A Promised Land
In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world.
Reflecting on the presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy. Obama brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room. We are privy to his thoughts as he assembles his cabinet, wrestles with a global financial crisis, overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to secure passage of the Affordable Care Act, tackles Wall Street reform, and authorizes Operation Neptune's Spear, which leads to the death of Osama bin Laden.
