    DescriptionThe Audacity of Hope is Barack Obama's call for a new kind of politics--a politics that builds upon those shared understandings that pull us together as Americans. Lucid in his vision of America's place in the world, refreshingly candid about his family life and his time in the Senate, Obama here sets out his political convictions and inspires us to trust in the dogged optimism that has long defined us and that is our best hope going forward.

    Review quote
    "Barack Obama is that rare politician who can actually write--and write movingly and genuinely about himself." --"The New York Times" "Obama writes convincingly about race as well as the lofty place the Constitution holds in American life.... He writes tenderly about family and knowingly about faith." --"Los Angeles Times" "An upbeat view of the country's potential and a political biography that concentrates on the senator's core values." --"Chicago Tribune" "He is one of the best writers to enter modern politics." --Jonathan Alter, Newsweek.com "What's impressive about Obama is an intelligence that his new books diplays in aubundance." --"Washington Post Book World " "The self-portrait is appealing. It presents a man of relative youth yet maturity, a wise observer of the human condition, a figure who possesses perseverance and writing skills that have flashes of grandeur.

The Audacity of Hope ... is fascinating in its revelation of Obama as someone who considers and questions, rather than asserts and declares. In nine focused chapters, Obama shows himself an agile thinker.
