Great speeches, no index

The audio quality is good, the speeches are great and separated one speech per chapter. But there are no titles of any of the chapters, no indication of when or where the speeches were given. The speeches do not seem to be in any sort of order, certainly not chronological. Still worth it if you want to hear the speeches, but a poor job of delivering information about the speeches themselves.

Ultimate Example of an U.S. President

Speeches that need to be listened too over and over again by any person that desires to enter into any political and/ or public service position.

Obama

Obama is the greatest orator of all time, plain and simple. He's one of the most inspiring people in American history. I trusted government during his presidency - we were in good hands.

Greatness Recorded!

Unless you hate Obama, you'll likely love hearing his stirring articulate appeal for a more compassionate country and accountability for our own lives and actions and vision of the world and possibility for all.

Yes We Can!!!

I totally agree with a previous review, the speeches were wonderful. ( of course, they were...it’s Barack Obama) But I feel like the author should have said at the beginning of each chapter which speech we were about to listen to, and also the date of the speech! You don’t just go from one speech to the next without an intro. It was sort of like a run on sentence. You didn’t know where one stopped, and the other started.
