Dreams from my Father

Obama the Community Organiser. Still struggle to believe it. If you approach the life of the Obamas, their rise to the stratosphere of politics, and this being America, their race, it will not be suprising if your conclusions sound like our first sentence. 


This is an excellent autobiography, written before he became president which allows the reader to hear the voice before the now familiar one. Barry is considered, engaging, interested in all community issues but there is never a sense that he was working on running for the highest office. This was pobably perfect both for him and his enemies who never saw him coming until he had arrived. One of the best biographies we have read.

Dreams from my Father

Obama the Community Organiser. Still struggle to believe it. If you approach the life of the Obamas, their rise to the stratosphere of politics, and this being America, their race, it will not be suprising if your conclusions sound like our first sentence. 


The formation of Barry's character happened much earlier, in varied situations and countries, long before he entered elite American universities and became a Law professor.  And long before he was a community organiser on the South Side of Chicago.  This books takes you behind the scenes, drop the newspaper for once, and get an account from the man himself. Follow Barack becoming Barry before he became Barack again as he moves from Hawaii to Indonesia to Kenya then back to New York before settling in Chicago. Then Barack goes to work.


This is an excellent autobiography, written before he became president which allows the reader to hear the voice before the now familiar one.
