"A superb achievement. With an almost painterly eye, compelling insights, and extraordinary access to Barack Obama and his inner circle, Richard Wolffe's Renegade tells the hidden, dramatic story of the 2008 campaign and also reveals much we did not know about the 44th president's life before politics. (Michael Beschloss)
"I learned something new on practically every page." (Gwen Ifill)

Realy nice and entertaining
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I certainly would. It paints a very broad picture of Obama as a person and the traits that made him president.
What other book might you compare Renegade to and why?
I read it just after Tony Blairs "A journey" and found them quite comparable for the part of campaigning and winning. Both were good an interesting stories.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The whole concept of campaigning and intrigues is interesting but in describing Obamas battles with oponents he often gave me this "got-you-feeling". These constant got-you moments makes the story roll and is good entertainment.
