'What Jefferson Read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted' is called "the definitive book on presidential
consumption of literature and pop culture"

http://thefederalist.com/2015/05/05/media-say-obama-is-a-bookworm-are-they-sure/
The media told us George W. Bush isn't an intellectual and Obama is. When it comes to their reading, at least, the media narrative is just plain wrong.

Woodrow Wilson, when asked about a memoir, replied: "There ain't going to be none."  See my piece from this upcoming Sunday’s Washington Post Outlook on presidents and their memoirs:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/obamas-next-memoir-will-make-money--but-it-wont-change-minds/2014/02/21/b247ab4a-94cd-11e3-84e1-27626c5ef5fb_story.html
What could Obama achieve with a post-White House memoir?

Big news. "What Jefferson Read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted: 200 Years of Popular Culture in the White House" is #7 on the Washington Post best-seller list this week.

Scott Gottlieb and I have a piece in today's Wall Street Journal on how Republicans should prepare for King v. Burwell: http://www.wsj.com/articles/scott-gottlieb-and-tevi-troy-how-not-to-bungle-an-obamacare-opening-1423179495
In The Wall Street Journal, Scott Gottlieb and Tevi Troy write that congressional Republicans must be ready with a plausible plan if the King v. Burwell ruling goes their way.

I liked the last line of Noemie Emery's column on Presidents and pop culture in the Washington Examiner: “Troy's "What Jefferson read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted" has something to say to us all.”

"What Jefferson Read" was mentioned in the New York Times today, in Peter Baker's piece on Obama's reading:

 http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/05/us/politics/in-obamas-book-list-glimpses-of-his-journey.html?_r=0
Unlike many of his predecessors, the president's tastes lean toward the literary, in keeping with a man whose first memoir deeply explored issues of race and self.

Check out The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin’s Q&A with me on “What Jefferson Read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted.”  Rubin:  “It’s a must-read for junkies and campaign operatives.”
