"[I]n New York ... Barack Obama learns that his father--a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man--has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey--first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother's family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father's life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance"--Container.… (més)

Well-written. Much is said about Obama lacking experience, but reading about his life experience, and what he has learned from it, and how he has applied it to work and to his vision is pretty inspiring. Thoughtful, intelligent...very hopeful. ( )

Very gripping story. Amazed at the intensity that Barack had in finding his father and I think that's true of others whose fathers were not around when they were young. ( )

this book was surprisingly beautiful and i didn't really expect that. refreshing to read an autobiographical piece from a politician from BEFORE they ran for office, seemed way more authentic and open. ( )

In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father—a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man—has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey—first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother’s family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father’s life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance ( )

Many biographies and memoirs are told from the perspective of the present, looking back on the past. This one seemed to me to be more focused on the past itself, and how Barack came to terms with who he was as a young man and where his family came from. The parts that struck me as most "normal" for a memoir were the introduction and epilogue, the intro at least being written years after the initial publication of this book. I did enjoy it, even though it wasn't the memoir style I am more used to. I am very glad I listened to him narrate the book as well, I feel that added to the experience. ( )

All men live in the shadow of their fathers -- the more distant the father, the deeper the shadow. Barack Obama describes his confrontation with this shadow in his provocative autobiography, "Dreams From My Father," and he also persuasively describes the phenomenon of belonging to two different worlds, and thus belonging to neither.
