Barack Obama served as the 44th President of the United States

Barack Obama served as the 44th President of the United States. His story is the American story - values from the heartland, a middle-class upbringing in a strong family, hard work and education as the means of getting ahead, and the conviction that a life so blessed should be lived in service to others. Barack Obama served as the 44th President of the United States.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thank you so much. Thank you for this wonderful welcome If we are serious about stopping the spread of these weapons, then we should put an end to the dedicated production of weapons-grade materials that create them. Thank you for this wonderful welcome. Thank you to the people of Prague. Thank you to the people of the Czech Republic. Today, I'm proud to stand here with you in the middle of this great city, in the center of Europe. And, to paraphrase one of my predecessors, I am also proud to be the man who brought Michelle Obama to Prague. If we are serious about stopping the spread of these weapons, then we should put an end to the dedicated production of weapons-grade materials that create them.

The stories look not just at the campaign itself, but also at the life of Obama.

The stories included are ones that have been published by Time over the months. They have, however, been given a change in title. The stories look not just at the campaign itself, but also at the life of Obama. Every piece is a wonderful read, quality as one would expect from Time.

They also called his conduct the 'worst nightmare' of the country's founding fathers.

Highlights the life and achievement of the Harvard Law School graduate, legislator, and civil rights lawyer who became the forty-fourth president of the United States through photographs and articles from Time Magazine.

Wow. I had pre-ordered this last month, and hadn't expected it's release for several more weeks. What a nice surprise that is has been released early. I guess Time pushed out in time for Christmas. Anyway, this is great book to remember a historic election. The book is only 96 pages, and it is divided into 10 chapters. My favorite chapters are: "How he learned to win", and "Defeating Hillary". The book gives a nice timeline of Barack's rise to power. It is loaded with never seen before, behind the scenes photo's of Barack and his family. You get to see Barack Obama "the family man", as well as Barack Obama "the politician". Even if you didn't support Obama, this is still a great keepsake to remember an election like no other. This is a true collector's item, at a very modest price.

I wrote a letter to my kids comparing the ideals I recalled from my childhood and the sad things they've seen with Bush's war and so forth, and placed the letter at the front of this book before I wrapped it for each of them. I had the most wonderful feeling that I was a part of a more responsible, more positive future and that I was sharing that with my children. The book is very nice, filled with beautiful photography, and some good information, though I wish it were a bit more complete in its covering of Obama's life.

I bought this as a gift for a relative zealous about the Obama campaign. Reading it myself, and viewing the excellent photographs, I found it was really worth a read. I've read neither of Obama's two books, so can't compare.

This book is by Time Magazine, and the articles, interspersed with the photographs, also by Time's photographer, show Mr Obama from the beginning of his decision to run for President, to the night of the election victory.

Many of the narratives are simply articles taken from Time Magazine at the time things were occuring. They do not attempt to confuse; they have the actual date of the first publishing of the article in Time at the head of each article. Its interesting to see things with the "at the time" point of view. Most of the articles are really well written and thorough, looking fully at the incidents they are reporting.

My favorite was the section on Obama's childhood, his mother and grandparents. It has always bothered me that Mr Obama is ROUTINELY referred to as "Black" or "African-American" when he is in fact biracial, a sub-category that is increasing recognized by the young people of just such marriages as that of his parents. These young people, (one is a relative of mine) do not want to be seen as either "Black" or "White" in many cases. Obama, who grew up in multi-cultural Hawaii for most of his childhood, surely must have felt comfortable as a mixed-race person, and undoubtedly, until he reached Chicago, didn't feel he had to identify himself as entirely "Black".

In Chicago big-city politics, where the old ethnicities apply, he had to choose, and obviously chose to be "Black". Marrying an African-American Chicago-born and raised wife probably hardened the choice for him and made it permanent.

But now, as leader of the United States, he needs, in my opinion, to find himself again as a biracial or multi-cultural person, in order to lead everyone and not be perceived only as the "first Black president" etc.

The book is worth purchasing as a memento of great historical change; also worth reading. Great photographs.

Enjoying the book with no complaints.

You have to buy many copies of past TIME magazines to get the compilation of photos in this book. It is very well written, and interesting to any reader. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in "great historical events". I purchased one each for my adult children as well as myself.

I was so excited to get this awesome book delivered within 24 hours as promised! I paid a little extra for overnight delivery, but you can order it postage free and still receive it quickly, in plenty of time for holiday gift-giving. Time Magazine's "President Obama: The Path to the White House" is a beautiful book, accessible and enjoyable to both the politically savvy, or to any other reader.

From the large glossy picture of our soon-to-be president on the cover of the book, to the many photos of him throughout his life, we see a boadly smiling Barack, who exudes energy and optimism. Even as a child growing up in the often challenging circumstances of his family life--his Kenyan father left the family when he was a child, and his single-mom, rearing the boy the help of his grandparents lived under modest means, for example--Barack always had a huge smile on his face.

In addition to the pictorial history, this book consists of 10 articles which had appeared previously in the Time issues from Oct. 2006 through 17 Nov. 2008. These articles, by Time Magazine staff, are well-written and quite readable. Kudos also to Callie Shell, Time photographer who covered the campaign from 2006 on, and is responsible for most of the photography that comprise this book.

I think that this slim volume--just under 100 pages--will stand as an inspiring commemoration of an crucial historical time for the American people. The story of his "...Path to the White House", from humble beginnings up through his election to the presidency, is one that can give hope and meaning to life. It is a terrific and inspiring gift for anyone on your gift list this holiday season. Thank-you Amazon for making it available to your customers ahead of the scheduled publication date!
