    5 stars! ?I try to be mindful, at all times, of what a difference a small human gesture can make to people in need. What does it really cost to take a moment to look someone in the eye, to give him a hug, to let her know, I get it. You?re not alone?? Joe Biden is one of ...

    Promise Me, Dad A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose By: Joe Biden Narrated by: Joe Biden This is a book I really liked and it moved me emotionally. I have to admit, I have always liked Joe Biden. He says what he thinks and to hell with it. He has a good moral background. America,...

    I absolutely love Joe Biden. In 2015 I donated money to a SuperPac that was trying to convince Joe to run for President. I truly believe that had he run he would have beat both Hillary and 45. Just think about how different our country would be right now. No Congressional investigat...

    At a time when many politicians climb onto soap boxes and publish pieces to extol their own greatness, former Vice-President Joe Biden released this short book that seeks to rise above the fray and offer a story of hope, despair, and personal reflection. It is perhaps the first book I ...

    Disappointing. I hesitated to give this a 3 star rating, feeling it's more 2 - 2.5. Let me preface my review by saying in no way does my opinion on this book reflect my political leanings. I happen to like Joe Biden. I thought he was a great VP. I have the utmost respect for him, f...

    The memoir by Joe Biden covers his last year as vice president and the tragedy of his son?s death His son, Beau, was the Attorney General of Delaware and was planning on running for governor of Delaware when he was diagnosed with brain cancer. This is not Joe Biden?s first family t...

    I am not putting this down because it?s not a good book. I was and am interested in it. But I think I need to try later. My uncle passed away from the same type of cancer as Joe?s son. Around the same time too. It?s just a little much right now. ...

    PLEASE RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020!!!!!!! That aside --- I enjoyed this book, although he neatly and tidily left out what is going on with Beau's widow and his other son, Hunter. (he had time as he mentions at the end of the book that it is the summer of 2017 as he finishes said book ...

    I can relate to this book, as my sister passed away from the same glio cancer that Beau had. I can definitely relate to Joe Biden's description of the feelings when they heard the dreaded glio diagnosis to some of the struggles that he went through watching this happen. One thing that ...
