The Promise: President Obama, Year One is a book by Jonathan Alter describing President Obama's first year in office. In The Promise, Alter describes the many challenges President Obama's administration faced in its first year: a troubled economy, passing Healthcare Reform, and the War in Afghanistan. Alter discusses the ability of the White House to avoid another Great Depression and accomplish many of Obama's campaign promises, yet still fail to effectively communicate their impact to the American public.[1]
