The American Journey of Barack Obama - The Editors of Life Magazine (audiobook)


Book Description:
For decades Americans have turned to LIFE to understand, and remember the most important events and people of our time. Just as LIFE once opened up the glittering Kennedy White House, LIFE now focuses its lens on Barack Obama. The American Journey of Barack Obama covers the candidate from his childhood and adolescence to his time as editor of The Harvard Law Review and his Chicago activist years, culminating with the excitement and fervor of the historic 2008 Democratic National Convention. This audiobook includes a Foreword by Senator Edward M.


About Author:
LIFE has long been one of the country's pre-eminent publishers of periodicals and books, and is renowned for its presentation of photography. The editors who bring you THE AMERICAN JOURNEY OF BARACK OBAMA are the same who created One Nation: America Remembers September 11, 2001, also published by Little, Brown, which reached No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list and was hailed by The Wall Street Journal as "a thorough and thoughtful telling."

My Review:
I enjoyed listening to this audiobook about Barack Obama. What a fascinating man he is, and there was so much I had no idea of.
It's odd how being Canadian I am so fascinated by him. I think that when he got elected it struck a cord with the whole world, and not just America. For me, I see someone who wants to do the right thing for all people, not just America, though being president it is a priority. I have learned through listening to this story, that family is very important, as well as morality, truth and humanity. I feel like there is more we can all do in our lives and worlds, and maybe Obama is the leader who can show everyone the way. Live by example you know.
If you enjoy audiobooks, then get a copy and give it a listen. I am sure it will have a profound effect on you too. If you prefer books, then grab a copy that way.

~I won the audiobook. I was not compensated for my opinion.~

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
