(CNN)—Campaign advertisements, campaign stops, how about campaign books?
Crown Publishers, a division of Random House, will publish Barack Obama’s third book September 9 aimed at highlighting the Illinois senator’s plans to re-vamp Washington politics
“Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama’s Plan to Renew America’s Promise,” will include a foreword written by the presumptive Democratic nominee where he will detail his policy stances and the importance of this election. Members of Obama’s campaign staff also penned chapters detailing the Illinois senators proposals on healthcare, energy, and national security, according to the Associated Press
The book, which will be released in an audio and e-book version on September 8, will also feature a compilation of seven speeches Obama has given throughout the course of his campaign including his address in Berlin and the declaration of his candidacy for president.
Obama’s two previous books, “Audacity of Hope” and “Dreams from My Father” - also published by Crown Publishers - both rose to the top of the bestseller lists with a combined four million-plus copies currently in print.
“We are proud to have published two bestselling books by Barack Obama and are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to work with his campaign on such an important and inspiring book at this critical moment in our country,” said Crown President Jenny Frost in a statement
The terms of the book were agreed upon by Crown President Jenny Frost and Obama’s literary representative Robert B. Barnett of Williams & Connolly. Barnett , who has represented both Obama and Clinton in their book deals, helped to find a middle ground between the two campaign staffs after Clinton dropped out of the presidential race.
ASK US IF WE CARE......OBAMANATION-ON YOU....
uuuuuunnnnnnnnnuuuuENOUGH OF THIS OBAMA ALREADY !!!!
I've bought 4 copies of "The Audacity of Hope" and ended up giving every one of them away. I need to buy another copy and keep it this time. I also will buy a copy of his newest book. He's not only my Presidential candidate of choice, he's now my favorite author too!!

….and people wonder why they call him arrogant."
Writing a book is arrogant?
You Barack people are just too happy.
Remember, this is America, you should be frowning
You have record gas prices
You have record foreclosures
We're still in this endless war
Your food prices are going up, up, up
And college tuition is skyrocketing
Oh, and the oil companies are making gazillions
Don't be so happy
Start frowning right now
Vote for McGrumpy–NOT.

"And people with 3 books out and a comprehensive detailed web-site people will STILL claim they do not know where he stands or who he is.
People LOVE to be Ignorant when it helps them hide their true feelings"
you are a very wise person!!
I don't know, but, somehow, I am getting the feeling Obama is in this whole thing for how rich it can make him,. His every action seems to show this. He wants to live in luxury and figures he has found the way to do it by fooling the public into hero worship and adolation while not actually doing anything to deserve it. At least, McCain served and suffered for his country. What has Obama sacrificed? All you admirers, ask yourself this and be honest with the answers.
"Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
Let us sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again
Altogether shout it now!"
Or they will be in November– if McSame doesn't rain on our parade.
uhhhh, who wrote the book? Obama? I doubt it. If he had taken the time to write a book with all the answers, he wouldn't be afraid to debate, or need cliff notes to speak of anything but the great 'change'. he can't do it people. listen up.
I wonder why CNN left out the part that the net proceeds will go to charity
"Minnesota Voter for Hillary August 11th, 2008 5:21 pm ET
Yes, we know, he can do everything and anything. Blowing Obama's horn at every corner just makes him more and more unlikable. Show some humility."
Yes, Barack Obama...show some humility by not...uhm...appearing in CNN.com stories?
You know what really makes people unlikable? Bitterness.
Get a LIFE Obama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and go visit your buddy Senator EDWARDS.
Excellent . . . timing.
Is that "White-Haired Dude" coming out with a book?
Perfect timing! This is going to separate the literate from the a-literate, i.e. Mccain followers who can read, but choose not to. This means that Barack is going to get lots of dollars. I hope he publishes it in several languages.
It looks like some people comment without reading the article. Obama is writing the forward and his staff is contributing chapters. It doesn't sound like the moves of a greedy man. It sounds like a campaign doing everything it can to let people know what he's all about and where he wants to lead us. It sounds like a good read for those who haven't bothered to to visit his site (which is the responsible thing for an informed voter to do). It also re-enforces those that have done their homework. Read, understand, then complain if you must - at least you'll have some credibility.
Yea... like he's writting it....
Hope it has some good quotes... loved some from his first book.
"Yea... Alcohol, Weed and Blow when you could afford it"
Reminds me more of Vince Neil than a president...
Great to see a candidate that actually can think.
JUGEMENT For PREZ!
As an EDUCATED American with Latino heritage I am proud to support Obama. Not only will I continue to help his campaign financially but will also buy all his books.
When I read the posts of why people are going to vote McCain I wonder where are education system has gone wrong. It boggles the mind to know that there are still many individuals that are
misinformed about Obama. But, what can we expect when these same people voted for Bush twice?
go obama!!!!!!!!!!!!! change thats what we wont. not Mcbush or his stupid plans drill drill drill kill kill kill kill war war war war oil oil oil oil thats Mccains plan four more years!!!!!!!!!
It's funny that you people that think Obama is a socialist think McCain is a conservative as well. What a joke. There is no conservative party. At least Obama will be constructive with our money instead of destroying other countries with unnecessary wars.
Oh my goodness, those nay-sayers-from-the-far-right are at it again! You must be jealous that there is a brilliant, decent man running for president.......... a breath of fresh air from the moron who is president right now!
What's wrong with being eloquent, brilliant? Having people LIKE you?
Sen. Obama has offered us an opportunity to REGAIN RESPECT AROUND THE WORLD. To once again be that 'SHINNING CITY ON A HILL.
The GOP-fear-hate-war-and-division-mongers can't stand it! They must demean, disrespect, destroy........ anyone whom is their polar opposite!
Well, not this time! WE KNOW what the GOP is capable of.
We KNOW what a GOP president who is the image of Bush will do!
You can't lie and destroy your way out of this one. Americans are aware of what the GOP stand for!
WAR........LIES.........DEBT..........LIES........DIVISIVENESS ........LIES......... DISRESPECT OF THE CONSTITUTION.........BIG OIL......... ENRON LOOPHOLE.......... LIES...... WAR
More BS from Nobama and his mindless sheep!! About the only policy he knows is "I'm a gona raise yurall taxes again and again and again and if I don't get it right the first time I'll just keep throwing money at it and then come up with some other BS to cover it up. I know, I'll blame it all on the Republicans or aliens or whatever!"
EXACTLY. I know more about Obama, than I do about myself [lol]. What is this "Who is Obama" stuff?
I wonder how many lies Hussein Nobama will put into this book??
Will there be ones like in his other book where:
His father met his mother 3 years after Nobama was born??? LOL...HUH?????
His uncle liberated Auschwitz??? Another of Nobamas lies.
The only people who believe Nobamas lies are the morons who support him. They are as stupid as scientologist.
Nobama is a congenital liar. Proven fact! Apparently his followers are too gullible to believe anything that doesn't come from their cult leader. Proven fact number two.
When McCain and his many years in Washington, D.C., I think of the blues, and this song:
Stop haunting me now
Can't shake you no how
Just leave me alone
I've got those Monday blues
Straight through Sunday blues
Good morning heartache
Here we go again
Good morning heartache
You're the one
Who knew me when
Might as well get use to
you hanging around
Good morning heartache
...........AND THE $$ 'S ROLL IN ! NO SUPRISE HERE !
GATED COMMUNITY NOT ENOUGH – NEXT STOP ?
THE WHITE HOUSE?
