Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Everybody's coming out with an Obama book. Some are well-researched, and some are nothing more than book-length attack ads, dripping with evil and loathing. "Our friend Barry" is different. It's just a nice collection of stories from Obama's old school friends, who knew him as "Barry Obama."

Punahou school was an elite school, but not all of the kids there were from elite families. Some of the kinds, including Barry Obama got financial aid. That's the kind of insider detail one finds in this book. I think the most valuable thing that comes out of the book is a better understanding of Hawaii, and its effect on the people that grow up there. Michelle Obama was once quoted as saying that in order to understand Barack Obama, you have to understand Hawaii. This is a book that will help you do that.
