Mr. Andrews has presented a well chronicled, critical analysis of the presidency of Barack Obama - the 44th presedent of the United States of America. The book offers, not just good reading but inresting leadership blunders as well as inspiring evaluation of how a nation was so highly betrayed by the inexperience of a "preacher of hope and change without substance. This book should become a text for students majoring in leadership. I highly recommend the book. - U. Joseph Jeremiah (Atlanta, Georgia)
