Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama's Plan to Renew America's Promise by Barack Obama
Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama's Plan to Renew America's Promise

lamb, September 9, 2008

This book is a "must read" for this election season. It provides a clear and comprehensive statement of what Obama would do as president to get the country back on the right track. As a scientist, I am heartened by his commitment to improving education in math and science, and his promise to double federal funding of basic scientific research. He gets it that science education and basic scientific research are crucial for innovation, and that innovation is essential to building a strong economy and creating good jobs. The inclusion in the book of some of his best speeches is a wonderful bonus.
