About the Author
"These juxtapositions of permanence and transience are ultimately what make Shade a compelling read; powerful, memorable portraits of an eight-year presidency stand beside headlines and tweets that surface on Twitter feeds for a few days at most and then are brushed aside amid new ones. The book is not just a tale of two presidents, but a tale of two political and media landscapes."―NPR
"As President Obama's photographer, Pete Souza was one of the very finest official White House snappers. In his provocative Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents, he contrasts pictures of the 44th incumbent with vignettes from the administration of the 45th to caustic effect."―Ben Schott, The Guardian
"A cool refuge from the heat of a very orange sun... [Shade] illustrate[s] the extent to which Obama's expansive ideals have been edged out by Trump's politics of meanness and resentment."―Shondaland
"In Shade... [Pete Souza] continues to juxtapose Mr. Obama and Mr. Trump via images, headlines, and tweets... he's not throwing shade, he insists--he's just telling the truth."―Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Those are very different from this one which is slyly witty in contrasting Trump's presidency and character (mainly through quotes, newspaper headlines and, of course, tweets) with Obama's. The left side has a Trump-related quote and the right has a photo Souza took of Obama in some kind of parallel moment, with Souza's own captioning often casting "shade" at the current occupant of the White House (or sometimes just letting the photo speak for itself). As if we might miss the point about choosing good v. bad leadership, the final page -- perfectly timed -- reminds about the importance of voting.
Note: this is a nice 7 x 9" hardback with glossy photo paper. Only one photo of Trump (not in person but on television--starting with the shade). I think the book is better off this way.
My only complaint is that the words on one of the pages is cut off so I couldn’t read it.

I bought this as a gift, but hesitated to give it in the end, as it’s a little disappointing. Would be better if the author/photographer had sought rights to comparative photographs, as it might be more impactful.
The photographs themselves are good, and the content would perhaps be eye opening to some, but if you are considering buying this book, chances are that there's nothing here that you don’t already know!
Buy a Trump toilet brush instead.
