Obama with new post-presidency book deal

Mar 23, 2009 by

There are very few things that can top the accolade of being a critically lauded author of a book that also happens to be a best-seller (actually, that depends on who you ask.  There are those of the opinion that that statement is an oxymoron).  Well, how about being a critically lauded author of a book that also happens to be a best-seller, oh, and he’s the President of the United States?

Obama has agreed with Crown Publishing Group to deliver a new nonfiction book after he leaves office.  Already the best-selling author of Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope received $2.5 million last year in book royalties

There’s something about being a world leader with an acknowledged intellect and a couple of critically lauded books that lends him a sort of street cred.  I know I’d at least pay more attention to my national leaders if they could muster a book good worth reading.
