Product description

Review

You can sense instinctively why Obama invites devotion -- Peter Preston * * Observer * * At a time when America's standing in the world has sunk to unprecedented depths . . . his book aims at a missile of decency at the White House -- Nicolas Shakespeare * * Telegraph * * Offers readers on this side of the Atlantic a window not just into the mind of one of America's most exciting politicians, but into the political landscope of the post-Bush era -- David Lammy * * Guardian * * It conveys a rare frankness and humility. The Audacity of Hope is light years ahead of his rivals -- Mary Fitzgerald * * New Statesman * * A model of how a political book for a mass market ought to be written * * Guardian * * An essential book for anyone who would like to know about what the man, who could well be the next president of the United States, in thinking. -- Alice Oswald * * Insight * *

About the Author

Barack Obama was born in Honolulu in 1961. In his early twenties he found his vocation working among poor communities on the south side of Chicago. Later he went to law school at Harvard University, where he became the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. In 1995 he published his memoir Dreams from My Father, which became a bestseller soon after it was reissued in 2004. After returning to Chicago, he was elected to the Illinois State Senate in 1996. Barack Obama delivered the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, and later that year he was elected to the US Senate. His second book, The Audacity of Hope, was published in 2006 and became an immediate bestseller. In November 2008 Senator Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States of America. He was re-elected in 2012 and served a second term which concluded in 2016. He is married to Michelle, with whom he has two daughters,
