Barack Obama: A Promise Land Memoir
“In his own words, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil. “
Barack Obama is already a bestselling author, with his well-regarded memoir Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, and The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream, both published prior to his presidency.
Obama himself said on Twitter, “There’s no feeling like finishing a book, and I’m proud of this one. In A Promised Land, I try to provide an honest accounting of my presidency, the forces we grapple with as a nation, and how we can heal our divisions and make democracy work for everybody.”
The second volume is set to cover the second term of his Presidency, with a release date yet to be announced.
Get ready for what will no doubt be one of the most talked about books of the year, and set aside a bit of time to get through it, as it clocks in at over 700 pages!
