Format: Paperback
I have grown very weary of Mr. Obama in the last few months and after supporting him early on, the more I learn the more scared I become. This book takes a close look at why this candidate is so popular and then exposes his real record on many issues. As a recent Harvard MBA graduate and registered democrat who has spent 12 years in high level corporate positions, I believe an Obama controlled US will suffer greatly in the world economy. I only hope more people seek a true understanding of the candidate they support.

As a 23 year old, I think it's important for young Americans to take a closer look at all of the candidates and have access to as much information as possible. In a time when the mainstream media is desperately trying to sell papers and increase TV ratings- their bottom line is profits, not substance. This book discusses Senator Obama's policies, not his good-looks, motivational speaking style or his race. This book is a refreshing look at substance and any serious voter who wants to put America back on track should read it and make up their own mind.

13 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Adam C. Nicholson on August 19, 2008
Format: Paperback
These rising young political observers have done a great service for their peers and the future of their nation. They have articulately taken apart the Obama message, showing how the only hope he offers is for more of the same, old, high-tax, big-government policies that reduce human freedom and prosperity.

Their age and wit allow them to communicate with the younger generation in a way that few others can, while their professionalism and scholarly detachment (look at the citation page) gives them impeccable credibility. This book should be mandatory reading for all concerned citizens - but especially young Americans - who want to know how an Obama Presidency will affect their future.

Keep up the good work guys!

Format: Paperback
This book is a must read for all, especially Democrats and Independents. As a former Gore and Kerry supporter, I was skeptical at first, but this book was an eye opener. This book looks at Obama's record as a US Senator and attempts to do the same with his record as a state senator.

It also looks at the mentors who shaped Obama's philosophy during the early stages of his adult life and political career. The authors do a good job at separating Obama's philosophy from his speeches. They also do a good job at examining the liberation theology espoused by Obama's former pastor Rev Wright. This examination refrains from discussing the controversial comments replayed during the last several months. Rather, it looks at the core philosophy of this type of theology and the implications it may have on an Obama presidency.

Overall, this book does a good job of showing that Obama's centrist type speeches do not always ring true and it shows how he has some of the most far left views on taxes, government programs, education, abortion, and foreign policy. The only reason I refrain from giving it five stars is that the authors were not able to examine several of the records during Obama's years as a state senator. However, they claim they were not able to do this because these records have been unavailable for public review.
