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.
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!
