Believer chronicles David Axelrod’s journey into American politics from his early days in Hyde Park as a University of Chicago student and reporter for the Hyde Park Herald to his successful career as a political strategist, culminating with his brilliant achievements in both of President Obama’s campaigns.
At the heart of this book is the deep and enduring friendship between the two. Believer is “…a well written and often moving account of how a committed liberal measures his principles against the bruising imperatives of high-stakes politics.” – The New York Times
After the 2012 presidential campaign, Axelrod founded the Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago where he currently serves as the Director.
