Promise Me, Dad by Joe Biden

Screen Shot 2019-03-30 at 7.14.15 PMIn this memoir-esque book by former U.S. vice president Joe Biden, Promise Me, Dad mostly revolves around details of Biden’s second term as vice president. Pieces of his earlier experiences and previous political movements are woven through his the story of his vice presidency and his struggle to determine if he should enter the 2016 presidential race. Whilst all of these major professional decisions are being made, Biden is also dealing with the failing health of his eldest son, Beau, which strongly influences which direction Biden chooses to pursue. Throughout the book, Biden sprinkles in many family-held truths of what makes you a good person and how the family depends on and lifts each other up. It left me yearning for the opportunity to have grown close to and been influenced by a family like the Bidens during my early years.
