Book Description

Steve Sailer gives us the real Barack Obama, who turns out to be very, very different - and much more interesting - than the bland healer/uniter image stitched together out of whole cloth this past six years by Obama's packager, David Axelrod. Making heavy use of Obama's own writings, which he admires for their literary artistry, Sailer gives the deepest insights I have yet seen into Obama's lifelong obsession with 'race and inheritance,' and rounds off his brilliant character portrait with speculations on how Obama's personality might play out in the Presidency." - John Derbyshire Author, Prime Obsession: Bernhard Riemann and the Greatest Unsolved Problem in Mathematics

3.0 out of 5 stars POTUS in the wrong place June 29, 2013
By Lazlo
Format:Kindle Edition
"America's Half-Blood Prince" is book about what modern politics are made of, lots of racial pandering and myopic handouts, not what politics should be, what politics were, or what politics could be in a utopia. Sailer's astute study reads into the workings of Barack Obama's confessional autobiography and debunks as to what really happened and deciphers the significance of each microaggression perceived by the hypersensitive sensual Marxist President.

Some conclusions: Modern politics are PR. Modern PR is casual and based on breakthroughs in technology. If Clinton's MTV and especially Night Show appearances set new rules for presidents needing a sort of hipness factor, Obama is the quantum version of that. Twitter, Facebook, micro-blogging, pinning it and foursquaring every minor Obama sighting to the nth degree.

As Obama's candid inventory unravels and Sailer audits his true and feigned introspective ciriculum vitae upon the world, I became acutely aware of how white liberals fell for a dime-a-dozen charlatan who wouldn't have been a good reformer even in the 1970s. Run-on sentences are my bag, baby.

If you would like to understand post-racial racism as it is understood in the Academia-Media-Administrative State complex today ; furthermore if you would like to understand the illusion of balanced insight and timely decision-making then this is the book for you. Sailer understands how Obama is able to get the underclass wedge voters into the camp, using racial quotas and racial justice like a 540 degree triptych uses the light.

It's an awesome tome. It only gets a demotion in stars because the hyperlinks page (before the index) is incomplete. Oh, and you can't really understand the title without some Harry Potter knowledge, because the last of those book/movies dropped the year this book did. But yeah, it's a goodie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the read May 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Thoughtful look at a politician who has succeeded in hiding in plain sight. Sailer looks where others haven't and tells us what is there to see. This book is four years old, but the insight remains fresh and useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on Obama January 17, 2013
By Ken
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sailer gives an honest, cogent peek into the real, strange cipher that is Barak Obama. A very even-handed account. One of the few books on Barry Obama that doesn't have him born in manger, the 3 wise...etc. Nor a neo-con, super-patriot, Barry's a commie dreck-job either. He peels away both the piety and vitriol to give us a peek into a conflicted, man full of.....what? That's what Sailer gets to. You'll have to read it yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Supplement to an Autobiography January 5, 2013
By Steki
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For a man who is so widely revered, Obama's real thoughts and experiences still seem largely undefined and unexamined. Leave it to Steve Sailer, a man trained in quantitative analysis to get the job done. The author compares Obama's words with those of people from his past and-gasp-the facts.

One of the many things I liked about this book was that it did not set to attack or demystify Obama (Praise be unto His Name), but rather shed more light on a man who is quite interesting on a few levels and, for better or worse, a man of our times.

My last comment is I hope Mr. Sailer will write some more books. Please!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mendacity of Hype June 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
With less than 5 months left before the 2012 election, I find it both surprising and somewhat sad to see that I am the first to review Steve Sailer's provocative and insightful book with the odd title of America's Half-Blood Prince Barack Obama's " Story of Race and Inheritance. " Maybe the title is too odd, cumbersome, even insensitive? Be that as it may, this is an excellent look at the real Barack Obama as seen through what may be his own words, or what purport to be his own words. Nowadays, the bloom is off the rose and others now dare write critically of Obama, but go to the original source of intelligent analysis for fascinating glimpses into this very shrewd operator.
