We Are the Change We Seek: The Speeches of Barack Obama Reviews

  • Jennifer

    I want this on Audible.

  • Andrea Engle

    This collection of 25 speeches by former President Barack Obama testifies to his magnificent eloquence ... cogently reasoned and pertinent to each occasion, these speeches highlight his wisdom and tolerance ... if only our technology were such that each written document could be accompanied by its videotape ... to end with Obama's mantra: "God bless you. And God bless the United States of America."

    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.

    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 believing you can reach for the stars and in acknowledging what a blessing it is even if you only reach the moon.

    He did great things and suffered disappointments and held the nations hand through tragedies. The speeche

    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 believing you can reach for the stars and in acknowledging what a blessing it is even if you only reach the moon.

    He did great things and suffered disappointments and held the nations hand through tragedies. The speeches included in this book reflect on many of those moments and remind us what a thoughtful, talented and articulate leader Mr. Obama was.

    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 style and wisdom. The speeches are in chronological order, so this book is also wonderful trip through recent history, good and bad. Each speech is preceded by a headnote that describes the circumstances in which

    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 fundamental message: hope.

    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 fundamental message: hope.

    The speeches collected in this book represent Obama's the best of Obama's ability as an orator, and each speech is introduced with a brief explanation of the context and cultural climate in which it was delivered. Whether it is his remarks on the death of Trayvon Martin, the necessity for a world-wide effort to curb the effects of Climate change, or even his early speeches in which the man steadily establishes his public voices. These speeches are a pleasure to read because of the man's eloquence and depth of thought.

    This book is a lovely resource for future historians and biographers of the President, or for anyone who simply studies the craft of public and political rhetoric. For my own part it was a chance to see the growth a politician who meant so much to me when I was just eighteen and casting my first vote. Even when I disagreed with the President, or felt a course of action was a bad move, there was always a careful effort to communicate what was in his heart and thoughts, and try to unite voters and citizens with a positive message that reinforced the idea that democracy is what you make it and what you are willing to give to it.

    It seems like an eternity ago when we had a president worth quoting.
