    I bought this book (in addition to his two books) in order to get to know this presidential candidate a bit better. Although it does provide some insights, they are few and far between. The timing of the publication (mid 2007) leaves out some specific Obama policy positions which would have been nice to have for someone who's reading this. It's an understandable reality of publication, but nonetheless crippling in terms of usefulness.

It's an understandable reality of publication, but nonetheless crippling in terms of usefulness. Reading his speeches this week in light of his refusal of public funding was especially interesting since there is a quote in the book which states: "The whole issue of money in politics is one that I'm constantly struggling with, because my preference would be that we've got public financing of campaigns and nobody has to raise money whatsoever." --All Things Considered, October 19, 2006 Overall, its a well put together collection of quotes - I just wish there were more direct stances rather than circumventive oratory.

    "Barack Obama: in his own words. The candidate speaks on everything from abortion to the Middle East." This book has been on my to-be-read shelf for ages. A collection of his quotes from appearances, speeches, articles and his own website and writings. Would be interesting to read an update all these years later. And look how young on the cover photo!

    A little disappointed. There was nothing new about him or his career that eventually led to his presidency. These are quotes, soundbites I had already heard on the news. Meh

    On a warm summer day in early August 1961, Barack Obama Jr. was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. His parents had extremely different families; his mother was American and his dad was from Kenya. Barack faced many racial problems due to his skin color, and the fact that he was the result of a mixed marriage also brought racial attacks from the colored community. Although Obama faced racism and problems as a kid he was still able to attend two of the most well- known universities, Columbia and Harvard. On a warm summer day in early August 1961, Barack Obama Jr. was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. His parents had extremely different families; his mother was American and his dad was from Kenya. Barack faced many racial problems due to his skin color, and the fact that he was the result of a mixed marriage also brought racial attacks from the colored community. Although Obama faced racism and problems as a kid he was still able to attend two of the most well- known universities, Columbia and Harvard. Kerry, a presidential candidate at the time, pushed Obama to write and deliver the « key–note speech at the Democratic National Convention » in Boston. Obama accepted and delivered a speech called the « Audacity of Hope », which touched a large American audience. Barack used his power and his skills in politics and law to fight for peace in the Middle East and Iraq, which was a war he opposed from the beginning. The first lesson I learned from Obama’s story is to not give up no matter what, and even though sometimes our enemies may put us down we should always follow our dreams. Second, by being a hero in the eyes of the community you can influence people around you and make them better. The third lesson I learned from Obama and his experience is that education is a very important in order to succeed in life. In conclusion, Obama changed the lives of many people around the world. How do you know this book is a biography? Barack Obama by Sherri and Mark Devaney, is a biography about the life, decisions and events of Barack Hussein Obama. The book is classified as a biography because the information written by the two authors accurately describes the life of another person, Barack Obama. 2. What do you like about this person? Explain. I personally consider Obama as my idol; there are several things I like about him. The president is full of hope and truly cares about his people as well as his nation. His personality and the way he solves problems using his skills in politics and law instead of using military violence gives hope to all. Obama treats the people around him with respect no matter if their rich or poor. I look up to people that have a lot of problems but don’t let them influence their surroundings. Obama inspires me by the way he solves problem peacefully without using violence. 3. If you could meet this person, what questions would you ask them? I will ask Obama a lot of questions mainly about his personal life: Do you still feel the pain you experience in your child hood? Are you still facing problems because of your skin color? Do you have time for your family? Who was your idol when you were young? Would you want to go live in Kenya for a day? Is it alright if we call you Hussein? Recommendations: I highly recommend this book to all C.A.S students. If you want to be a lawyer or politician this book will show tactics to be better at that job. This book will influence you and show you that you should show the world who you really are. It will make you realize that racism can change many people’s life. This, book will change the way you think about colored people and show you that they are human as well. It can also make you understand that many people are suffering more then you and you can be thankful to the people that surround you. « Your voice can change the world ». Finally, this book will motivate you and maybe change your life.

    Since delivering his key note speech to the 2004 Democratic National Convention he have taken the world by a storm. This book give you a inside look at a great man and what he stand for. But I did not need a book, I was stationed in Rock Island Il in 2008, before he told the he was running for office. I watched as he talked to children about staying in school. You have to know the drop out rate in that area to understand why I why I was in tears that day. A friend later told me all about him and Since delivering his key note speech to the 2004 Democratic National Convention he have taken the world by a storm.

    Utile per farsi un'idea circa il pensiero del presidente relativamente ad alcuni temi come, per esempio, aborto, religione, politica estera... In poche parole si tratta di una raccolta di citazioni/pensieri di Obama.. È un libro da usare quasi come un vocabolario visto che i temi si susseguono in ordine alfabetico.. Magari sarebbe stato meglio organizzarli in macrogruppi piuttosto che in ordine alfabetico...giusto per rendere un minimo più organico il libro..

    This is a collection of quotes from the president. It was worth reading, but I really prefer the books Obama wrote himself.

    This was basically a book full of quotes. It wasn't bad, but I kind of wish I would have picked a different book that had more to it.
