In a presidential election year dominated by countercharges and turf wars, David Maraniss' biography of the young Barack Obama pleases by contrast. To research this ambitious, 672-page book, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author (First in His Class; Rome 1960) interviewed scores of Obama's family, friends, and numerous associates from his early life. (The book ends with the future president entering Harvard Law School.) The resulting portraits reveals less about Obama's stands on individual issues than about his personality and his core approach to problem-solving. A major release; certain to be widely reviewed and discussed.
