This charismatic leader Barack Obama, of African and American parents has risen to the highest office as Commander and Chief of the United States of America and has created Change along his Path To The White House, earning him an unforgettable place in history. Barack Obama’s biography is still being written. The facts are clear but the timeline still baffles his competitors. From humble beginnings, Barry of questionable nationality rose from his circumstances to academic greatness and was catapulted into the world of politics after a brief stint in community transformation. Putting his background of poverty behind him, education first and relying on his religion to guide his Path To The White House, Barack Obama was on course to becoming a president. Barack’s autobiography sells off the shelves but there is still one book amazing its readers through the author’s artistic construction of lines from simple beginnings. This book molds historic pages somewhat like Barack Obama. The... More > author of Path To The White House chronologically assembled over 100 poems that were written over the period of the Primaries through to the General Election. The Campaign trail is captured with some of the most nostalgic artistry all created in acrostic style. This is a must read for the President-elect Barack Obama and his family but most importantly this 240 pages collection should be on your shelves for repeated reference. The poems may have been recording history but they also provide very insightful and inspirational material for the young and old. This book was published and released the morning after the Election which means that the author’s last poem was written as an immediate response to the results of the Election. The honesty of visceral expressions is preserved in the poem titled CHANGE. This book will undoubtedly be a collector’s piece as it also salutes in tribute to Barack Obama’s grand mother, Madelyn Dunham, who he affectionately called ”Toot”, the role she played in ushering in the 44th President of the U.S.A. One of the outstanding things about the book’s author Khaidji, is the place of Birth. Khaidji was born on the Island of Barbados, birthplace to singing superstar Rihanna. Americans have shown their love for Bajans (people born in Barbados are Barbadian but are colloquially called Bajans) and they will like the unusual style of Khaidji. Barack Obama’s Path To The White House, was followed all over the world. This unusual kind of poetry can be enjoyed by all audiences. If you never read poetry before, read this. The play on words and language is bound to intrigue and in all this you get a piece of the Campaign Trail in this very creative style.< Less
