Description
"Barack Obama is that rare politician who can actually writeand write movingly and genuinely about himself." The New York Times "Obama writes convincingly about race as well as the lofty place the Constitution holds in American life.... He writes tenderly about family and knowingly about faith." Los Angeles Times "An upbeat view of the country's potential and a political biography that concentrates on the senator's core values." Chicago Tribune "He is one of the best writers to enter modern politics." Jonathan Alter, Newsweek.com "What's impressive about Obama is an intelligence that his new books diplays in aubundance." Washington Post Book World "The self-portrait is appealing. It presents a man of relative youth yet maturity, a wise observer of the human condition, a figure who possesses perseverance and writing skills that have flashes of grandeur. Obama also demonstrates a wry sense of humor...His particular upbringing gives him special insights into the transition of American politics in the 1960s and '70s from debates over economic principles to a focus on culture and morality, and into the divisiveness, polarization and incivility that accompanied this transition." Gary Hart,The New York Times Book Review "America's founders set a high standard for political writing, and most contemporary efforts fall woefully short. How nice, then, to have a politician who can write as well as U.S. Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois. ...The Audacity of Hope... is fascinating in its revelation of Obama as someone who considers and questions, rather than asserts and declares. In nine focused chapters, Obama shows himself an agile thinker. This is an idea book, not a public-policy primer." Elizabeth Taylor,Philadelphia Daily News "Not only is Obama a good writer, his mind is top-shelf, his heart tender." Les Payne,Newsday "A thoughtful, careful analysis of what needs to be done to preserve our freedoms in a time of terror." Newton N. Minow,Chicago Tribune
