Barack Obama Releases Highly Anticipated Memoir “A Promised Land”

Former President Barack Obama released a new book “A Promised Land” today to much fanfare. The book is a 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.

A Promised Land comes at a time when America is deeply divided among party lines, race, and the COVID-19 pandemic. The book is shaping up to be one of the top-selling political memoirs of all time.

Due to the spread of the Corona virus, Obama will not hold any large live events to promote the book. Instead, he will rely on reaching readers through his large social media following — he has more than 125 million Twitter followers, and around 90 million followers on Facebook and Instagram combined — and interviews with traditional outlets like “60 Minutes,” “CBS Sunday Morning,” Oprah Winfrey’s Apple TV show and The Atlantic magazine, as well as on podcasts and youth-focused media outlets. He may also hold some live virtual events.

The former president made it well known he loved music and had a habit sharing his playlist during his tenure or major event. In a tweet Obama shared some memorable songs from his administration.

You can purchase Barack Obama’s new book at any major book outlet or online.
