In Conversation with John Dickerson

David Axelrod has always been a believer. Whether as a young journalist investigating city corruption, a campaign consultant guiding underdog candidates, or as senior adviser to the president, Axelrod held fast to his faith in the power of stories to unite diverse communities and ignite transformative political change. In Believer, the mastermind behind President Obama’s historic election campaigns shares a wealth of stories from his forty-year journey through the inner workings of American democracy.

Believer reveals the roots of Axelrod’s devotion to politics and his faith in democratic change in times of corruption and transformation, turmoil and progress. The heart of Believer is Axelrod’s twenty-year friendship with President Obama. Axelrod served as senior adviser to the president during one of the most challenging periods in national history: working at Obama’s side as he battled an economic disaster; navigated America through two wars; and fought to reform health care, the financial sector, and our gridlocked political institutions. In Believer, Axelrod offers a deeper and richer profile of the President Obama-who in just six years vaulted from the Illinois State Senate to the Oval Office-from the perspective of one who was at his side every step of the way.

In conversation with John Dickerson, Slate magazine’s Chief Political Correspondent and a political analyst for CBS News. Book signing to follow.
