If you expect this book to be the President's very own Becoming, you are mistaken. In the tradition of political tell-alls by former presidents, this book spans Obama's first presidential campaign and term in excruciating detail. I recommend this book if you are keenly interested in the Obama administration's policy decisions, reactions to disasters, political battles, and compromises.

Arguably the most anticipated title of the year, the book is drawing raves from varied sources, and Publishers Weekly called it "a remarkably introspective chronicle" of the author's political rise and time in the White House.

A man leaving a real legacy. Trump will leave nothing.

Moving on from the trumpy travesty, let's focus on what shaped a true leader.

Coming after the election. History at a turning point.
