He's written million-selling books about his early years and the meaning of public life. Now, Sen. Barack Obama, with the help of his campaign staff, has another side to share with readers: policy wonk.
"Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama's Plan to Renew America's Promise" is coming out Sept. 9 as a paperback with an announced first printing of 300,000 copies and a list price of $13.95. Looking ahead to the digital market, the e-book, also $13.95, will go on sale the day before.
The book will include a foreword by Obama, the Democrats' presumptive presidential nominee, and feature sections written by members of Obama for America, his presidential campaign on such issues as health care, energy and national security. "Change We Can Believe In" also compiles some of his better-known speeches, including his celebrated talk on race and his recent address in Berlin.
