end.
