"Obama… is that rare politician who can actually write" (New York Times). Written while he was still the junior United States senator from Illinois, Obama's second book calls for a renewal of politics grounded in "a set of ideals that continue to stir [America's] collective conscience; a common set of values that bind us together despite our differences; a running thread of hope that makes our improbable experiment in democracy work."
A fine inscribed copy.
