Review

"Powerful... A striking, at times even hilarious book, but by the end it leaves the reader with a profound sense of loss... Shade drives home Obama's humanity and dignity and Trump's petty mind and epic failings like few other documents."―Rolling Stone

"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

"Pete Souza became an Instagram celebrity by documenting the White House. Then he became an even bigger one by criticizing it."
New York Times

"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

"Playful yet biting... commentary on Trump's current antics... to remind us what a president can be."
