Since its release, "Dreams From My Father" has earned high critical praise. The autobiography has been translated into more than 25 languages, including Chinese and Hebrew. In 2006, an audio version narrated by Obama won a Grammy Award for best spoken word album. The book has also been adapted into a children's version. A second printing of the book was released in 2004.
