Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Barack Obama, the self-proclaimed "skinny kid with a funny name" who would go on to become the first African-American president in United States history, piqued America's interest at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Within four years Obama went from a virtually unknown politician to having raised an amazing $58 million dollars in the space of sixth months, propelling him into a whirlwind, ultimately successful journey to the White House. Biography offers a comprehensive, behind-the-scenes retrospective of Obama's college days, early political career, and rise to fame. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
