Book Overview
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - President-elect Joe Biden, the author of Promise Me, Dad, tells the story of his extraordinary life and career prior to his emergence as Barack Obama's beloved, influential vice president. I remain captivated by the possibilities of politics and public service. In fact, I believe that my chosen profession is a noble calling.--Joe Biden Joe Biden has both witnessed and participated in a momentous epoch of American history. In Promises to Keep, Joe Biden reveals what these experiences taught him about himself, his colleagues, and the institutions of government. With his customary candor and wit, Biden movingly recounts growing up in a staunchly Catholic multigenerational household in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware; overcoming personal tragedy, life-threatening illness, and career setbacks; his relationships with presidents, with world leaders, and with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle; and his leadership of powerful Senate committees. Through these and other recollections, Biden shows us how the guiding principles he learned early in life--to work to make people's lives better; to honor family and faith; to value persistence, candor, and honesty--are the foundation on which he has based his life's work as husband, father, and public servant. Promises to Keep is an intimate series of reflections from a public servant who surmounted numerous challenges to become one of our most effective leaders and who refuses to be cynical about politics. It is also a stirring testament to the promise of the United States. Praise for Promises to Keep A ripping good read . . . Biden is a master storyteller and has stories worth telling. -- The Christian Science Monitor A compelling personal story. -- The New York Times Moving . . . Biden's] response to tragedy and near death is] both admirable and likable. --Salon
