The Price of Politics
"This book examines the struggle between President Obama and the United States Congress to manage federal spending and tax policy for the three and one half years between 2009 and the summer of 2012. More than half the book focuses on the intense 44-day crisis in June and July 2011 when the United States came to the brink of a potentially catastrophic default on its debt."--Note to readers.

Bob Woodward is far removed from the intrepid investigative reporter who helped bring down Richard Nixon in the 1970s. As usual with his more recent offerings, he offers insight into the tensions that go on behind the scenes of official Washington, but it is nothing of a smoking gun kind of story that he was once famous for. Still, this provides some information into how Barack Obama and John Boehner tried to enter into an uneasy alliance to stop the Tea Party which hoped to force the US into debt default in 2011. Not "All the President's Men" by any means.
