First Few Pages From Maraniss Bio Of Obama

David Maraniss offers Washington Post readers some first pages from his bio-in-progress of Barack Obama.

Two things to note here.

First is the wonderful, flowing prose and finely-reported stories we have come to enjoy from Maraniss.

Second is the wisdom of The Post: as newspapers struggle for readers and identities and a role in the Internet era, The Post encourages its reporters to go out and write books.

The paper wins along with the reporter and the public.
