Absolutly loved it! Can’t wait for the second!
worth reading or listening to.
garbage.. wrost president to ever buy his way in .
This book was truly amazing, you could follow Barack through decision making and he's thought behind the crazy rolling coaster.
As I complete the final seconds of this book, I feel as if I have a different insight on the country during the time President Obama's presidency. He presented keen intellect and a sharp analysis of how he perceived events that shaped his tenure in office. The one thing I love to do once I finish reading a book is to go read others reviews to see if they had the same immersive experience as myself, and it's quite sad reading so many of the anonymous negative comments about him. Honestly, I was hoping more people were "Fired Up, Ready to go!". Political views shouldnt play such a major part in how we see, judge, or perceive someone yet it's an unfortunate prejudice America still deals with. Overall I really enjoyed the book and even more with him reading it as it gave an essential value to his life, political encounters and story.
I love hearing this man speak and hearing the human side of a real President. A real family man and a man concerned about his country. It's also really sad to see that rather than work together for the good of our country, Republicans, like the deplorable Mitch McConnell, would rather do everything in their power to block a democratic president from doing good just because he's not a republican. Sad. But I won't take away from the fact that this book, although long, was great. I never tire of listening to Barack Obama speak.
Barack Obama's memoir really gives you all of the details like McCullough & Chernow books. Too long (esp. since there's 2 volumes) but really good.
I loved this book! He spoke of his mistakes and well as his wins. I learned so much! I will read his other books as well. Well done Mr. President! Wish we had you back!
Can't wait for part2. Wish that he would narrate other books too.
