On most days, I enter the Capitol through the basement. (from the first line)
Senator Obama has written a book of transforming power. Only by returning to the principles that gave birth to the Constitution, he says, can Americans repair a political process that is broken, and restore to working order a government that has fallen dangerously out of touch with millions of ordinary Americans.
From the Publisher:
The junior U.S. senator from Illinois speaks out to all Americans on how to transform U.S. politics, calling for a return to America's original ideals and revealing how they can be adapted to such controversial issues as globalization, the function of religion in public life, and the struggle to bring people together in a nation torn by differences. Reprint. 400,000 first printing.The junior senator from Illinois discusses how to transform U.S. politics, calling for a return to America's original ideals and revealing how they can address such issues as globalization and the function of religion in public life.
Annotation:
Barack Obama's THE AUDACITY OF HOPE was a 2008 Grammy Award winner in the Best Spoken Word Album category.

Praise

"While exhibiting his leadership attributes, life experiences and personal qualities largely in anecdotal form, this book also displays reasonably wide and thoughtful, if occasionally predictable, responses to domestic controversies and underscores that in his brief time as the junior senator from Illinois, he has been exposed to conflicts in the Middle East, the former Soviet Union and elsewhere." - Gary Hart 12/24/2006

"True to his roots as a former lecturer in Constitutional law at the University of Chicago, Obama's writing is academic and intellectual enough to further discourse on some of the most complicated policy issues of the day without becoming too didactic and dispassionate. Yet his observations from the halls of Congress to the cornfields of Illinois are full of enough Kennedyesque idealism and enthusiasm that he never loses the common touch." - Sabrina L. Miller November/December 2006
