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

«I loved A Promised Land . . . President Obama is unusually honest about his experience in the White House, including how isolating it is to be the person who ultimately calls the shots. It's a fascinating look at what it's like to steer a country through challenging times»

«Deeply enjoyable . . . Obama is such a fluent and warm writer and so good at describing events and people»

Daily Express

«Beautifully written . . . it's probably the best volume of autobiography from a former president in modern times»

«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»
