President Barack Obama narrates his first memoir with his characteristically deliberate and measured style. He recalls both his personal growth and development of political agency, and provides an updated preface that listeners will find as engaging as the body of the audiobook. Hearing the chapters delivered by the author himself is a surprisingly intimate experience that illuminates the various roles he has played in the national and global arenas. This is not an imaginative performance but a heartfelt one that reflects the man the public has come to know. We are brought into his thoughts and dilemmas surrounding being a person of mixed race, reuniting with distant relatives, and shaping the future of his country. Fans of memoirs will enjoy this even if they've already read it in print. M.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
