    In July 2004, Barack Obama electrified the Democratic National Convention with an address that spoke to Americans across the political spectrum. Now, in The Audacity of Hope, Senator Obama calls for a different brand of politics: a politics for those weary of bitter partisanship and alienated by the "endless clash of armies" we see in Congress and on the campaign trail; a politics rooted in the faith, inclusiveness, and nobility of spirit at the heart of "our improbable experiment in democracy".

    Ronald says: "Barack Obama is an inspirng speaker"
    "Engaging and Thoughtful"
    Overall

    Not unlike his first book the author uses wit and humor woven skillfully with autobiography to engage the reader in challenges to think and to present his view of the world. A true success in a world where everything is often reduced to mass media 30 second sound bites. I can hardly wait for the next book but suppose he is a bit busy with other things right now.

    Story

    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.

    Marcelaine says: "I laughed and cried, what a great listen!"
    "An Amazing Storyteller"
    Overall

    An insightful and respectful review of the roots of a man who would continue to inspire millions to become the best they can be, read with the emotion, voices and intonation that only the author could muster. Engaging and totaly entertaining.
