A riveting and deeply intimate account of history in the making, from the president who instilled faith in us in the power of democracy.
In the thrilling and highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama recounts the story of his improbable journey from young man in search of identity to leader of the free world, recounting in singular detail and personal detail his political upbringing and emblematic moments of the first term of his presidency (2008-2012).
By looking back on the history of his presidency, Barack Obama offers a unique and penetrating exploration of the phenomenal amplitude but also of the limits of presidential power, as well as a singular testimony on the springs of domestic politics and international diplomacy. . He frankly talks about the opposition forces that have risen up against him, on the domestic front as well as abroad.
This powerful and beautifully written book is an expression of Barack Obama's deep conviction: democracy is not a gift from heaven but a building, based on empathy and mutual understanding, that we build together, day after day.
As a bonus: the preface read by Barack Obama himself, in English, is offered to you after the preface in French.
