  • Si vous vous intéressez à la politique US

    Un livre lu par son auteur, ça a de la prestance. Barack parle très lentement et distinctement, c'est un plaisir à écouter. J'ai avant tout apprécié la première partie, l'enfance et l'adolescence d'Obama avant qu'il se lance dans la politique. Pour le reste, il faut aimer la politique (la gestion de la crise des subprimes, Obama-care, les affaires étrangères...) Ca se finit avec l'assassinat de Ben Laden... donc il y aura forcément un tome 2. Il y a quelques détails de sa vie privée: on apprend qu'il fumait comme un pompier, qu'il aime jouer au basket, qu'il apprécie les diners pris en famille avec ses filles, mais globalement ça touche surtout la vie politique. Au final, j'en retiens que le Président est quelqu'un de très isolé, et qui passe sont temps à faire tourner les assiettes au bout d'un bâton, comme dans le cirque (c'est une image qu'il donne). Je trouve qu'il ne peint pas une image très à son avantage de Michèle, qui donne l'impression de faire sa vie dans son coin. Ne pas s'attendre à des scoops, même s'il fait un court portrait des ses homologues lors du G8 (Sarkozy, Merkel, ...). Au final un bon roman, que je n'aurais jamais trouvé le temps de lire, mais que je trouve le temps d'écouter.

  • Not as good as I hoped...

    I enjoyed the more personal aspects. I thought I wd really enjoy BO reading his work but his delivery felt a bit tedious. I listened to the end but really was a bit disengaged from two thirds of the way through. I plan to read/listen to Michelle Obama’s book Becoming ...next.

  • What leadership looks, sounds like!

    Barack Obama’s dulcet tones are soothing, even as he canters through topics as unimaginable as 9-11 to austerity, the collapse of the Financial System in 2008 to horrific natural disasters. Every issue is handled from the perspective of age old principles of good governance, integrity, with a razor sharp intellect. His ability to out reason Trumps racist birtherism with humour while sharing his reasonable viewpoint stands in stark contrast to Trumps recent incitement of a riot and attack on the Capital. This book was a wonderful counterweight to the January 2021 madness - Obama for president in 2025!

  • Engaging and honest

    I really enjoyed listening to this comprehensive account of Barack Obama's life. Although a large and detailed book, it never felt long or difficult to get through. Obama is as good a writer as he was a world leader. Can't wait for the second volume!

    Thanks for your feedback!
