This is an insightful lyrikkal look into the beginnings of rock beginnings. An analysis of his childhood in an attempt to understand what frame to is today. As usual his voice is melodious easy to listen to. You don't have to be a liberal in order to enjoy this. I think it is an interesting look at an interesting man.
The story behind the great man with the Audacity to Hope for a united States of America not a culturally divided one.. This book and that speech may change the way to see the world and your life as a part of it.
Absolutely loved the story and have a better understanding of the man behind the book.
I really enjoyed hearing about mr obamas struggles and his rise from being a boy to his political adventures. It was just as entertaining as it was educational about the background and history of his past.
There are too many very good books to read to read this very good book over again. If someone wanted to read it alongside me, I may. This did whet my appetite for the actual book. I was very disappointed this was abridged and it seems there is no unabridged version available.
There was a part when he was a community organizer and he learned that certainty in politics and religion was power. He definitely was speaking towards the disappointment that those two go hand in hand. He was obviously acknowledging certainty is so hard, if not impossible, to achieve. Thankful that the most powerful man in the world acknowledged that at least at one point in his life.
I always love it when the author is the reader, Obama is no exception. He would be an excellent reader of other people's books, so having him narrate his own story is incredible.
Obama's life before he dreamed of presidency.
Obama! Read the whole book!
