This is one of the best books I have ever read. Don't trust the leftists trying to skew the rating system here, Stanley Kurtz's meticulously cited work does a lot more justice to the journalist profession than all of the leftist hacks on BSNBC combined. Spite your lefty friends and buy this EXCELLENT book right now.

This book reveals the true progressive agenda that Soros and his cronies have attempted to hide for the past decade. The progressive/socialist movement has truly been pushing its way into our culture for several decades. It just took a candidate like Obama, charismatic, professing change that we all hungered for, etc., to help usher it in. You must read this to see our leader and his true motives.

Fascinating interview. Can't wait to read this book!

Kurtz makes a compelling case that Obama's presidency can only be understood in light of his deep and formative relationships with socialist leaders in America. He explains how the tactics of socialists adapted to the political realities of the Reagan era, when Obama made his decision to become a community organizer. The research is extensive and the tone is thoughtful.

I started with the best intentions to read this book from cover to cover (as I always do when starting a good book), but it is a LONG, DETAILED read. I only got about 50% or so through the book, and I can say that Mr. Kurtz had sold me on his premise. A thorough (if not overly thorough, if this would be possible) exploration of President Obama's upbringing, from his early days of college, his formation of a worldview brought on by interactions with fellow students and a variety of "conferences," through to his community organizing days and on into his political career. Mr. Kurtz unearths enough information, when considered with the actions we've witnessed over the past two years of the President's term in office, that one cannot avoid the influences of Marx, Alinsky, Reverend Wright, the Socialist Scholars Conferences, ACORN and other others on Mr. Obama's approach to policy and governing? Whether you believe the President is a socialist (one need not turn 100% of private industry into government-controlled interests to be a socialist), just MAYBE our current President has a few ties to key players and principles that come from such a political theory. Considering his policies and actions (ObamaCare, czar creation, spending, regulation, etc.), we should take him at his word when he says he wants to "fundamentally transform" our country. He's taken big enough steps that it may be really difficult to back away from the Leviathan of regulation and control he's created. Kurtz's writing does nothing more than show us how we arrived at this point in time.

Barack Obama has failed to fill in too many blanks regarding his background. This book gives the reader the complete background material for Obamas' political life. Those on the left should read this. Maybe it will open their eyes to the realities facing this country today.
