Martin Levin looks at the new guys bookshelf.

"Remember the ado when Obama was photographed with Fareed Zakaria's The Post-American World, a book about the decline of the U.S. as world power? The cynical might say: self-promoting photo-op. But I think it's a book he really read and considered.
And when The New York Times asked him for a list of writers and books that were important to him, Obama offered a rainbow coalition of titles black and white, American and foreign:"

Post-American World is a fine primer from a clear-eyed foreign policy wonk, and if Barack Obama has read his Graham Greene, as Levin suggests; then that's a huge plus.
Great Presidency so far.
