Weekly Review - Barrack's Books

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Dreams of my Father and Audacity of Hope: I just finished these two audio books on my IPod. It does not matter if you are a Democrat, Republican or other there is no denying that Barrack Obama is a good speaker and these books prove that his writing alone is just as powerful. I suggest picking up both books and if you enjoy audio books they are read by the author giving them that little extra boost to make them not only informative but entertaining. They are equally well written however I do suggest reading them in the order they were written Dreams first then Audacity. Dreams tells the story of his childhood and life up to his mid twenties when he went to visit Kenya. Audacity is mostly about his visions, beliefs and ideas for himself and his life as well as his politics.

The audio version of Dreams of my Father has an epiloge which includes his speech at the last Democratic National convention. After hearing the story of his life, learning where all his convictions come from that speech brought tears to my eyes. And I did not even vote for the guy (in the primaries that is).
