Barack Obama's three books are online. Dreams from my Father is an autobiography, a narrative about coming of age, struggle with identity, and an insight into parts of the world one might not find in one's own life. Audacity of Hope is a discussion of Obama's politicial philisophy. Chapter 4, Politics, and Chapter 5, Opportunity, are worth reading. Whether or not one voted for Obama, try to read the book with an open and objective mind. http://www.randomhouse.com/crown/barackobama/ I haven't read the third, Change We Can Believe In, yet so I can't comment.
