The book, Obama: From Promise to Power, is written by David Mendell, a journalist who has covered Obama since 2003. Mendell paints an intimate portrait of the Senators life, from behind-the-scenes political tactics to his chances of winning the presidency in 2008.
And if you haven’t read Sentaor Barack Obama’s classic memoir, Dreams from my Father, now is your chance to order it and read it.
The book traces Barack Obama’s life as a child to his emergence into manhood. His life is then transformed and he at last reconciles his divided inheritance. This book will echo far into the future. The universality of its message will resonate with serious readers for many generations to come. John Presta.
