Comment: This book is in good or better condition. It has no tears to the pages and no pages will be missing from the book. The spine of the book is still in great condition and the front cover is generally unmarked. It has signs of previous use but overall is in really nice, tight condition. Shipping is normally same day from our UK warehouse. We offer a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied.

Barack Obama's success in becoming President-Elect of the United States means he can change the face that his country presents to the world. In this book he discusses the importance of empathy in politics, his hopes for a different America with different policies, and how the ideals of its democracy can be renewed.

 A Good Introduction to the President-in-Waiting

| | See all RedPanda's reviews (5)

I picked up a copy of this in the US a couple of months ago and was able to read it before the election took place. If you can forgive the Pseud's Corner-esque title it is certainly worth a read in order to familiarise yourself with the values and ideals of the president-in-waiting; Obama reveals himself to be profoundly inspired by the mechanisms, ideals and history of American Politics, firm in the conviction that the US must re-skill in order to meet the challenges of the internet era, and above all positive in his belief in the United States, it's people and it's power as a force for good in the world.

It is not however perfect. There are sections which feel as if they have been written rather self-consciously in order not to alienate sections of the voting public (a rather generic response to the hoary old issue of "pork-barrel" spending springs to mind as an example), but in the main there is a genuine sense of conviction and honesty and it is hard not to warm to the man behind the public image. A thoughtful, rather charming and thoroughly readable book.

 Very interesting

Read this whilst on holiday and have to say couldn't put it down.

Barack Obama talks about his life in politics, his struggles, his beliefs, his family and his aspirations and ambitions as a young man in politics.

He discusses the problems in America both with the politics and with the economy and to some extent about solutions to these problems.

I don't want to go into to much detail as I would rather leave it to the reader to experience but I will say it's fascinating book that makes a great read!
