What a beautiful Book! This book of photographs of President Obama during his two terms is just so hard to describe. The pictures are sharp and technically perfect while at the same time really sensitive. President Obama has an expressive face which lends itself well to pictures and Souza has done a masterful job of capturing these expressions. Special mention must be made of pics with kids where Obama is at his best. This is a book that everybody must own.

A beautiful book. The photographs are awesome. It's obvious that Pete Souza, the photographer, after spending 8 years, day in and day out, with Barack Obama has tremendous respect and admiration for his 'subject'. The only thing that would make this book even better is more text and stories to accompany the photos.

White House photographer Pete Souza provides a documentary of eight years in the Obama presidency in this collection, just a small fraction of the photographs he took in those years. Things are organized chronologically, with the photographer providing commentary as needed. The photographs are poignant and powerful at times, and at others light and funny. Souza's gift as a photographer shines through, with the collection overall proving to be compelling. One misses this president, all the more so with his replacement, and you have to feel sorry for the poor soul currently occupying the job Souza had.

I absolutely loved this book of stories and photos from , Pete's time as an official photographer to the Obama administration, some wonderful behind the scenes photos including the Osama Bin Laden raid, and the fight for health care reform.
