Language is an extension of the human's biological impulse, life experience, spiritual and emotional abstract. It identifies us a person, a community and a concept. For so long, the growth of the human race was limited by its respective individual lifetimes. However, the advent of language, and subsequently, writing, allowed the collaborative and long term compilation, rumination and dissemination of knowledge to exceed beyond a single lifetime. It also offers the opportunity for reputed, influential or even notorious members of our species to preserve their thoughts and ideas on paper (or papyrus, tree barks, parchment - take your pick) for the benefit of future generations.

Who would've thought that works such as Plato's Republic, the Upanishads of the Indo-Aryan sages, or the musings of Ptahhotep, would traverse the turbulent millennia and continues to be read and appreciated by the metaphysicists and epistemologists of the current generation?

While we do not suggest the writings of our presidential candidates would reach similar heights and continues to be held in esteem a thousand years from now, it does offer us the opportunity to delve into their minds and learn the underlying fundamentals of their politics.



2012 Democratic Presidential Nominee
Current President of the United States

Barack Obama

Presidential Candidate Barack Obama

Obama Books


• Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance
• The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream
• Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama's Plan to Renew America's Promise
• Three Wishes by Barack Obama by Barack Obama


• Yes, We Can! A Salute To Children From President Obama's Victory Speech
• Our Enduring Spirit: President Barack Obama's First Words to America (Illustrator: Greg Ruth)
• Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters by Barack Obama


• The Essential Barack Obama: The Grammy Award-Winning Recording

Barack Obama has published eight books, consisting of a memoir, three original titles, three conceptual children’s book utilizing his inauguration and campaign speeches, as well as one audio book, which is a reading of his two best sellers, The Audacity of Hope and Dreams from My Father, by Obama himself.

Obama’s first foray into the literary world came in the shape of his memoir, Dreams from My Father, a moving and compelling piece that offers readers a raw insight into Obama’s journey of self-discovery - of learning, understanding and ultimately accepting his mixed heritage.

His second book, Audacity of Hope, is a transformative piece that harkens back to the principles behind the founding of our nation as a means to resolve the many issues that we face today. The title of the book, as well as its genesis, lies behind Obama’s landmark speech in the Democratic National Convention in 2004. The phrase ‘audacity for hope’, which was used in the speech, became a catchphrase among the more idealistic segments of the Democratic grassroots during the period.

Change We Can Believe In, written with the help of his staffers, basically represents the philosophy of Obama himself; a manifesto of sorts presenting his ideas, plans, hopes and aspirations for the country based almost entirely from his campaign speeches.

His children’s books, meanwhile, is a positive and educational collection of photographs (Yes, We Can!), illustrations (Our Enduring Spirit) and stories about thirteen historical figures (Of Thee I Sing).

A bookworm himself, Obama’s tastes and preferences in reading are varied as it is numerous, and covers titles such as Tony Morrison’s Song of Solomon, Ernest Hemingway’s For Whom The Bell Tolls, and Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin – an intriguing piece, as it recounted former president Abraham Lincoln’s attempt at harnessing the talents of his greatest rivals by giving them a position in his cabinet.

Ron Paul

Presidential Candidate Ron Paul

Paul Books

• The Revolution: A Manifesto
• End the Fed by Ron Paul

Here’s a question for you: Is the 76 year old, 12-term Republican member of Congress a politician or is he a writer? That’s easy, you say.

What if we told you that Ron Paul is arguably the most prodigious writer among any elected official in recent history? While he has a while yet to go before matching former president Jimmy Carter’s 23 titles, the former obstetrician has an incredible body of work that has been, and continues to be published in numerous publications, be it for the FREE Foundation and Mises Institute, or his medical, law, economic and political articles, and not forgetting of course, his personal favorite, civil liberties.

His most recent bestseller, The Revolution: A Manifesto, brings a new perspective to Paul’s eternal advocacy of individual rights, a non-interventionist foreign policy, judicial activism and the supremacy of the constitution; all the while espousing a radicalism in approach towards achieving his Utopian Republican model, which parallels classical republicanism, a concept that incorporates the ideals of civic virtues built upon a mixed constitution.

Another bestseller, End The Fed, which was released just eight days before The Revolution, sees Paul laying a damning verdict on the Federal Reserve, labeling it as irresponsible and corrupt, and going as far as insinuating that the Federal Reserve Act is ‘harmful’ to the nation. It is interesting to note that barely seven months earlier, with almost no notable press coverage to speak of, Paul introduced to Congress the bill H.R. 833: Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act, which failed to pass the House Committee on Financial Services.

Paul’s next book, Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom, is scheduled for an April release. It promises an in-depth look into the issues of personal rights and liberty and promises to be yet another bestseller for the Congressman.
