    Once again I have to let people on here know they should not mess with the rating system You don't have to like Obama or read his book but please do not leave ratings on Goodreads just to make that known You are allowed to have your opinions but no reason to mess with the GR rating system by giving it a one star or a 2345 if you haven't actually read the book And that goes for all books Please do not rate without reading because some people genuinely want to filter and search through ratings for honest reviews not to see what trolls and haters say That is all Hope you have a great day

    The 45 cover price is only steep if you don’t consider the implied number humor

    If you think I wouldn't add this after Michelle Obama's Becoming are we even friends?

    Can somebody please go through the troll comments and remove the 1 star ratings of the person continuously posting the same factually incorrect political statement and any troll reviews for that matter Other sites that connect to GoodReads receive a misleading rating due to this troll continuously posting 1 star ratings

    Do we care to match the reality of America to its ideals? I recognize that there are those who believe that it's time to discard the myth that an examination of America's past and an even cursory glance at today's headlines show that this nation's ideals have always been secondary to conuest and subjugation a racial caste system and rapacious capitalism and that to pretend otherwise is to be complicit in a game that was rigged from the start I'm not yet ready to abandon the possibility of America

    One thing I want to mention This is Goodreads For those who don’t know what this app is it’s a planet for readers not a battlefield for competitors You can’t just create multiple accounts copy and paste same review and rate a book you haven’t readWe are here to review books not people We are here to share knowledge and literal thoughts and opinions not to fight for political backgroundsPlease guys be approachable and logical You can express your political opinions in demonstrations and protests but definitely not herePlease don’t rate a book you haven’t even seenThanks

    I honestly cannot wait for this book I have yet to read Michelle Obama's Becoming but I know it'll be great because Michelle Obama is amazingIn a span of eight years in the White House Barack Obama had not one scandal or told one lie Everything he worked his ass for President Cheeto I mean Donald Trump tore it down like it was nothing Obama brought us together by leading us as the President with hope#StillMyPresident

    I am 'reading' this via audiobook because even though it's 29 hours long just listening to Obama's steady voice is reassuring during this current insanity

    I’m so ready for this

    I grew up surrounded by negative rhetoric about Obama and until now I really didn't care about who was right or wrong but now I care I've always been an avid information seeker so this is the start to maybe stepping past what I unintentionally accepted and seeing things from the other side
