The exciting biography of a dynamic presidential hopeful.

In July 2004, Barack Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention transformed him into a political star. In November 2008, the young state senator from Illinois was elected to become the first African-American president of the United States. Obama's life story captures the hope that defines the American dream. Born to a Kenyan father and a mother from Kansas who divorced when he was only two, Obama grew up in Hawaii and Indonesia. As an adult, he served his community, first as an organizer working to register new voters and to provide opportunities for the poor, and later as a politician. His 2008 campaign inspired many to believe in what he called "the audacity of hope."

This new biography explores the remarkable life of a presidential candidate with full-color photographs, an index, and up-to-date information. "Did You Know?" fact boxes throughout highlight interesting facts about Obama's life and career, and a list of Web sites provides readers with further reading.
