Description:Near Fine in Very Good++ dust jacket. True First Edition, First...Near Fine in Very Good++ dust jacket. True First Edition, First Printing of President Obama's first book in Near Fine Condition. Appears to be unread. Binding tight and square. Cover has good sharp corners. Clean text (no ownership marks and NOT a former library book). Dust Jacket in fully removable acid-free mylar sleeve. Issues: Title pages and first few intro pages have slight bend at top corner, not like a typical "dogear". They are hardly noticeable and wouldn't even show up in photos I attempted to take. Dust jacket has very slight creasing at upper spine end, no worse then what is typically seen of new books that have been on the shelve for a short time. These are very slight imperfections that are barely noticeable and do not detract from the beauty of this well cared for book, but it's my policy to be upfront so you get no surprises. Book will be carefully wrapped and insulated in shipping box. Will provide additional detailed photos upon request.

Black cloth spine with gold lettering over white boards. No previous ownership marks. No remainder marks. A very clean, square, tightly bound copy of Obama's first book, now very scarce as most of the initial 7500 print run went to libraries. Book has no faults and appears new, dust-jacket has no tears or chips and only a hint of shelf-wear. A very nice copy of a very difficult to locate book. Fine in a near fine dust-jacket.
I don't even feel as if I should give this any type of star rating but I am required so I give it 2 stars. A bit disappointing for me and maybe it was because of Obama's narration...I'm just not sure. It just seemed to drone on and on for me and when I got to the part I was looking forward to (Obama ...
Barack Obama's memoir of his childhood and early career as a community organizer is incredibly honest and engaging. It is especially fascinating to read now that he is the President-Elect, because it was written before he ever ran for any sort of office and therefore is free of any word-mincing or ...
