Excellent - I highly recommend this to EVERYONE

I did not understand why Obama acts like he doesn't like America, makes promises to those in need then turns his back on them This book explains why he has done so many things that baffles many of us and why he continues to forge forward with very unpopular agendas. ...

I did not vote for Obama as I am from Illinois and know the corruption that comes out of Chicago. But this is beyond Chicago. Obama's behavior can be explained by his beliefs rooted by his past. This is not difficult to figure out.

Terrible

How can I put this... "YOU LIE"

ahhh there we go.

This book likes to note how obama is black every 4 sentences.
Its written very boringly and makes no sense.

But if your a republican who only listens to what you like to here go ahead and buy the horrible thing...

    Recommend if you want to have a more logical view of the President

    You can take or leave the author's views because he not only gives you his conclusions but his unemotional rationale for why he has come to a conclusion. He makes is particularly interesting because of the similarity of his growing up to the President's. Which is quite different from a typical continental born American. Very easy read. I did it in one setting because I could not put it down.

    Gives another view

    This was a very well written book that uses Obama's own words. I admit that I have not been impressed at all with our president's performance and have often been confused at choices he has made and things he has said. This made a lot of sense to me. Many of Obama's own words are used in this work which makes it a little hard to overlook.

    To those who blow it off as drivel and say that it is written for conservative, unintelligent people who will believe anything...I suggest you take a look in the mirror. While you may not agree with everything in the book, those who blow it off entirely simply cannot accept there might be another side to things and are afraid to see they might be wrong about something and thus show their own foolishness.

    Surprised me--actually a pretty good book!

    Assumptions/conclusions are well documented...easy to see how Obama comes to many of his ideological positions. Guess it's still true...show me your friends and I can tell who you are. Too bad not enough people paid attention in 2008.

    A must read

    This is an outstanding work. I was drawn in from the first page. If you are curious about our president and what motivates him, this book is for you.
