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.

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.

I did not know who Obama was or about until I read this book. Obama does what's right. God's Laws.

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.
