A Promised Land by Barack Obama

A Promised Land is a riveting, deeply personal account of the challenges involved in carrying the weight of history as the first Black President of the US.

Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, and through the landmark moments of his first term, from legalizing gay marriage to the killing of Osama Bin laden.   

The book takes us right inside the White House to give intimate glimpses into what it was like for an ordinary, young family to live in the most famous house in the world. 

Above all, the book is a call to action for the next generation of leaders. 

“I hope more than anything that the book inspires young people across the country—and around the globe—to take up the baton, lift up their voices, and play their part in remaking the world for the better.” 

A Promised Land, Volume One of Barack Obama’s deeply personal presidential memoir, is available now from Waterstones and
