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".

I am glad I voted for Obama

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 06-06-09

After listening to Obama narrate his book I now understand how he has reached the place where he is...what a pleasure it was to hear him speak about so many different subjects with his unique, holistic approach. I can relate to his mother's philosophy of life and have a deeper appreciation of his sincere intention for being a global citizen. His Mother and Grandmother, I am sure, are proudly watching him from afar. Here Here to them, and to him for his courage to follow his heart and honor the women in his life. Keep it up President Barack Obama, and make all of the Mothers of the World proud of you. Thank you, Deborah in Woodstock, NY
