Product description

Review

I really liked [it]. It was fascinating to read about times when he struggled with self-doubt and how he dealt with it. He's honest about where he might have done things differently with the benefit of hindsight. It had a level of candor and self-reflection that isn't all that common among leaders -- Bill Gates

Gorgeously written, humorous, compelling, life affirming -- Justin Webb ― Mail on Sunday

Beautifully written and disarmingly candid . . . leavened with telling asides, poignant vignettes, painterly character sketches and an occasional corker of a joke -- Tony Allen-Mills ― The Sunday Times

As a work of political literature A Promised Land is impressive. Obama is a gifted writer -- Gary Younge ― Guardian

Barack Obama is as fine a writer as they come . . . the prose gorgeous in places, the detail granular and vivid -- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie ― The New York Times

What is unexpected in A Promised Land is not its literary elegance but the former president's candour -- David Olusoga ― Observer

Deeply enjoyable . . . Obama is such a fluent and warm writer and so good at describing events and peopleDaily Express

Beautifully written . . . it's probably the best volume of autobiography from a former president in modern times -- Sean O'Grady ― Independent, *****

Remarkably candid and beautifully written . . . It should bring inspiration for we Brits who want to build our own version of inclusive patriotism here at home -- David Lammy ― i

Gives a very human insight into the White HouseStylist

Book Description

A riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making-from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy
