A Promised Land by Barack Obama ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It’s lengthy, it’s full of incredible details. It’s 100% worth the read. It reminds me that I had wanted to read more presidential biographies and autobiographies.

The 44th president has a charm, a wit, and an ability to convey a story on a personal level. Throughout this memoir, Obama shares his perspective on his career and quick rise in politics. He acknowledges the price paid by his daughters and Michelle without becoming too melancholic.

I was reminded of my interest and hope in helping create a modernized and more equal and accepting country. I was reminded of the deeply troubling lies that surrounded this man his entire tenure and are still being told and created today.

Being in the public eye and moreover, in politics, gives one power and it is Obama’s reverence and response to this power that makes me still admire him today. There is no perfect president. There is no one perfect response to the daily trials of the office.
