    It was so cool to read about Barack’s life- however, this is a Christianity prop book in disguise. Note: Barack is a great man because of his actions and deeds- not because of his God or religious beliefs.

    An interesting account of President Barack Obama's rise to leadership and some basic principles he stood by. Good read and a valuable lesson about not being defined by your circumstances.

It tells the amazing story and process of how he became so successful and how he achieved his dreams. This book starts of with the background story of how his mother(from Hawaii) and his father(from Kenya) met and got divorced. He was born in the time the second civil war was going on, when the blacks were fighting for freedom and equality from the whites. Obama truly witnessed and became a part of changing history of the United States. Barack Obama spent alot of time trying to figure out his identity because at that time there were not many international marrige. Through Columbia University, working as a community organizer, studying law in Harvard, Barack Obama has traveled to the political office in the United States of America. I can connect Barack Obama's story to many of our American heroes. They never gave up at hard times just like Barack Obama and became successful just like him. I rate this book 5 stars because it feel that this book is very information filled and it greatly reflects on President Obama's life. I would recommend this book to EVERYONE!!! I would recommend it to everyone because it is a funtertaining (fun and intertaining!) book that anyone will enjoy....exept for kinds under 8.

    To be honest, I like the book and I give this book a 5. It explains about his life when he was young with a single mom and his grandparents. He was in the top class at Harvard Law School. He has a family who loves so much, and made everyday a good day. He inspires me, when you can make a differences and try something new in life.
