Bob Woodward Announces Title of his Obama Book

Obamas-WarsSimon & Schuster announced today that Bob Woodward’s 16th book, Obama’s Wars, will be released on September 27. The book will concentrate not on the economy but on the president’s foreign policy. The 441-page investigative work will show Obama “making the critical decisions on the Afghanistan War, the secret war in Pakistan and the worldwide fight against terrorism,” Simon & Schuster announced. An official with knowledge of the book says that Woodward finished writing three weeks ago and that the book will include little on the war in Iraq.

Since winning a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of Watergate with fellow Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein, Woodward has remained an investigative force in Washington D.C., known for his access to top White House information. He wrote four best-sellers on the George W. Bush administration, focusing on foreign policy and the war on terror. As he did with those books, Woodward will draw upon internal memos, documents, and interviews with top sources–including President Obama–for this latest title.

The cover of Obama’s Wars was also unveiled in the Tuesday announcement, and prominently features a profile shot of Obama looking forward with a focused gaze, and key foreign policy players, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Afghan President Hamid Karzai at the bottom.

What do you think, Shelf-Lifers? Will you be reading Obama’s War?

    An open appeal to EW, please get that awful, floating magazine subscription ad off your site! I already subscribe to EW and don’t need to be reminded every single time I come to the web page! It’s not only annoying but it slows my computer to a halt. Does anyone else out there agree with me?
