Barack Obama For Beginners: An Essential Guide is the most concise and reliable short biography available on the 44th President of the United States — from his childhood in Hawaii and Indonesia, education at Columbia and Harvard, work as a community organizer, writer, teacher, lawyer, and politician in Illinois, to his historic campaign for President. Barack Obama For Beginners keeps the focus on the man and his record — accomplishments and missteps, praise and criticism — to allow readers to gain a balanced understanding of President Obama as they follow his rise to the White House. Entertaining illustrations enliven the reading experience and highlight important details.

Bob Neer is writing his dissertation to complete his Ph.D. in U.S. history at Columbia University. He received a M. Phil. in U.S. history in 2007, and a J.D. and M.A. in U.S. history in 1991, all from Columbia. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1986. He is a co-founder and co-editor of BlueMassGroup.com, the most widely read independent political blog in New England.
