Every one should read this book.

La audacia de la esperanza

Es un libro magníficamente escrito y que tiene un incalculable valor actualmente. Resulta muy interesante leerlo dentro del actual contexto político de EE.UU, y contrastar las ideas del entonces Senador Obama y las del actual Presidente Obama. Es muy difícil encontrar una persona, especialmente un político, que haya mantenido la consistencia y la coherencia en su discurso y en sus ideas. Muchas de las ideas que defiende en su libro de como reconstruir el sueño americano han sido la base de su campaña electoral. Muy recomendable

Barack Obama

I read this book out of pure curiosity. It was written in 2006. I am an octogenarian and a registered Independent. What impressed me was that it was written by the author and not a "ghost." He expresses himself very well. The portions dealing with his background while growing up were fascinating. His grasp of what the general public can do to unite this country is quite provocative. I have listened to many politicians who impressed me negatively with subjects of hate and one liners. It is my concept that this man is a healer and a deep thinker. What's more he is able to think on his feet. Most of the politicians I have heard all my life were so dependent upon a tele-prompter that I found them, to say the least, boring. This man excites this old man as never before. I applaud his writings. I recommend this book to any thinking person who wants to know this man a little more personally.

Buena traduccion, un libro para reflexionar sobre el significado del "american dream"

Altamente recomendado para tratar de entender las complejidades de la sociedad norteamericana actual y la vision del candidato democrata a la presidencia de los Estados Unidos de America. Este es un libro que se puede leer de corrido y con un calidad literaria no muy comun en analisis politicos. A pesar de un par de errores de genero que se le escaparon al corrector en la traduccion por Claudia Casanova, la traduccion de los terminos politicos es muy acertada. Las notas de traduccion son limitadas y van directo al punto. Great translation job. After comparing with the English version, I really liked how the spirit of the book is translated into Spanish despite difficult-to-translate cultural references. The easy flow and style is preserved in the Spanish version making it a very readable book.

Comentario del Libro "La Audacia de la Esperanza"

En su libro "La Audacia de la Esperanza", Barack Obama revela sus pensamientos e ideas políticas, su visión sobre la vida y sus vicisitudes, las expectativas de la gente, empleando un estilo literario que sorprende por lo atildado y agradable, sin dejar de ser profundo por los temas que abarca. Todo un hallazgo; lo leí y lo recomiendo como lector que gusta de contar con buenos libros en su biblioteca.

A liberal says "ouch" he stepped on my toes.

The Audacity of Hope by Senator Obama is a compelling arguement for reexamining how we view and respond to policy issues and political debate. Challenging us to leave our biases at the door before entering. The Senator does this in a manner similar to that of a pastor on sunday morning rebuking then showing and guilding us to a better way. An intellectual and insightful read with moments of hilarity (his decription of a bloggers response to Alan Keyes had me laughing out loud). I look forward to hearings more from him whether on the campaign trail or in the Senate.
