Change America could believe in had arrived.

Hailed as the most promising political figure in a generation, Barack Obama rode the emotion of the words, Yes, We Can, into the Oval Office. America's first black President. He was the undisputed winner in a historic election. A man poised to usher America into a new era.

After eight years as leader of the free world, did his promise match the reality?

• Is America better off?
• Did the country move into a new era?
• Were the lives of his most ardent supporters, African-Americans, better under "their" President?

In this insightful review of the Obama Era, African-American writer, Kiara Ashanti delves into the Obama Presidency to answer those questions. Written from the point of view of a black man, Ashanti details the policy mis-hits, economic mistakes, and partisan insistence that crippled the country's first black President. A focused and pointed read, Commander-in-Failure, zeroes in on the end results of Obama's decisions, not the rhetoric. It conveys the frustrations of a fellow African-American, as he watched the promises made to America and blacks never materialize.

How did "Yes, We Can" turn into "No, We Didn't?"

Easy to read and laser targeted on the top issues, Commander, explains what went wrong, why, and how the failures of America's first black President, possibly lead to the country's most polarizing President; Donald J. Trump.
