The Audacity of Help by John Wasik
This new book by John Wasik demonstrates both the power and danger of of an instant book. By coincidence last week as I was reading the book my ten-year-old son asked me if there were any new books out on President Obama since he has become President. I was able to show him this book, the unspoken- yes books can be relevant, and everything is not on the web. The books subtitle is Obamaâ€™ s Economic Plan and the Remaking of American Who wins, who loses in health care, education and energy.
Wasik presents a largely sympathetic view of the action of the Obama administration and its plans for the future. He presents a succinct history of the economic crisis, laying bare the various stages that brought about the crisis. He then goes through point-by-point the initial actions of the Obama administration as reflected by the stimulus package and the budget that was approved. The author does a good job of presenting the campaign promises of Obama, them comparing them with the bills that have emerged from Congress. By doing so he presents the most in-depth presentation I have read on the details of the stimulus package and the subsequent budget bill.
