Product description

About the Author

Barack Obama was the 44th president of the United States, elected in November 2008 and holding office for two terms. He is the author of two previous New York Times bestselling books, Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope, and the recipient of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. He lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife, Michelle. They have two daughters, Malia and Sasha. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Review

Barack Obama is as fine a writer as they come. It is not merely that this book avoids being ponderous, as might be expected, even forgiven, of a hefty memoir, but that it is nearly always pleasurable to read, sentence by sentence, the prose gorgeous in places, the detail granular and vivid...Barack Obama has...illuminated a pivotal moment in American history -- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie ― The New York Times

Deeply introspective and at times elegiac... [it] isn't the usual post-presidential legacy-burnishing project. There is a literary grandness... and dramatic renderings of moments high and low captured in sometimes Sorkin-esque dialogue...The narrative puts the reader in the room at defining moments -- Eli Stokols ― LA Times

701 pages of elegantly written narrative, contemplation and introspection, in which he frequently burrows down into his own motivations... A Promised Land delivers amply on the basic expectations of political autobiographies, providing a granular view from the driving seat of power. There are also the gratifying details observed in moments of historic import -- Julian Borger ― The Guardian

A supremely intelligent, accomplished man . . . Obama emerges as kind to his staff, devoted to his children and absolutely in love with his wife -- Tim Stanley ― The Telegraph

A classy book and not just one for insiders...[Obama] reminds us what it was like having a sense of magnanimity and modest statesmanship in the White House. Welcome home, decency -- James Hanning ― inews.co.uk

Obama's is a beautifully written memoir...and covers his childhood through to the assassination of Osama bin Laden in 2011, which is written up like a thriller...it's probably the best volume of autobiography from a former president in modern times. As a reminder of a face of America it is invaluable -- Sean O'Grady ― Independent, ***** --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent Quality Book
By George on 18 November 2020
Do note that this is part 1 of a two part series. Part 1 concludes with the death of Osama Bin Laden. Part 2 isn't released

I am not going to comment on the content since that would be subjective and I haven't gotten around to reading it.

Font and paper quality is good. Book is quite thick.
