I've got another audible credit to spend, I'm kinda unsure whether I'll be able to sit through this one.

On the one hand, political leadership and team management in times of crisis are interesting topics and the book seems to give insights that reach beyond the dim and truncated reach of mainstream media. On the other, Suskind seems to ignore Obama's connection to Wall Street (pre 2008) - and his choice of advisors - , which I consider to be a much more reasonable explanation for the free reign of speculative investment and failure to react to the financial crisis than blaming it on Obama's inexperience or conflicting POVs in the party.

Has anybody in here read it?
