The Amateur

The Amateur by Edward KleinFront Cover

Think you know the real Barack Obama? You don’t—not until you’ve read The Amateur

Amazon link –

In this stunning exposé, bestselling author Edward Klein—a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, former foreign editor of Newsweek, and former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine—pulls back the curtain on one of the most secretive White Houses in history. He reveals a callow, thin-skinned, arrogant president with messianic dreams of grandeur supported by a cast of true-believers, all of them united by leftist politics and an amateurish understanding of executive leadership.

In The Amateur you’ll discover:

  • Why the so-called “centrist” Obama is actually in revolt against the values of the society he was elected to lead
  • Why Bill Clinton loathes Barack Obama and tried to get Hillary to run against him in 2012
  • The spiteful rivalry between Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey
  • How Obama split the Kennedy family
  • How Obama has taken more of a personal role in making foreign policy than any president since Richard Nixon—with disastrous results
  • How Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett are the real powers behind the White House throne

The Amateur is a reporter’s book, buttressed by nearly 200 interviews, many of them with the insiders who know Obama best. The result is the most important political book of the year. You will never look at Barack Obama the same way again.

Table of Contents:




What a fascinating and frightening in-depth look at Obama’s presidency and just how much damage his policies have done to this country. Each chapter touches upon individuals, groups, races, and countries this man has used and tossed aside, or fucked up: Oprah; Caroline Kennedy; Reverend Wright; African Americans who fought to get him elected; Israel, and more. And most of the interviews are from people on his side who have witnessed him performing his job as POTUS who are as fed up with him as the other half of the country who didn’t vote this clown into office. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this book. I have my opinion about Obama’s presidency but I found a new understanding of why he does what he does, namely Michelle bossing him around. The reason he is so off track is because he doesn’t take advice form people who know, he just likes to hear himself speak and have his lackey’s agree.

Bravo Mr Klein,

The title of the book, and former President Clinton‘s comment, say it all.

Judging from the shallow comments of those who have rated the book with one star, it is clear that they: 1) have not read the book, and 2) are extreme left wing birthers, e.g. those who believe Obama, the anointed one, was born in a manger in Bethlehem.

Thank you for your courage in writing this valuable book, and for the great service you have done the country. It is truly shameful that the majority of your colleagues in the media can no longer be counted on to perform the 4th estate’s previous function of vetting those who would aspire to be our leaders. This
derelection of duty on their part is unprecedented in US history.

If, like me, you’ve never been a fan of Obama and have always had the feeling he was not at all what he is presented to be, this book will certainly serve to confirm that opinion. If you are an Obama acolyte…you are likely to distrust it very much. However…..if merely 1/8 of what is presented her is actually factual then we are in even more trouble than I ever imagined.
