About the Author

Joe Biden is the 46th President of the United States. Before taking office, he represented Delaware for 36 years in the U.S. Senate and from 2009-2017 served as the 47th Vice President of the United States. As Vice President Biden fought to raise the living standards of middle class Americans, reduce gun violence, address violence against women, and end cancer as we know it. He has worked to expand opportunity for all with the creation of the Biden Foundation, the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania, and the Biden Domestic Policy Institute at the University of Delaware. He is the author of Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics and Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose.

Reviews

"The book is a backstage drama, honest, raw and rich in detail. People who have lost someone will genuinely take comfort from what he has to say...These flashes of vulnerability are part of what makes Promise Me, Dad memorable; so, too, are the small, tender interactions between Biden and his dying son."
-- The New York Times

"Biden splices a heartbreaking story with an election story and a foreign affairs story. And in so doing, he offers something for everyone, no matter which strand draws you in."
-- The New York Times Book Review

"Biden exudes humanity throughout the book. He lays bare his emotions and vulnerabilities at losing a son with so much promise."
