Jonathan Alter - The Promise: President Obama, Year One
Jonathan Alter, Newsweek's Senior Editor and author of its popular "Conventional Wisdom Watch" returns to the JCC Jewish Book & Arts Fair to speak on his second book about an American president. Alter chronicles the first year of President Barak Obama's administration from late 2008's pre-inauguration through the passage of the health care reform bill in March, 2010. How is his book different from the other recent books written about Obama's campaign and first year in office? This fast paced and insightful narrative offers a unique access inside the White House, detailing his management style and his thought process using "decision trees" of thoughts to formulate the economic bailout, the war in Afghanistan and the health care bill. Alter provides information from hundreds of interviews, including ones with the President's aides, that give new anecdotes and details. The spotlight of this book centers on President Obama and his inner circle.  In addition to his work with Newsweek, Alter is a contributing correspondent for NBC News and author of The Defining Moment: FDR's Hundred Days and the Triumph of Hope.
