The 44th President of the United States of America. A look back at the most memorable moments of Barack Obama's extraordinary life, beloved family and historic political career.
It’s been a over a decade since Barack Obama made history when he was elected America's first black president. During his eight years in the White House, he brought about incredible change: He reformed health care, legalized same-sex marriage and ordered the military operation that resulted in the death of September 11 mastermind Osama bin Laden.
This book takes a close look at Obama's life: From his lonely childhood in Hawaii and formative college years to how the relatively unknown Illinois Senator beat veteran Senator John McCain in the 2008 election. It also reveals how Michelle Obama sacrificed her career and family life in order for her husband to achieve his dream of becoming president. Plus, what the Obamas have been up to since they left the White House, and what’s next for them.
