    When acclaimed Washington Post writer Wil Haygood had an early hunch that Obama would win the 2008 election, he thought he'd highlight the singular moment by exploring the life of someone who had come of age when segregation was so embedded in the culture as to make the very thought of a black president inconceivable. He struck gold when he tracked down Eugene Allen, a butler who had served eight presidents, from Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan. Forest Whitaker narrates the story of this remarkable man who, while serving tea and supervising buffets, was also a witness to history.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I kept looking when I downloaded this thinking it must just be a sample. I had already seen the movie, and wanted to get more information on Eugene Allen's life....not less information. Like someone said, this was basically a summary of the movie and a marketing ploy.

    In order to make this a 4 or 5-star experience....an actual book!
