  • How did Dr. William Sears have time to write like 50 books, travel the country speaking, be a father to a large family, be a prof at a medical school, and have a medical practice?

  • Well, since he is not doing anything to help the economy, didn't do anything with the oil spill, Hmmmm???? not really doing anything else but vacationing, I'd say sure he's got plenty of time, heck he could re-write the encyclopedia. And the kicker is I voted for him! What the heck was I thinking???

  • He doesn't. Someone writes it for him and he stamps his name on it, taking the credit.

  • omg ..The book was finished before he took office.
    The manuscript was written, and the book deal signed, before the President Obama's inauguration in January of 2009, according to Random House.Obama's 40-page book will have a first printing of 500,000 copies and a list price of $17.99.Proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to a scholarship fund for the children of fallen and disabled American soldiers.

  • He gets alot of help. Also, some people are always "on the go" and I imagine the President is one of those people.

  • Most people will tell you - if you want something done, give it to a busy person. I didn't know that he wrote the book before going into office (thanks to the PP), but we're all moms, how do we get work, dinner, kids, homework, housework, loving and sleeping done?
