How to Think Like Obama

by Daniel Smith

How to Think Like Obama Synopsis

Be inspired by Barack Obama and learn how to think big with this unique insight into the mind of one of the world's great influencers. Born to a black Kenyan father and white American mother, raised in Hawaii and, for a time, Indonesia, Barack Obama would typically never have been tipped for a future president of the United States, such was the world he was born into. But the path towards greatness and the choices he made along the way can be understood by an attitude that saw him take on any challenge - indeed, `Yes We Can' became the all-inclusive slogan for his presidential candidacy. Riding a wave of positivity and hope for the future that swept him all the way to the Oval Office, Obama aimed to define his presidency as one that would provide opportunities for the many, not the few. With the price of change being gritty negotiation and compromise, Obama evolved the skills of a twenty-first century president which belied his relative inexperience to achieve the America that, as a young man, he had dreamed of. How to Think Like Obama reveals the motivations, inspirations and philosophies behind a man who broke the mould to challenge the status quo. With his thoughts on leadership, innovation, overcoming obstacles and fighting inequality, and with quotes by and about him, with this book you too can learn to think like Barack Obama.
