I bought Barack Obama's second book, The Audacity of Hope, for Brendan a few months ago. He found it hard work and abandonned it after a few chapters. I picked it up around Christmas, and I've just finished it.While it's true that the chapters on the Constitution, Republicans and Democrats, and Politics are not the easiest to read, I found them interesting enough to keep me reading. The rewards in this book are in the later chapters, on Family, Race and the World at large, where Obama's strong sense of fairness and moral values really come to the fore.
Let's just hope he can play the political games as well as he can talk and write. When reading this book, you can't help but wishing him well in his job as President of the United States. If only there were more politicians like him in the world, it would certainly be a better place.
And did you know that the White House has a Facebook page that you can become a fan of? Cool or what!
