    The $45 cover price is only steep if you don’t consider the implied number humor

    Once again I have to let people on here know they should not mess with the rating system. You don't have to like Obama or read his book but please do not leave ratings on Goodreads just to make that known.

    You are allowed to have your opinions but no reason to mess with the GR rating system by giving it a one star (or a 2,3,4,5) if you haven't actually read the book. And that goes for all books. Please do not rate without reading because some people genuinely want to filter and search through ratings for honest reviews - not to see what trolls and haters say. That is all. Hope you have a great day!

    I honestly cannot wait for this book. I have yet to read Michelle Obama's Becoming, but I know it'll be great because Michelle Obama is amazing.

    In a span of eight years in the White House, Barack Obama had not one scandal or told one lie. Everything he worked his ass for, President Cheeto--I mean Donald Trump--tore it down like it was nothing. Obama brought us together by leading us as the President with hope.

    I Can't wait!! By none other than the man who received the Nobel Peace Price after bombing the poorest countries on the planet such as Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, and Mali!
    I personally think Memoires of a War Criminal would've been a more apt title, but I can't wait to read what this most charismatic harbinger of world peace has to say about his efforts to heal divisions and spread democracy. For he certainly did a lot of healing during his 8 years as US President.
    This is supposedly going to be an honest accounting of his presidency, so I'm especially looking forward to the undoubtedly riveting chapters on how he started 5 new wars on top of the existing 2; on the mere 26,171 bombs he dropped in 2016 alone; on the hundreds of thousands of third world people that he erased from existence; on the millions of third world families that were forced to flee their countries due to the effects of his foreign policy; on his intelligence agencies funding and accoutering radical foreign terror organisations; on the murderous effectiveness of his revolutionary Combat Drone Program; on how he was the first US President since WW2 to legalize the use of propaganda on the US public; and many more of his vile deeds.
    This is bound to become an instant classic of political literature!
