This book was written several years ago now, when President Obama was in the beginning stages of his national coming of age as a politician. The book delineated some of the basic principles found in concepts of leadership, and outlined his philosophy of teambuilding and the development of culture for a functioning team environment. Not having been in the White House, I can make no judgment as to whether any of these concepts have worked or not. I wish the book would have addressed more about his ability in the area of his policy and foreign relations skills, as those are two of his strongest leadership areas, yet were not addressed. He skillfully uses his legal background to analyze and foresee policy issues, and is able to predict the consequences of policy changes and the effects the changes will have on all parties. This is a skill that few leaders have or have had in the White House. His adeptness at foreign relations are also a strong leadership trait that could have been highlighted in the book, but were not. These leadership skills, too, have benefitted the US and not been discussed.

The overall concept of this book was a good one as it described President Obama's leadership style and how he has used it to succeed. The book was an easy ready, but you can tell it was put together in a hurry as it is very sloppy and repetitive. At many points in the book, I thought I misplaced my bookmark because I felt like I was rereading paragraphs. It turns out the author says the exact same thing throughout the book. It probably could have been consolidated into about 50 pages. I was very disappointed.
