Interesting insight...I'm glad I read it. The book's narrative is bit clunky (just my opinion), but I enjoyed the American history lesson Senator Obama gave. His personal stories and historical insights were some of the best parts of the book. His vision for America is still not quite clear to me. He talks a lot of FDR's social contract and social issues in general and I do very much agree (not necessarily with the methods of achievement) with his two top priorities (Education and Energy), but nothing is very specific and not much is said about national security (as if that is a none issue). He does speak a little of America's success in the social realm, but I get the feeling for him the "glass is half empty" (in regards to life in America.) I recommend the book to everybody. It's important to get to know a possible future leader.
