David Axelrod, top political advisor to Presidents Clinton and Obama, was 5 years old when John F. Kennedy was running for president. He got to shake Kennedy’s hand on a day he stopped in Illinois. Axelrod recounts the details of the encounter that marked the beginning of his fascination with all things political. As he describes working his way from political reporter to political advisor of some of the most powerful men in this country, his memoir is filled with compelling anecdotes. Although his delivery is monotone in some instances, it doesn’t diminish the power of his words. In particular, the last quarter of the production, which describes Barack Obama’s successful campaign and election to the presidency, is dynamite listening. E.E.S.
