this book is very well written. Though, at times i had to reread the paragraphs to make sure I fully understood. Not the easiest read. I enjoyed the personal references that Obama used. Good to read if you have a strong interest in politics.

Well written and very logically laid out. I found it a good introduction to politics.
A rare book that kept me interested from beginning to end.
It sparks my desire to read his first book.

Read this book.
My 100 year-old mother voted Democratic for the first time in the 2008 presidential election; she checked with nursing home staff repeatedly on election night until told Barack Obama had won. She is enjoying this book so much I think she resents visitors who take her away from it!

This is a great book. It takes the reader on Obama's senatorial journey and helps in understanding his philosophy.
