Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama's Plan to Renew America's Promise Main Edition, Kindle Edition
About the Author
Barack Obama was born in Honolulu in 1961. In his early twenties he found his vocation working among poor communities on the south side of Chicago. Later he went to law school at Harvard University, where he became the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. In 1995 he published his memoir Dreams from My Father, which became a bestseller soon after it was reissued in 2004. After returning to Chicago, he was elected to the Illinois State Senate in 1996.
Barack Obama delivered the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, and later that year he was elected to the US Senate. His second book, The Audacity of Hope, was published in 2006 and became an immediate bestseller. In November 2008 Senator Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States of America. He was re-elected in 2012 and served a second term which concluded in 2016. He is married to Michelle, with whom he has two daughters, Sasha and Malia.
The best kind of storyteller ― * Observer *
Like Bill Clinton, he has the knack of weaving together the personal and the anecdotal with the political and the conceptual, so that each point seems both persuasive and commonsensical ― * Guardian *
"Yes we can" is the best political statement of the century so far ― * The Times *
Speaking in public seems to be both a personal need and a political creed for Obama. He is not just a fine orator: he is consciously putting oratory at the centre of his political being - and in doing so seeks to embed himself in a vital American tradition ― * Financial Times *
The speeches are crafted for Obama as a great orator; on the page they still sing with sincerity ― * The Times *
An impassioned speaker whose eloquence ranks with that of Abraham Lincoln ― * New York Times *
The most exciting politician of the day ― * Independent * --This text refers to the paperback edition.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was somehow under and impression that it was written by Barack Obama, but it's not (I can't find authors name on the book so I am assuming his campaign team put it together)
ONLY good point is that there are few of his speeches in the end. (I always thought Barack Obama was one of the best orator of our time, perhaps second to only Mohammad Ali/Cassius Clay). Those speeches are good to read, understand firsthand what he spoke and meant. Rest of the the book can be avoided.
