Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer David Maraniss reveals the startling story of US President Barack Obama's early years.
At the heart of Obama's psyche, and therefore his presidency, is his life-long struggle to form an identity.
Through in-depth interviews with friends, lovers, family and Obama himself, and love letters penned by him as a young man, Maraniss portrays Obama's extraordinary transformation from a mixed race boy raised by white grandparents in laid-back Hawaii to an African-American man with a burning political vision and vocation.
As this remarkable biography shows, Barack Obama's unique life is one of survival, love and fierce ambition.
