Weekend read: Interview with Barack Obama

Barack Obama

My recommended read for this weekend is a great (free) Kindle Single interview with Barack Obama by David Blum. It’s not the world’s longest interview, and nor are there any stunning revelations within it, but it was an interesting read nonetheless. Obama links his personal history to his Presidential decisions in a way that was interesting to me – though cynics might just say I’m naive!
