Language is an extension of the human's biological impulse, life experience, spiritual and emotional abstract. It identifies us a person, a community and a concept. For so long, the growth of the human race was limited by its respective individual lifetimes. However, the advent of language, and subsequently, writing, allowed the collaborative and long term compilation, rumination and dissemination of knowledge to exceed beyond a single lifetime. It also offers the opportunity for reputed, influential or even notorious members of our species to preserve their thoughts and ideas on paper (or papyrus, tree barks, parchment - take your pick) for the benefit of future generations.

Who would've thought that works such as Plato's Republic, the Upanishads of the Indo-Aryan sages, or the musings of Ptahhotep, would traverse the turbulent millennia and continues to be read and appreciated by the metaphysicists and epistemologists of the current generation?

While we do not suggest the writings of our presidential candidates would reach similar heights and continues to be held in esteem a thousand years from now, it does offer us the opportunity to delve into their minds and learn the underlying fundamentals of their politics.

Current President of the United States

Barack Obama has published eight books, consisting of a memoir, three original titles, three conceptual children’s book utilizing his inauguration and campaign speeches, as well as one audio book, which is a reading of his two best sellers, The Audacity of Hope and Dreams from My Father, by Obama himself.

Obama’s first foray into the literary world came in the shape of his memoir, Dreams from My Father, a moving and compelling piece that offers readers a raw insight into Obama’s journey of self-discovery - of learning, understanding and ultimately accepting his mixed heritage.

His second book, Audacity of Hope, is a transformative piece that harkens back to the principles behind the founding of our nation as a means to resolve the many issues that we face today. The title of the book, as well as its genesis, lies behind Obama’s landmark speech in the Democratic National Convention in 2004. The phrase ‘audacity for hope’, which was used in the speech, became a catchphrase among the more idealistic segments of the Democratic grassroots during the period.

Change We Can Believe In, written with the help of his staffers, basically represents the philosophy of Obama himself; a manifesto of sorts presenting his ideas, plans, hopes and aspirations for the country based almost entirely from his campaign speeches.

His children’s books, meanwhile, is a positive and educational collection of photographs (Yes, We Can!), illustrations (Our Enduring Spirit) and stories about thirteen historical figures (Of Thee I Sing).

A bookworm himself, Obama’s tastes and preferences in reading are varied as it is numerous, and covers titles such as Tony Morrison’s Song of Solomon, Ernest Hemingway’s For Whom The Bell Tolls, and Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin – an intriguing piece, as it recounted former president Abraham Lincoln’s attempt at harnessing the talents of his greatest rivals by giving them a position in his cabinet.
