The book is rather like an extended editorial. The author, unable to interview either of the Obamas, relied primarily upon the Internet and other media for her information. Thus, for Obama aficionados, there wasn’t much new information.
However there was serious discussion about the racism, sexism, and ageism in the 2008 election. The book ends with election night so its primary subject is the campaign. The author particularly analyzed the media's treatment of Michelle Obama both the hateful and the adoring media treatments.
The author is an Obama supporter and clearly believes Barack Obama - and Michelle for that matter - to be transformational figures in American history. I wholeheartedly agree. Long may they reign.
