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.
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!
