Pres. Obama is a gifted communicator and a natural writer, and it shows in this book which is appropriately titled the audacity of hope. Although the reality may be different, he paints a very inspiring portrait of his own life, which might lead one to regard him as a great leader. Despite one's political inclinations, as a book, I feel that it is a good read. Read More

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."
"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."
