In addition, the book is based on extensive documentation, including internal memos, letters, chronologies and meeting notes. It will focus on national security, especially the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the fight against terrorism. Woodward has structured the book to answer the questions: How does Obama govern? How and why does he decide? And how does he balance the numerous pressures of the modern presidency? Obama has learned that he is not commander-in-chief of the economy, and many of his high-profile reforms - such as health care, education and energy - have been turned over to Congress.

Very predictable. Boring. Blah. Woodward gives the reader little to think about with this title. He paints Obama as a legitimate thinker although the title is advertised in the media as something that will open your eyes to the limit. It doesn't.
Woodward does have Obama blaming Bush a lot and isn't that easy to blame the one you followed. Republicans do it, too.
Maybe Woodward has lost his touch because his touch is absent in this title. No big deal. No surprises promised to the reader. Just the status quo and the usual...
