“This book was worth the wait,” said Oprah Winfrey. “Everybody who reads it is going to be on this journey from the grueling and monotonous grind of the campaign, to taking us inside the Oval Office and the Cabinet Room and the Situation Room and sometimes, even the bedroom. This book has both the intimacy and the grandeur coming through in this memoir, and I have so been looking forward to speaking with him about all of it.”
Insightful and deeply personal, the memoir reveals President Obama’s introspective and genuine humanity, which propelled and sustained his journey to the presidency and beyond.
