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

«Gorgeously written, humorous, compelling, life affirming»

, Mail on Sunday

«Beautifully written and disarmingly candid . . . leavened with telling asides, poignant vignettes, painterly character sketches and an occasional corker of a joke»

, The Sunday Times

«As a work of political literature A Promised Land is impressive. Obama is a gifted writer»

, Guardian

«Barack Obama is as fine a writer as they come . . . the prose gorgeous in places, the detail granular and vivid»

, The New York Times

«What is unexpected in A Promised Land is not its literary elegance but the former president's candour»

, 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»

, i

«Gives a very human insight into the White House»

Stylist

«To keep company with his elegant prose, complex conscience and unmistakable intelligence is a cool drink of water after four years of the other guy . . .»

, Spectator

«Elegantly written ... Obama comes across as literary, tolerant and dignified. A gifted writer, he maintains the reader's interest for over 700 pages»

, TLS

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

Daily Express

«His ability to put himself in the shoes of others - even those who treat him with open contempt - is admirable»

«Honest, powerful and personal...a must read»
