The New York Times bestseller-an unprecedented look into the life and character of the woman who raised a president.
Barack Obama has written extensively about his father but credited his mother for "what is best in me." Still, little is known about this fiercely independent, spirited woman who raised the man who became the first biracial president of the United States. This book is that story.
In A Singular Woman, award-winning New York Times reporter Janny Scott tells the story of this unique woman, Stanley Ann Dunham, who broke many of the rules of her time, and shows how her fierce example helped influence the future president-and can serve as an inspiration to us all.

The author just used her notes
This book describes too many non essential people in Stanley Ann's life. It's as if the author just printed her notes, interviews and recordings without editing. It's long winded and boring. There isn't enough information about the main character, but we get vivid details about her acquaintances and others whom just happen to be in the same area as her. I struggled to get through the book. I was very disappointed because I had such high hopes after an interview I heard with the author on NPR.
Should be a good book as it is about our President . All republicans should be required to read
