About this product
- DescriptionDan Youra illustrates 20 Obama quotations with 20 colorful editorial cartoons spread across this 48 page book. Obama Red Book is a compilation of quotations from Barack Obama, 44th president of the United States of America. In the tradition of turning swords into ploughshares, a spirit ignited by Isaiah the prophet and still burning in the charter of the United Nations, this little red book casts its lot on the side of words - sayings and quotations - seeds to plant in the furrows of the next generation. But with this caveat: words of leaders seeking change are invitations to think, t necessarily invitations to act.
