Our #21 Top Seller

The Audacity of Hope is Barack Obama's call for a new kind of politics--a politics that builds upon those shared understandings that pull us together as Americans. Lucid in his vision of America's place in the world, refreshingly candid about his family life and his time in the Senate, Obama here sets out his political convictions and inspires us to trust in the dogged optimism that has long defined us and that is our best hope going forward.

When on vacation, I can generally read a book a day but this one took parts of three days. Although I do keep up on key political events, I do not consider myself to be heavily into politics. As a result this book was a little heavy for me in some places. I bought it to have a better understanding of our president and found it to be very helpful in that regard. I kept reading even though I had to wade through some parts because I found many other parts to be very insightful and inspirational. The book left me with a high level of hope and respect for the man. But at the same time created considerable doubt that he or anyone can have a significant impact when working in the quagmire that Washington has become. That part leaves me frightened for the future of our country.

I purchased this book after the presidential election and am very much enjoying it. Barack Obama tells of his vision for America and why he has hope in the American dream. It not only showcases his vision for the future but also gives a glimpse into the man. I love the little stores about his family as well as his early days of public service. Definitely worth a read.

President Barak Obama who was the Senator Barak Obama is a very intelligent man who is in touch with people of all backgrounds and cultures. I like the way that he not only tries to defend his beliefs or put them on others. He always tries to look at both sides to every issue and walk a mile in the other person's shoes to know how they feel and how it really affects them. He has an open mind to make changes and try to improve the American way because we are the United States means different cultures and backgrounds are coming together to meet at one common ground to make this world a better place to live for everyone.

This book is great for an intimate view into the new Presidents' history and background. I love the details. Our new 44th Preseident is a very, intelligent, articulate individual and he displays every word of it in this book. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is an avid reader.
