I am a daily commuter. I drive to work Monday - Thursday from the Central Valley to the Silicon Valley in Northern California. My round trip is about 120 miles and I am in the car from 3 - 5 hours per day, depending on the traffic. That is a lot of time to listen to books.

    Story
    (424)

    In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father, a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man, has been killed in a car accident.

    Kathryn says: "A wonderful, insightful, non-political story"
    "Enlightening"
    Overall

    I was not one of the first to jump on the Obama wagon, automatically prejudiced by his name and unsure about his religious beliefs (not that I am religious myself), but when it was between him and McCain I started to listen and notice and believe that he would be a great leader and someone who could change the course of history. I downloaded this book around election time to see if there was anything in here to change my mind. The book itself was mediocre - the man is not. I appreciated learning his true background in a book written many years before his presidential campaign, which is quite different from what the McCain/Palin thumpers and those who fear change are trying to sell. It was honest and showed me that this is a real person who has achieved so much in his 40+ years and will go one to achieve so much more. I recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about our current President Elect. What a special time we are living.
