Barack Books: Get to Know the President

As a man of historic significance there is no shortage of books about our 44th President, Barack Obama. A search for Barack books will lead you to biographies, collections of his speeches, commemorations of his election and inauguration, examinations of his campaign, children’s books and of course the best selling books which he himself has authored.

Books which the President has authored range from autobiographies to extended outlines of his political beliefs and plans for the country. His autobiography is “Dreams from My Father”, which discusses his upbringing as the mixed race child of a White mother and Kenyan father. President Obama tells us of his struggles with racial identity growing up in Hawaii. We follow his growth as he progresses through school, becomes an attorney, community organizer and eventually Senator from Illinois.

His next book was “The Audacity of Hope”. This book is a discussion of President Obama’s political views. It shows us Barack Obama’s views of health care reform prior to his election. He discusses his religious beliefs and how he views of himself as a “cautious liberal” who questions the wisdom of big government.

Only two months prior to his election and in the midst of his campaign against John Mccain, Barack Obama published another book, “Change We Can Believe In”. This was designed as an in depth look at the countries pressing issues and his plans to address them if he were to be elected President. We read of his plans to fix the stalling economy, how we can achieve energy independence and strengthen the middle class.

Those looking to Barack books or writings as a way of learning about his views on race in America and his formative political beliefs may wish to read “The State of Black America 2007: Portrait of the Black Male”. This book is from the National Urban League and its foreword was written by Barack Obama.

An interesting note about Barack Obama books is the huge desire for autographed copies among his fans and collectors. An autographed copy of “Dreams of my Father” has sold for $5,500. A signed first edition of this book is considered highly collectible and may be valued even higher in the future.

An excellently reviewed book about  Obama’s life is “The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama.” This was written by David Remnick, the editor of the New York Times Magazine. It covers everything from his birth to the inauguration.

If you care to learn more about President Obama’s campaign you will want to read “The Audacity to Win”. This Barack book was written by  Obama’s presidential campaign manager David Plouffe and offers a true insider\'s view of the historic campaign.
