Publisher's Summary

Disclaimer: This is not the original book.
A story about endurance, family, love and grief. Joe Biden’s toughest year of his life recorded in a fantastic memoir. 
Promise Me, Dad portrays Biden’s struggle as a man trying his best to keep up with the overwhelmingly busy task of being the vice president of the United States while also attending to his responsibilities as a family man after the loss of his son. A memoir written by the man himself to find hope and purpose after losing his beloved son and which can be summarized in three adjectives: touching, heart-wrenching, and beautiful.
Note: This summary is wholly written and published by readtrepreneur.com. It is not affiliated with Joe Biden in any way.
“If the problem is fear, the answer is knowledge.” (Joe Biden)
Joe Biden couldn’t have endured alone all of the hardships he had to face in that year; the memoir is about how strength can be the bonds formed by family and friends and how they can help you move forward even in the most dire times.
Joe Biden’s inspiring story can teach us plenty about how work overwhelms us to the point that we forget about our personal bonds.
P.S. Promise Me, Dad is an extremely touching story about a man trying to keep his world from falling apart when facing the death of his son and his overwhelming schedule.
Disclaimer once again: This book is meant for great companionship of the original book or to simply get the gist of the original book.

Must listen to this book

Well narrated, the subject matter is clearly complex but I fully understand all of it (I’m being generous to myself there) it’s about the best balance I could have hoped for on such a mind-blowing set of chapters. I need a lie-down.

Thanks to the author

I've been listening to my book on Audible and have to pause at times to take notes, then replay it to make sure I absorb the information again. It's just that good.
