    This was my Presidents Day 2017 read. I purchased because it had both inaugural addresses as well as his farewell address. I was pleased to find it also contained his speech about Sandy Hook and his comments about how Trayvon Martin "could have been my son." Highly recommended. ...

    He was such an eloquent president and it was a treat to read his articulate remarks and see the continuity of his message from pre-presidency to his farewell speech. I miss him. ...

    I needed this book to serve as an antidote to the current political climate. Obama is one of the few adult males who I respect and look up to as a role model - who inspires me. This book - a collection of his speeches - represents him and his message well. Read it if you need a reminde...

    A collection of twenty six speeches by Barrack Obama up to September 2017. It was good reading the entire speeches especially since we only got the highlights from the news. ...

    This collection of President Barack Obama's speeches during his campaign and presidency had me wishing he were still the President. I like his politics, but even those who don't must admire his articulate, moving writing and delivery of his ideas in these speeches, as well as his great...

    This is a really good selection of who Obama was as a President, who he is as a person, commentary on our society and what (in his eyes) needs to be done. It's been heartbreaking to read some of the speeches again because of the subject matter (Newtown, for example, had me in tears aga...

    I'd long been an admirer of former President Barack Obama; I jumped at the opportunity to read this when I found a copy at the library. There are several lessons that we can draw on and the book has several inspirational quotes as well. I would give this compilation of his speeches ten...

    This was a really enjoyable and dynamic read. Although it likely appeals more to those who share President Obama's political ideology, it is definitely worthwhile for anyone interested in governance, rhetoric, and 21st century politics. Overall, the editors have done a good job sele...

    I am hopeful. Despite the current state of American politics and the impact it is having on the World. Because there is just something about Obama's Speeches and We Are the Change We Seek that can't help but make one feel hopeful knowing that there is still this kind of leadership ...

    This book was my husband's present for Christmas and I can't imagine a better and more timely gift. Much has been written on President Obama's oratory style, but I needed to go back to the source to get some oxygen in these dark times. And what an inspirational collection of speeches ...

    Look, sure, Obama was not a perfect president, but I am still so sad that we went from our first black president to our first orange one. I have a lot of thoughts but am far too tired of being outraged all the time to actually explain in detail. I did enjoy this a lot, though. ...

    During this time in politics and with the troubles plaguing our government and our nation, it was inspiring to read this book. I know that I will read it again, especially when I'm my most pessimistic feelings. Obama is forever the optimist and he has taught all of us a lesson in belie...

    The time we live in today requires optimism, we could focus on the terrors of war, we could think of the damage that we human beings have brought about to the environment, we could think of the class of the privilege and their wealth gained at the expense of the middle and low income c...

    Barack Obama was the first President I ever voted for. Part of it was because he was black, but beneath that was his rhetoric. Whatever is said about former President Obama the man was a gifted orator and rhetorician, and lying at the heart of every one of his speeches there is one fun...
