Obama is also candid about racism, poverty and corruption in Chicago, and he pulls no punches in his account of this period. Because the book stops in 1995, it does not get into much detail on his learning experiences, culminating in both missteps and triumphs, as a state legislator. For all the value the book provides on Obama's history, I would have appreciated a more substantive update than the preface on the last decade, as he gained political prominence in Illinois, so that we understand more why his time in the spotlight has come at this moment. Perhaps that will be Volume 2.Read more ›
I really enjoyed reading about Obama's family and childhood--in Hawaii, in Indonesia, and his visit to Kenya. I enjoyed reading about the racial identity struggles he went through in his teens and twenties. I feel this book really enabled me to know his thoughts and feelings and how he became the person he is today, as well as how he became the president he is today.
Without a doubt, this is one of the best autobiographies I have ever read, and I would highly recommend it to everyone
