A superb achievement. With an almost painterly eye, compelling insights and extraordinary access to Barack Obama and his inner circle, Richard Wolffe's Renegade tells the hidden, dramatic story of the 2008 campaign and also reveals much we did not know about the 44th President's life before politics. -- Michael Beschloss, political historian
Renegade offers a deft mix of biography, personal reflection, British wit and old-style journalism. Destined to be a classic in its genre -- Douglas Brinkley, historian and contributing editor, Vanity Fair
Richard Wolffe takes the reader deep inside the campaign, revealing--often for the first time--how the candidate and his closest confidants dealt with the biggest crises in the election. He earned their trust and it paid off handsomely in that he reveals new details and new aspects of the candidate's character that have remained sequestered from view...until now.
-- Michele Norris, US journalist
The first of the President Obama books--and a good one--insightful, thorough and straight. -- Ben Bradlee, vice president at large of The Washington Post
