    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    This is the inspiring story of how Joe Biden channels the grief over losing his son, Beau, into a successful campaign for the 2016 Democratic nomination. Propelled by a promise he made to his late son to continue his path of public service, and boosted by his extraordinary accomplishme...

    Reading Joe Biden?s Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose I was reminded again how great it was to have Biden-as thoughtful, compassionate, and smart as anyone you are likely to meet --as our 45th President. I mean, wow, we really dodged a bullet there. Just think; t...

    Joe Biden was into his second term as vice-president of the United States when his son Beau was diagnosed with a brain tumor. As the Biden family was gathering together in Nantucket for Thanksgiving, it was to be their last with Beau but they did not know this yet. Amid national and in...

    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...

    An intense, moving memoir by a thoughtful, inspiring man. I probably picked the wrong week to read it, given that Sen. John McCain died of the same brain cancer this week that killed Beau Biden. (Full disclosure: I lost my father to this same brain cancer in 1982. How I hate this d...

    This review and others can be found on BW Book Reviews. To me, this book was an explanation. Perhaps an apology, but mainly an explanation about why he chose not to run. And, I don't have much to say about this book. It's incredibly well-written and insanely moving. Between bouncing...

    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 ...

    Joe Biden is one of my favorite people in the world. Period. He is REAL and honest and CARES. I teared up anytime he wrote about his son?s last days or his late wife and daughter?s death. To have been through SO MUCH and still have strength of character and faith is so admirable to...

    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. ...

    Really was curious about this book. It was so heartfelt and genuine. I definitely recommend! ...

    This was an emotional read. A personal look at love, family, loss and grief. I?ve always respected Joe Biden and his core beliefs. Losing a child, I don?t know of anything worse. ...

    OK, I give props to Biden for honesty with regards to his family. Writing is mostly alright. Nothing special but adequate. ...

    I enjoyed reading this book. Although the focus is on the Biden family and how it reacted to the illness and death of Beau Biden, Vice President Biden tells the story in context of his public life as Vice President. The Biden family's committment to excellence, the bedrock of faith th...

    I don't follow politics closely. Based on the title, I was expecting more personal stories rather than a recount of Biden's time in office. I also thought that he would address his son Hunter's relationship with Beau's widow. Overall, it was boring and self indulgent. However, the refl...

    I love this book it really help me understand Joe Biden better than I had before. The timeline of events and the way the book was written flowed very well. The book did not wander or meander and stayed very personal. ...

    Full of heartbreak and full of hope, the former Vice President's book on his son's last year is incredible. You'll probably cry, but you'll also be inspired. ...

    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...

    An intense, moving memoir by a thoughtful, inspiring man. I probably picked the wrong week to read it, given that Sen. John McCain died of the same brain cancer this week that killed Beau Biden. (Full disclosure: I lost my father to this same brain cancer in 1982. How I hate this d...

    This review and others can be found on BW Book Reviews. To me, this book was an explanation. Perhaps an apology, but mainly an explanation about why he chose not to run. And, I don't have much to say about this book. It's incredibly well-written and insanely moving. Between bouncing...

    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 ...

    Joe Biden is one of my favorite people in the world. Period. He is REAL and honest and CARES. I teared up anytime he wrote about his son?s last days or his late wife and daughter?s death. To have been through SO MUCH and still have strength of character and faith is so admirable to...

    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. ...

    Really was curious about this book. It was so heartfelt and genuine. I definitely recommend! ...

    This was an emotional read. A personal look at love, family, loss and grief. I?ve always respected Joe Biden and his core beliefs. Losing a child, I don?t know of anything worse. ...

    OK, I give props to Biden for honesty with regards to his family. Writing is mostly alright. Nothing special but adequate. ...

    I love this book it really help me understand Joe Biden better than I had before. The timeline of events and the way the book was written flowed very well. The book did not wander or meander and stayed very personal. ...

    Full of heartbreak and full of hope, the former Vice President's book on his son's last year is incredible. You'll probably cry, but you'll also be inspired. ...

    Joe Biden?s New Book to Be Released in November 2017 ...

    This book was excellent and absolutely gut wrenching even though I knew what was going to happen. I definitely cried while reading this. I especially found the parts about Beau?s brother, Hunter to be so extremely sad. ...

    Heartbreaking yet hopeful on multiple levels. The former Vice President is someone the public has come to know as a man of authenticity and conviction, both of which resonate throughout this book. It is a memoir of his last year in office that coincided with his son Beau's illness and ...

    I liked this listen in to Joe Biden and his experience of being Vice President and dealing with the illness and death of his beloved son. I really love being inspired by people with strong values, and living out those values and deep love of family. So while not being from the USA I st...

    This memoir is a deep dive into heartache, family, and politics. Strange bedfellows, to be sure. But Joe Biden has a fierce dedication to family and country. For every chapter about the rigors of the Vice Presidency (Joe logged a million air miles in eight years), there are two about h...

    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...

    This is the inspiring story of how Joe Biden channels the grief over losing his son, Beau, into a successful campaign for the 2016 Democratic nomination. Propelled by a promise he made to his late son to continue his path of public service, and boosted by his extraordinary accomplishme...

    Reading Joe Biden?s Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose I was reminded again how great it was to have Biden-as thoughtful, compassionate, and smart as anyone you are likely to meet --as our 45th President. I mean, wow, we really dodged a bullet there. Just think; t...

    Joe Biden was into his second term as vice-president of the United States when his son Beau was diagnosed with a brain tumor. As the Biden family was gathering together in Nantucket for Thanksgiving, it was to be their last with Beau but they did not know this yet. Amid national and in...

    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...

    An intense, moving memoir by a thoughtful, inspiring man. I probably picked the wrong week to read it, given that Sen. John McCain died of the same brain cancer this week that killed Beau Biden. (Full disclosure: I lost my father to this same brain cancer in 1982. How I hate this d...

    This review and others can be found on BW Book Reviews. To me, this book was an explanation. Perhaps an apology, but mainly an explanation about why he chose not to run. And, I don't have much to say about this book. It's incredibly well-written and insanely moving. Between bouncing...

    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 ...

    Joe Biden is one of my favorite people in the world. Period. He is REAL and honest and CARES. I teared up anytime he wrote about his son?s last days or his late wife and daughter?s death. To have been through SO MUCH and still have strength of character and faith is so admirable to...

    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. ...

    Really was curious about this book. It was so heartfelt and genuine. I definitely recommend! ...

    This was an emotional read. A personal look at love, family, loss and grief. I?ve always respected Joe Biden and his core beliefs. Losing a child, I don?t know of anything worse. ...

    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. ...

    Really was curious about this book. It was so heartfelt and genuine. I definitely recommend! ...

    This was an emotional read. A personal look at love, family, loss and grief. I?ve always respected Joe Biden and his core beliefs. Losing a child, I don?t know of anything worse. ...

    OK, I give props to Biden for honesty with regards to his family. Writing is mostly alright. Nothing special but adequate. ...

    I enjoyed reading this book. Although the focus is on the Biden family and how it reacted to the illness and death of Beau Biden, Vice President Biden tells the story in context of his public life as Vice President. The Biden family's committment to excellence, the bedrock of faith th...

    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 ...
