The Book of Joe: The Life, Wit, and (Sometimes Accidental) Wisdom of Joe Biden by Jeff Wilser
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The last book I read in 2017 but I’ve been sick and unable to post to the blog until 2018! The description of this book was interesting and I’ve been trying to alternate my reading between fiction and non fiction and as a Brit in the USA I basically know nothing about Joe Biden apart from his much meme’d bromance with Obama so I figured this might make an interesting read.
The book is a simple, short biography of Biden that focus’s on tips of wisdom from Biden along with the stories behind them. Covering a lot of episodes from being a kid through to life after the election, the reader is taken through several key moments in his life, along with a challenge to apply these tips to our lives.
Thankfully the book doesn’t get too political so is suitable for all to read – treat it as a biography rather than a political memoir.
The author is obviously a huge, huge fan of Biden and if Biden’s bromance with Obama never worked out, I think Jeff would be waiting in the wings!
Thanks to Blogging for Books for the review copy of this book and the opportunity to read a funny, inspiring book about a politician (not something I would ever expect to say!)
