" This biography has lots of pictures and info in sidebars. Good for the school library. " said.

" Biography level unknownTime 11/9 40min 11/10 50min7 word summary Obama-America-president-Hawaii-Indonesia-lawyer-patriotismDiscussion questionObama traveled many places. Moreover, he experienced many hard time. Now he is president of America.Have you ever experienced hard time?When I was a high school student, I studied so hard to pass examinations.Obama is so famous. His life tells me that I have to do my best to accomplish something! " said.

"This book is chock full of information about Obama's development, and gives a good understanding of how he became so aware of the downtrodden, not just giving it lip service.

Nice to have photos interspersed throughout, and to hear about his varied background. He's my favourite politician, although I've taken him down a notch since the Snowden situation, because he could have done better with all that.

Still, he's done so much for America, breaking barriers that have been there for hundreds of years. I'm glad to have witnessed his presidency, sad its over now, can only hope he may return after the damage sure to be done in the Trump era that's coming.
" said.

" With many quotes from Obama’s own writings, this is a good summary of his works and story. It flows nicer than Dreams of My Father. This edition is only through his inauguration. I liked the photo choices and information given on people involved in the major milestones of his life. " said.

" I am always impressed by how real Obama is. I also felt a certain closeness from the fact that both of our older daughters were born in July, 1998, and our younger children were born exactly a year apart (Mitch was born in June 2002, Sasha was born in June 2001). " said.

"Geared toward adolescents, this was filled with photos and easy text. 3.5 Stars. Politics aside, I like knowing about my President's life. Here's my favorite quote, from a speech in the campaign for US Senate:

"it sometimes appears that Americans today value nothing so much as being rich, thin, young, famous, safe and entertained."

And later, he wrote, "If we aren't willing to pay a price for our values, if we aren't willing to make some sacrifices in order to realize them, then we should ask ourselves whether we truly believe in them at all."
" said.

" It was a good book but I did not like the story line. It was a annoying to read because I don't really like him. " said.

" This biography has lots of pictures and info in sidebars. Good for the school library. " said.
