With a foreword from Barack Obama himself, this book expands the popular 'New York Times' article from Laskas about Obama's in-office practice of finishing each day by reading ten letters that had been sent to him - an article Obama said was his favourite about his presidency. Many of the letters are brought together here, revealing the concerns, fears, vulnerabilities and hopes of a nation.
