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.

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.

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! HOPE OF A NATION, HOPE OF A PEOPLE!!

Being born poor, black and fatherless, I was not considered a human being. Not by my country, not even by family. I can count on one hand how many gave me a chance. What i thought was neglect by my mother was a inner vision of my mother that i would make it. No way could I imagine that in my lifetime I would witness the amazing occurrence of a black man becoming PRESIDENT of the country that explored a whole race of people for more then 400 years. BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA was elected because he was qualified for the job. He just happened to be BLACK! In so many areas we are worst off then before he became president. But the bell has sounded! We don't walk around with our heads hung down. They can no longer label us! We are measured by the content of our character! Mr. PRESIDENT Obama, you set a standard that even the color of your skin is not a free pass from beginning to the end. You have to prove yourself. This why so many want to roll back time because they are getting rolled over! He taught me how to LOVE MYSELF! Be the best me I can be. Give honor and grace to all those who gave their lives so I can live FREE! Yes, its gotten harder but the truth is no longer dictated by the "Haves" over the "Have nots"! Thanks to the true Americans who really believe regardless of their wealth or their race! Finding a solution is harder but the rewards are greater!

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.

That's a great contents

I think it is great content.
But if Audible provide the script of it, it could be better.
If I could find the script from any other source, please let me know it.
