Publisher's Summary

Obama's presidency has suffered the fiercest opposition any administration has had and yet Mr. Obama has managed to lead the country to financial recovery, end the senseless war in Iraq, implement universal healthcare, put an end to Iran's nuclear ambitions and re-open diplomatic relations with Cuba all the while remaking US standing in the world. But Republicans believe he is the worst president the country has had. This book outlines the major successes and failures of his presidency

The Obama presidency has been marked by a number of events which might make it difficult for people outside the United States and his opponents in the country to understand the impact his administration has had in the country and across the globe.

To address this problem, this book provides a glimpse at what Obama has accomplished or failed to accomplish during his two-term presidency. The book does not however claim to provide a complete history of Obama's presidency; it does not claim to even provide a full listof the topics which are discussed herein.

This book is simply an attempt to present a snippet of his accomplishments in the face of relentless misinformation and fake news. So, without fluff or partisanship, the book looks into Obama presidency through the lenses of history.

This book claims to be unbiased, as such of course it’s biased.

This book presents itself as unbiased and neutral, however it is anything but. I do not have the inclination to list every wrong point in this book and correct it. Suffice to say if you want to hear a whitewashing of Obama’s presidency and come away thinking he tried oh so hard and everyone was against him and he still did a wonderful job and everything was Bush’s or the republicans fault, then give this a listen. You’ll feel safe and snuggly in your echo chamber.

Good balance of pros and cons

The Obama Legacy
By: Mike Ducheine
Narrated by: Kevin Theis
This is a book I received free from Autoboom and the review is voluntary. This book lays out Obama's term and gives the pros and cons of his actions. It addresses economic issues, national issues, healthcare, job market, and more. I think it's pretty fair. I would give him higher scores on some things but I am pro Obama all the way.
Narration was good!
Oh, can't wait to have a president with a brain again!
