A little bit history, a little bit politics and a little bit personal reflection. This is a very well written and thoughtful book, without being dense or hard to follow. No matter what your politics may be, you could find something of value in this book. Written when he was still a Senator, it would be interesting to see how far his positions have changed since this was written. ( )
I read this book at three different segments of time. The first few chapters when it came out. The middle part during the 2016 election cycle and final the last four chapters after reading “A Promised Land.” The book hit me personally on many levels as I am only a few months younger then President Obama. I went to college in Illinois and lived in Chicago for several years and he chronicled these years and events so I found myself crossing paths with him so to speak. I found the book to have the same optimism as his campaigns and I liked how open he was about how the tole of politics took on his family. In a way reading this over time was a rather nice reflection of the past 15 years come full circle. Our democracy is in fragile condition but I hope this book can guide younger readers understand his desire for wanting to make the US a “more perfect Union.”
I finally read this book. Figured this was a good time to read it now that he is officially running fr president. Wow, I really like this man. He is so down to earth and humble. I like his ideas, hopes, and dreams for this country.
pretty idealistic (but that was kinda the point I think)
Made me want to be a school teacher (who knows I just might)
While admittedly not as good as his first book, Dreams From My Father, and certainly less personal, The Audacity of Hope is still an interesting read following Obama in the run to what would be his election and eventual 2-term presidency in 2008. Instead of focusing on his life, it mainly centers around his political opinions without giving many straight-forward answers, preferring to take more of an "it's complicated" approach to a lot of issues, and it's interesting to look back on his presidency and compare it to his writings here. I would recommend Dreams From My Father and his wife Michelle Obama's book, Becoming, for more intimate and relatable stories about the people rather than the politicians. By this point, a book about the politics feels quite dated.

Barack Obama, the junior senator from Illinois and the Democratic Party’s new rock star, is that rare politician who can actually write — and write movingly and genuinely about himself.

Senator Obama calls for a different brand of politics--a politics for those weary of bitter partisanship and alienated by the "endless clash of armies" we see in Congress and on the campaign trail; a politics rooted in the faith, inclusiveness, and nobility of spirit at the heart of our democracy. He explores those forces--from the fear of losing, to the perpetual need to raise money, to the power of the media--that can stifle even the best-intentioned politician. He examines the growing economic insecurity of American families, the racial and religious tensions within the body politic, and the transnational threats--from terrorism to pandemic--that gather beyond our shores. And he grapples with the role that faith plays in a democracy. Only by returning to the principles that gave birth to our Constitution, he says, can Americans repair a broken political process, and restore to working order a government dangerously out of touch with millions of ordinary Americans.--From publisher description.
