From Obama's former communications director and current co-host of Pod Save America comes a colorful account of how politics, the media, and the Internet changed during the Obama presidency and how Democrats can fight back in the Trump era. On November 9th, 2016, Dan Pfeiffer woke up like most of the world wondering WTF just happened. How had Donald Trump won the White House? How was it that a decent and thoughtful president had been succeeded by a buffoonish reality star, and what do we do now? Instead of throwing away his phone and moving to another country (which were his first and second thoughts), Pfeiffer decided to tell this surreal story, recounting how Barack Obama navigated the insane political forces that created Trump, explaining why everyone got 2016 wrong, and offering a path for where Democrats go from here. Pfeiffer was one of Obama's first hires when he decided to run for president, and was at his side through two presidential campaigns and six years in the White House. Using never-before-heard stories and behind-the-scenes anecdotes, Pfeiffer examines how Obama succeeded despite Twitter trolls, Fox News (and their fake news), and a Republican Party that lost its collective mind. An irreverent, no-BS take on the crazy politics of our time.… (més)

Pfeiffer provides a short nostalgic trip back to the Obama presidency and his duties as communications director. Throughout the book, Pfeiffer provides comparisons to how the Obama administration handled things vs. what the Trump administration does now. He blasts Fox News (with the exception of Chris Wallace) and recounts a number of insider stories on how successful the Obama White House was in communications and when they were not. There are some great insights into the two campaigns for Presidency and that can serve as a template for future Democratic candidates.

No leaks. No scandals. No Drama Obama. No embarrassing tweets. No racist comments. God, how I miss those days.

I loved this characterization of Obama by David Plouffe. Barack Obama is a "Chess Player in a city of Checker Players."

Great read. Interesting stories and insights... ( )

Interesting and nostalgic look into the inner workings of the Obama White House ( )

t's probably important to know that I am a Friend of The Pod. Pod Save America is my #1 Crooked Media podcast but I subscribe to several others and the What A Day newsletter. I am not similar in any obvious way to Jon, Jon, Tommy and Dan (I'm a baby boomer - we're not all bad, Lovett). But I feel like we've been on the same emotional rollercoaster since November 9, 2016.

Dan was Obama's communications director but not a speechwriter per se. Yet this book (which I read as opposed to listening) felt like an extension of the podcasts and was written in an honest and compelling manner. And there are footnotes - lots of funny footnotes which made reading a little tough. Since I read on a kindle I used my kindle app to go back and forth!

There are stories but no gossip (as Dan said he's not an asshole) from the Obama years. It's obvious Dan admires Barack Obama. I enjoyed reading about his interaction with other members of the Obama team. And it was a team. Because I do this - I googled past communications directors to understand his role. President Obama had 5 directors in 8 years as president. Today -in the first 19 months in Trumpland there have been 6 directors.

If you are a Trump supporter you will not like this book so don't bother. If you are an Obama fan or someone who's unsure about their feelings about President Obama - I highly recommend it. ( )

4.5 / 5

Positive, objective and optimistic analysis of Pfeiffer´s time working for President Obama as his communications director. Pfeiffer takes a look at the pros and cons of working for Obama, sharing anecdotes and stories working with Barack as well as many other politicians throughout his career (Tom Daschle, Steve Hildebrand and Evan Bayh).
Comprehensive, this follows Obama´s years in the White House, the pros and cons.
Internet usage changed while Obama was President and despite his warning was used to circumvent and change the political state of the USA today. He also offers suggestions of how we can make sure this never happens again to our politics and our future.
This book gave me hope for the future, and the future of our democracy. Trumps exploitation of people, race, sex, government, taxes, and foreign policy, is just a symptom, hopefully we can cure this disease.
Very comprehensive and presented in a way that is easy to read and follow. There is hope for a more inclusive and less corrupt future. ( )

This was more like a memoir than I expected. I think in the intro he even said it wasn't a memoir, but I think it was. There are some practical ideas for coming elections, but it's more descriptive than prescriptive. ( )
