Flood Of Obama Books To Be Released

Prepare for the Obama book blitz.

The Associated Press reports that several books about the presumptive Democratic nominee will be released this summer and fall – everything "from children's stories and photographs to attacks from both the left and the right."

Obama has penned two books of his own, "Dreams From My Father" and "The Audacity of Hope," which have remained on bestseller lists for much of his presidential run.

Some of the Obama-centric books to be released are below. There is, as you'll see, something for just about every taste:

  • "Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope," a children's book.
  • "Yes We Can," another book for young people.
  • "Barack Obama in His Own Words," a collection of speeches.
  • A book on Obama by Evan Thomas and the staff of Newsweek.
  • "The Faith of Barack Obama."
  • "The Rise of Barack Obama."
  • "The Decline of Black Politics: From Malcolm X to Barack Obama," a left-wing critique.
  • "The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media's Favorite Candidate," a right-wing critique.
  • "Barack Obama Is Your New Bicycle: 366 Ways He Really Cares."

    And finally...

  • "Obama — The Postmodern Coup: Making of a Manchurian Candidate." The publisher of that one argues that Obama is "the megalomaniac front man for a postmodern coup by the intelligence agencies, using fake polls, mobs of swarming adolescents, superrich contributors and orchestrated media hysteria to short-circuit normal politics and seize power."
