It is perhaps the first book I have read wher...

    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...

    This is the inspiring story of how Joe Biden channels the grief over losing his son, Beau, into a successful campaign for the 2016 Democratic nomination. Propelled by a promise he made to his late son to continue his path of public service, and boosted by his extraordinary accomplishments as vice-pr...
