Book Giveaway - The American Journey of Barak Obama

I am hosting the giveaway of this beautiful book published by The Editors of Life Magazine. This book is so generously being made available to one of my readers by Anna from Hatchette Book Group

The American Journey of Barack Obama covers the candidate from his childhood and adolescence to his time as editor of The Harvard Law Review and his Chicago activist years, culminating with the excitement and fervor of the historic 2008 Democratic National Convention. The unfolding drama of Obama's life and political career is cinematic in scope, and never has it been presented so compellingly.

In addition to a powerful array of photographs that were taken by many of the country's greatest photographers (and some that were snapped, in the quiet moments, by Obama family members themselves), this book also includes a Foreword by Senator Edward M. Kennedy, an incisive narrative biography and original essays by some of our finest writers, including Gay Talese, Charles Johnson, Melissa Fay Greene, Andrei Codrescu, Fay Weldon, Richard Norton Smith, Bob Greene and several others. Many readers will find a new understanding of Obama. All readers will feel that they are bearing witness to a singular, undeniably American story.

His win has engaged me in politics again and I want to start reading his books and books about him.

I find him to be a very charismatic and fascinating person. I'd love to win this book to learn more about him.

I for one am majorly interested in getting my hands on this book because I have been an Obama supporter for a long time, and I followed this campaign season very closely. Besides, it's a Life book, which means it's probably got a great layout with fantastic pictures!
