The book also details the long-strained relationship between Obama and former president Bill Clinton.

The New York Times obtained a copy of the book and summarizes it:

"When the two of them golfed together in September 2011, an effort aides hoped would bring them closer, they did not even finish 18 holes. Mr. Obama succinctly expressed his view of Mr. Clinton to an aide after coming off the course at Andrews Air Force Base. “Obama grimaced and replied, ‘I like him ... in doses,’ ” the authors write."
