About This Item

New York: Crown Publishers,, 2006. Inscribed by Obama Octavo. Original black boards, spine lettered in gilt, light brown endpapers. With dust jacket. A fine copy, in fine jacket. First edition, first printing, inscribed by Obama on the title page: "To Roberta - Thanks for your wonderful support of books! Barack Obama". The Audacity of Hope was the second book written by Obama, following Dreams from my Father in 1995. Topping the bestseller lists, the book helped to further bolster the reputation of the then-Illinois senator, who declared his ultimately-successful candidacy for the presidency a few months after publication.

Synopsis

The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream is the second book written by then-Senator Barack Obama. In the fall of 2006, it became number one on both bestseller lists after Obama was endorsed by Oprah Winfrey. In the book, Obama expounds on many of the subjects that became part of his 2008 campaign for the Presidency.
