Dreams from My Father, Barack Obama?
If so what did you think?
If not, why?
Do you think it is important to read such a book when developing an opinion about the President of the US?

But wouldn't a persons character and life say alot about how they are to handle things or situations?
In some cases, maybe. I think pretty much all politicians lie. If I keep with that thought, I can only presume that the book is filled with things he wants people to believe. They may be true, but there is almost no way to tell since his experience hasn't led us to believe he is a man of his words. I find him very commercial and marketable, but that doesn't lead me to believe that he is sincere in his actions. I think he likes attention and doesn't care what is best for our country. He is divisive and narcissistic, IMO. I wouldn't spend my time reading his book because I don't find his character worthy (at least from what I can see).

Sorry, I didn't finish that. I didn't read it and don't plan to because it's not what I find relevant to the seat he holds and will try to get re-elected to. I found his experience lacking and his voting record practically non-existent (I don't consider voting 'present' as doing much or taking a stand on any particular issue). He likes to talk a lot and let's face it, he's good at giving a speech. Other than that, I don't find myself captivated by his story.
