Dreams from my father by Barack Obama

On January 20 2009, Barack Obama took the oath of office to become the 44th President of the United States, the first African-American to do so. Obama wrote Dreams from my father in 1995, well before he became a US senator and before his run for the White House was thought of. Instead of the agenda ridden political memoir publishers often commission, this book is a very personal account of Obama's struggle to find a place between two cultures. It is beautifully written, frank and hopeful. A real opportunity to learn about the man occupying the Oval Office. Highly recommended.

I give this 4/5 GREAT!!

Borrow Dreams from my father from the library.
