More About Promises to Keep by Joe Biden
 
 
 
Overview
The New York Times bestselling memoir of Joe Biden's extraordinary life and career prior to his emergence as Barack Obama's beloved, influential vice president

In Promises to Keep, Joe Biden reveals the experiences that shaped him with his customary candor and charm. He 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 relations, as a United States senator for more than thirty-five years, with fellow 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 legislator.

Promises to Keep is the story of a man who surmounted numerous challenges to become one of our most effective leaders. It is also an intimate series of reflections from a public servant who witnessed and participated in a momentous epoch of American history and refuses to be cynical about political leadership--a stirring testament to the promise of the United States.
