Description

Barack Obama himself told veteran political reporter Richard Wolffe, You ll get more access than anyone else , and Renegade is his unique story of how a political newcomer with no money and an outsider s name grew into the world s most powerful leader. But it is also a uniquely intimate portrait of the person behind the iconic posters, the man codenamed Renegade by the Secret Service when protecting him. Wolffe portrays an historic candidate and his until now inscrutable character and campaign in untold, stunning detail, from his university lecturer s office in Iowa to the Oval Office in Washington. With unprecedented access, gained over a dozen exclusive interviews with Obama, Wolffe shares with us his front row seat. We fly on the candidate s plane and ride in his bus on an odyssey across a country in crisis; we stand next to him at a bar on the night he secures the nomination; and feel the tension backstage as he delivers his convention speech to a stadium crowd and a transfixed TV audience. ENEGADE is not just an election epic but is also an insightful biography of the new President of the United States.show more
