really liked it
Read in January, 2009

So obviously, in the context of Barack Obama as our new President, this is a really interesting look into the growth and thought processes of the man we've pinned a significant amount of hope onto re: the state of the country as he was developing those beliefs. But aside from that, I enjoyed reading about his growing up and his struggles with defining his views and what he considers important. Given my chosen profession, it felt (feels) very familiar. And, nor surprisingly, I didn't read a thing that made me regret voting for him. So that's positive!
