it was amazing
Read from August 09 to 14, 2010

When I started reading this, I never anticipated that it would be a 5-star book. I wanted to read it because I desired to take a look at the self-proclaimed identity of our president and maybe get a good feel of how his brain actually thinks. You can get all of that any more from this book. I am so impressed by this story. He wrote it just after law school, before he ever had any desire of a presidential status. The book is very open and his writing style is absolutely beautiful - his words in many places are like poetry. I'd recommend this book even if he weren't the president of the United States, but since he is, I /especially/ recommend it.
