    I absolutely love Joe Biden.In 2015 I donated money to a SuperPac that was trying to convince Joe to run for President. I truly believe that had he run he would have beat both Hillary and 45.

    5 stars! “I try to be mindful, at all times, of what a difference a small human gesture can make to people in need. What does it really cost to take a moment to look someone in the eye, to give him a hug, to let her know, I get it. You’re not alone?” Joe Biden is one of those peopl...

    At a time when many politicians climb onto soap boxes and publish pieces to extol their own greatness, former Vice-President Joe Biden released this short book that seeks to rise above the fray and offer a story of hope, despair, and personal reflection. It is perhaps the first book I have read wher...

    Reading Joe Biden’s Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose I was reminded again how great it was to have Biden-as thoughtful, compassionate, and smart as anyone you are likely to meet --as our 45th President. I mean, wow, we really dodged a bullet there. Just think; the current ...

    Reading this extraordinary memoir was so beautifully written- unsentimental-but very sad - and searingly honest....I regret not having read it sooner. The most poignant sections of this book for me were the family relationships and the intricacies of Beau’s disease, glioblastoma, ....the most a...
