From the moment he burst onto the national political scene, Barack Obama has fascinated and inspired people more than any politician in decades. Millions have wondered how his mind works, what passions drive him, and what makes him such an effective leader.
The fifth book, and third audio book in this series, explores the ideas, inspirations, and experiences that have shaped how President Obama thinks about tough issues, how he makes decisions, and how he motivates others.
Award winning journalist, Sasha Abramsky, interviewed close to one hundred of his friends, classmates, colleagues, teachers, staffers, mentors, book editors, media consultants, fellow politicians, and even his next-door neighbors from Hyde Park, Illinois, who offer candid and surprising observations.
Inside Obama's Brain isn't a biography; rather, it's a psychological profile, perfect for anyone who hopes to model his astonishing success or simply to understand him better.
