Providing an insight into the unseen side of the Obama Administration, Laskas reveals the stories and voices of the American public who sent letters to Obama whilst in office. Interviewing some letter recipients to hear more details about their letters, her book provides an in depth look into the concerns of Americans at the time as well as how those letters influenced and shaped policy produced by the Obama administration.
A must read.
