Product description

Review

"An American classic, written with grace and precision" (Observer)

"Thoughtful, moving and brilliantly written" (The Times)

"A man with a phenomenal life story" (Spectator)

"Extraordinary . . . It's unique. It's his. There are no other ones like that" (TONI MORRISON)

"A bestseller because of its freshness and honesty" (CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS Sunday Times)

"A well-written account of Obama's struggle to establish his own views on identity and race, and all the more entertaining for its honesty" (Financial Times 2007-11-03)

"The only politician's life I have read that made me cry . . . elegant and surprising prose as well as a solid personal statement" (IAN KELLY The Times 2008-07-03)

"[Obama] writes with candour about racism, bigotry and hardship, but always there is a sense of wisdom - you feel you are in the presence of a very mature man . . . You will not fail to be moved by Obama's warmth and humility" (Good Book Guide 2008-05-01)

"With its honesty and cool language, and by virtue of having a story worth telling, the book impresses far more than the typical political memoir" (COLIN WATERS Sunday Herald 2008-06-01)

"Obama has written a memoir . . . that evokes the anguish of miscegenation yet culminates in a cry of faith in human community . . . Obama is a born narrator, with a mastery of colour, scene and personality, deftly stirring them into the melting pot of a shared American identity. Rarely has that identity found so vivid a portraitist" (SIMON JENKINS Sunday Times 2008-06-15) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Obama's writing is characterised throughout by a graceful eloquence...here is a testimony for the ages. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
