Barrack Obama's "A Promised Land "

Not that we will forget former President Barrack Obama’s Presidency in the United States of America, however, the beloved leader is refreshing our memory with his Memoir, “A Promise Land”

The memoir, which is expected to be promised immediately after the November Election by Penguin Random House, is the first of the volume of the Obama Presidency. 

The announcement was made by the former President via is social media pages. The first volume “A Promised Land”, will be issued simultaneously, globally, in 25 languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Czech, Finnish and Vietnamese.

“There’s no feeling like finishing a book, and I’m proud of this one,” Obama said in a statement on Instagram. “I’ve spent the last few years reflecting on my presidency, and in ‘A Promised Land’ I’ve tried to provide an honest accounting of my presidential campaign and my time in office: the key events and people who shaped it, my take on what I got right and the mistakes I made, and the political, economic, and cultural forces that my team and I had to confront then — and that as a nation we are grappling with still.”

According to Obama, the book will give readers an insight into the period of his and Michelle’s journey in the White House. He also reminisced on how his government worked to make America what it is today. He offers his opinion on what can help heal the country’s divisions and hopes the book will inspire young people to “play their part in remaking the world for the better.”

Here’s a brief description of the book:

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, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.

Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation’s highest office.

A Promised Land” will be published in hardcover and digital formats, and an unabridged audio edition of the book, read by President Obama himself, will be simultaneously released in digital and physical formats by Penguin Random House Audio.
