For decades we have had presidents who are all about making false promises. Some promises are better, than others, yet we still believed, still waited and still hoped. Obama has lifted America up by the boot straps and evoked the kind of change that we needed and craved. No longer can we continue to wait for false promises and he realizes this in the book. This is a great read to help the future generation know the mistakes of past presidents and the aids that left America in shambles and in dedt to foreign countries such as China. I want my children to know the truth about this wonderful president and how he did everything he can humanly do to make America better and stronger for future generations, as well as present day ones. There are factual and contextual data found throughout the book that support his values, ideas and theories.

This President is the most authentic of people. His intelligence sets him apart, but his integrity and incredible authenticity make him uniquely "up to the job". The book does not spare his failings; not the least of which is his trust in the "experts". Listening to his soul, gets him/us out of many dangers; listening to the "experts" has proven very risky business. He could not have imagined the unconscionable depths of deceit to the country that partisanship has wrought. I believe his audacity of hope, is in the American people. We are out here, Mr. President. We are blessed to have such a uniquely, broadly qualified man (and first lady) leading our country and the world. We walk the road with you.

Johnathan Alter vividly paints a picture of a president finding his footing in his new position, and the abundance of resistance he faces.
