Dreams from My Father. I really enjoyed it. I listened to it on audiobook. He's a great narrator, and I was a little shocked at how little I actually knew about his background. Very interesting!

Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance by Barack Obama. In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father, a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man, has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey.
