GO BEHIND THE SCENES with Barack as he moves into the White House. Taking office as the 44th president of the United States at a time when the nation was facing insurmountable challenges at home and abroad, Barack was ready. He had been preparing himself for this moment his entire life, and now it was time for him to face the challenges and fulfill his destiny. The gut-wrenching decisions Barack had to make during the four years of his presidency not only guided the country through perilous times, they also revealed the character of the man.
WATCH BARACK TAKING BOLD ACTION to confront the economic crisis; join in his battle to reform the healthcare system and end two wars; follow him around the world, extending the hand of friendship; breathe a sigh of relief with him when Osama bin Laden is finally brought to justice; and feel his agony as he experiences setbacks and defeats.
DISCOVER, SURPRISINGLY, how Barack and his family keep grounded and live fairly normal lives in the White House. And four years later, celebrate with Barack and millions of his supporters when he is re-elected to a second term.
Educational features have been included to facilitate critical thinking, comprehension, and retention, such as: Looking Ahead (chapter previews); Looking Back (end-of-chapter review Q&As); glossary words (with pop-up definitions); a Chronology; a Bibliography; Websites of Interest; and an Index.
