Like Politics? You’ll Like These Books

Yesterday I shared my first set of political news links. Today, I’m also recommending a few books about politics, legislation, and government. All of these authors have well-established reputations for being astute observers of the political process. If you want to go beyond the short-term focus of the news cycle and look at broader political themes, these look like four of the best recently-released (and in one case, soon-to-be-released) books you can buy.

The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court (by Jeffrey Toobin)


The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era (by Michael Grunwald)


The Price of Politics (by Bob Woodward)


The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail – But Some Don't (by Nate Silver)
