Hi, am from India. Read the book from a library. Found it quite interesting. Having absolutely no idea about the world happenings in general, the book proved quite helpful to know and understand Obama. Thanks!

Ms Cris said...

Actually I read the child version of the book, A Promise Of Change. :-)

Dear Mr. Mendell:

I am thoroughly enjoying – in the few days preceding the election – reading your first-rate work on Barack Obama, one which nicely complements his own books, which I read at the beginning of the campaign.

One thing you may wish to communicate to Senator (and, hopefully, President-elect beginning this coming week): the quote that he says is his favorite MLK quote(page 227 of the paperback edition of your book), and is also one of my favorites from any source), “the arc of the moral universe is long, But it bends toward justice,” is not MLK’s. Rather, it is that of the nineteenth century abolitionist Theodore Parker (for corroboration, see Arc of Justice: A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age. by Kevin Boyle, concerning the 1925 Ossian Sweet case Detroit, which won a 2004 National Book Award).

Sincerely yours,

Rick Nagel

You quote Barack agin attributing the "arc of justice" quote to King, at page 331.

Hi Mr. Mendell,
Thanks for your biography of President-Elect Barack Obama. You provide an outsider's perspective of Barack & Michelle's relationship, which makes me admire them even more for the love & respect they have for one another. Since I read both of President Obama's books, I have been searching for more writings about this extraordinary man & family. Do you plan to publish a book about the 2008 Presidential elections? I would be interested in reading about your experience.

Just finished your book. I really enjoyed it, interesting and readable. I live in Chicago and I'm very frustated with Mayor Daley and Alderman Tunney who just goes along with the Mayor (parking meter deal, Olympics).

I was impressed with Inspector General Hoffman with how he stood up to Mayor Daley with the report. Inspector Hoffman is supported by Fitzgerald which is great. I'm interested in learning more about Fitzgerald and I think he sets a great example.

Any thoughts on these issues? Are you working on anything now?

The company offers a single distinct [url=]gia re moi ngay[/url] for each doing work working day in every one of the marketplaces it serves. The Groupon functions as an assurance offer making use of ThePoint's system: if a particular variety of men and women indication up for the provide you, then the deal gets to be obtainable to all if the predetermined bare bare minimum is not met, no one will get the offer that working working day. This reduces threat for suppliers, who can deal with the coupon codes as volume special special discounts as properly as earnings advertising and marketing resources. Groupon helps make cash by maintaining about 50 % the money the client pays for the coupon.

For occasion, an $eighty therapeutic massage could be obtained by the buyer for $forty by signifies of Groupon, and then Groupon and the retailer would split up the $40. That is, the retailer provides a therapeutic massage valued at $80 and receives about $twenty from Groupon for it (under a fifty%/fifty% break up). Or, if $240 really worth of residence portray solutions is acquired by the customer for $fifty by way of Groupon, then the organization receives $twenty 5 and Groupon keeps $twenty five. The client receives the massage, or the house painting service, in these examples, from the retailer for which they initially paid out out $forty (or $fifty) to Groupon. There are specific businesses to which Groupon at very first did not supply its vendors, this sort of as taking pictures ranges and strip golfing tools nonetheless, capturing ranges have been showcased on Groupon.

Not like classified marketing and marketing, the support supplier does not spend any upfront worth to participate: Groupon collects personalised knowledge from ready shoppers and then contacts only these consumers, primarily by every working day email, who could potentially be fascinated in a unique remedy or company.

Groupon employs a massive range of copywriters who draft descriptions for the offers highlighted by e mail and on the net site. Groupon's advertising textual content for the 'deals' has been observed as a contributing factor to the recognition of the internet site, that contains a distinctive blend of comprehensive reality-examining and witty humor.

Owing to Groupon's market at the moment getting largely composed of woman clients, the offers are generally centered on the total health, health and splendor marketplaces.

There are attainable problems with the business item. For illustration, a successful offer you could briefly swamp a minor enterprise with as well a good deal of customers, jeopardizing a likelihood that consumers will be dissatisfied, or that there will not be enough item to fulfill the demand from customers from consumers. Gap, a large garments retailer, was in a placement to handle 445,000 discount codes in a nationwide offer (even though it experienced server problems at one situation), but a smaller sized business could turn into out of the blue flooded with customers. 1 espresso shop in Portland, Oregon struggled with an boost in clients for 3 months, when it sold close to one,000 Groupons on the one particular doing work day it was provided, in accordance to one particular report. In response to equivalent troubles, Groupon officers level out that 'deal' subscriptions ought to be capped in progress to a cost-effective quantity.
