Sometimes when history is being made, we are so caught up in the moment that we don’t take the time to keep a record of what’s going on around us…that is soooo not the case with our very own Roland Martin. Roland Martin does it all – radio, television, print. In each of these media, Roland has captured what is surely the most historic period of our time-the presidential campaign of Barack Obama.

“The First: President Barack Obama’s Road to the White House,” is as thorough a catalogue of this campaign as one will ever find – all through the eyes and words of award-winning journalist, Roland Martin. “The First, “is a marriage of Roland’s many jobs – columnist, blogger on, television and radio commentator. There are also the observations of noted celebrities who played a part in this once-in-a-lifetime campaign. As an added bonus, “The First” includes a dvd of Martin’s historic one-on-one interviews with the first couple, President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama.

This book is an embarrassment of riches. There ‘s so much to offer in “The first, “ one might not know where to start, but trust, with an almost 2 year ramp up to the presidential election, it’s best to start at the beginning and relive, savor even, this incredible time of our lives.

“The First” is a perfect gift for the upcoming holiday season, a heavy duty addition under the Kwanzaa Tree. No exaggeration – Rolands’ book is almost 400 pages. This is no Reader’s Digest version of the Obama ’08 campaign, but it’s worth every page in memories, good writing and historical value.
