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.
