"In a new book, 'We Are the Change We Seek: The Speeches of Barack Obama,' we have been given the first partial, though still substantive, look at Obama’s words, and it is a political partisan's dream to see them so finely gathered here." - Washington Post

Also, as an aside, it's interesting to look at some of President Obama's remarks either before or during the early stages of his presidency, and to look at what the administration was and wasn't able to accomplish, and also to see the ways in which his rhetoric changed throughout the 14 or so years that the speeches in this book span. For example, a lot of the foreign policy issues discussed early in President/Senator Obama's time on the national political stage translate pretty clearly into the actions him and his administration took later on (Iran Nuclear Deal, normalization of relations with Cuba, UN resolution regarding Israeli settlements in Jerusalem, etc.). And you could do this with economics or really any of the other issues covered. That this book allows us to do so is where the value is.
