"More novel than short story, more ballad than poem -- writers agree that restraint and plain speaking were the qualities that distinguished President Obama's inaugural address. Long on plot (and it will thicken), it did what literature does best: the backward glance, the standing on shoulders, the salute to ancestors and other sources of wisdom." -- LA Times, January 21, 2009
Obama has been greatly influenced by the words of Abraham Lincoln and Ralph Waldo Emerson, who have helped shaped his political thinking and philosophy. This collection includes their most memorable and influential speeches and essays along with Obama's historic inaugural address:
* Inaugural Address of Barack Obama, 2009
* Second Inaugural Address of Abraham Lincoln, 1865
* The Gettysburg Address of Abraham Lincoln, 1863
* First Inaugural Address of Abraham Lincoln, 1861
* Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson, including "Self-Reliance"
The BeamItDown Book Collections use a very different approach to reading that is absolutely ideal for the screen of the iPhone and iPod Touch. Other reader applications display the text of the book you are reading in individual pages. The number of words that can be displayed on the screen at one time is determined by the size of the font used. This forces you to choose between reading with a very small font size or using a large font and changing pages every few seconds. The problem is that reading with a very small font induces eye strain, while frequent paging disrupts concentration.
The BeamItDown iFlow Reader solves this problem by using an entirely new approach to reading. Instead of paging, the BeamItDown iFlow Reader scrolls text much like a teleprompter. Large, easy to read text scrolls by smoothly as you read. The precise scrolling speed is controlled by subtly tilting the device, which quickly becomes very intuitive and natural. You can personalize your reading experience by selecting the paper color, text color, text size, and the font that you prefer to create a truly enjoyable reading experience.
