    No story has been more central to America's history in this century than the rise of Barack Obama, and, until now, no journalist or historian has written a book that fully investigates the circumstances and experiences of Obama's life or explores the ambition behind his rise. Now, from a writer whose gift for illuminating the historical significance of unfolding events is without peer, we have a portrait of a young man in search of himself and of a rising politician determined to become the first African-American president.

    Overall

    If you like biographies and if you like Obama, you will like this book. The author provides a lot of context as he walks us through the life and meteoric rise of this man. However, it does not include, as I had hoped, a serious analysis of Obama's political philosophy.
