Format: audiobook

Before he became President, Barack Obama, among many things, was a writer. His second book, The Audacity of Hope, is about all the major topics that Obama went to address during his presidential run. He not only included his political views, but personal stories to help support the areas he felt needed the most attention – including race and family.

It turned out to be a great book to listen to as it was read by the author himself, it felt more true than had someone else been saying the words. It supported everything Obama has been fighting for and issues the human race has faced, including how to balance all the areas of your life without losing what is most important.

I recommend it to anyone who not only is an Obama fan, but even to those who are interested in the human side of a political figure.
