I have found this book so prevalent in relationship to my own life As the daughter of a former Black Ambassador and a white British mother my own struggles with inter cultural relationships and finding one's own niche in life In his memoir written at the age of 33, Barack Obama, the son of a black African father and a white American mother, describes the search for meaning in his life as a black American. It is a detailed honest and emotional account of his personal quest and meaning of his life as a black American. I found it so easy to read and comprehend also the degree of his emotional intelligence shone through This was an insite to a very open strident young man who wanted to be at one with himself and his place in America Overcoming diversity Inspiration and motivation two key words to describe the emotion felt on completing this well written book!
