An Amherst College alum, Ben Rhodes was twenty-nine when he went to work for the Obama presidential campaign. For the next decade, he worked as a speechwriter, national security advisor, and aide to the President, with whom he formed a close friendship. The book provides an inside look at a historic presidency and a story of a young man receiving the ultimate political education. I was thrilled to hear and meet the author at Amherst College's Litfest. When I told him I was a librarian, he replied that he loves public libraries and wrote his book inside several of them.
