The Obamas is full of gossipy tidbits that fuel a narrative about their marriage and how it has shaped the presidency -- Connie Schultz * The New York Times * Jodi Kantor's book, The Obamas: A Mission, A Marriage, is a stylish examination of the complexities and tensions within the presidential marriage * Evening Standard * Laboriously researched and thoughtfully written...Kantor digs for detail and strikes gold -- Giles Whitell * The Times * Kantor interviewed some 200 aides and officials, friends and relatives to give us the fullest picture of this presidency yet -- Kate Figes * The Telegraph * Kantor reveals the conflict between maintaining a public and private life, and the overwhelming sense of confinement inside the White House -- Christina Lamb * Sunday Times * When you're president and first lady of the United States of America, the personal is the political...That is as it should be. That is what actually happens in the White House. And Kantor's book is one of the best portraits yet of the arguments in this particular White House -- Ezra Klein * The New York Times *
