    Date:

    Location: Berkeley

    Genre: Nonfiction – Memoir/Politics 
    Year of Publication: 2006 
    Approximate Page Count: 362 pages 
    Summary: Before being elected the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama was a U.S. Senator representing the state of Illinois, during which time he wrote The Audacity of Hope. This book is his call for a new kind of politics, a politics that builds upon those shared understandings that pull us together as Americans. The book, which is divided into nine chapters, outlines Obama's political and spiritual beliefs, as well as his opinions on different aspects of American culture, expounding on many of the subjects that became part of his 2008 campaign for the presidency. Lucid in his vision of America's place in the world, refreshingly candid about his family life and his time in the Senate, Obama here sets out his political convictions and inspires us to trust in the dogged optimism that has long defined us and that is our best hope going forward.
