The delivery was prompt but the quality of the book wasn’t 100%. The outer jacket had some creases and the binding had some minor creases and dents (similar to one of the other reviews posted earlier). Fortunately these issues were limited to the outer jacket and the cover alone, the pages and were okay and there wasn’t anything amiss about them. Still for the price of $36, you’d still expect better/perfect quality.
The book itself was excellent. The eloquent and narrative style of writing takes the reader on a journey through the first term of the presidency. It was a delightful experience reading this book.

"Barack Obama is as fine a writer as they come. . . . [A Promised Land] is nearly always pleasurable to read, sentence by sentence, the prose gorgeous in places, the detail granular and vivid. . . . The story will continue in the second volume, but Barack Obama has already illuminated a pivotal moment in American history, and how America changed while also remaining unchanged."--Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, The New York Times Book Review

Finished listening to the audible version. Awesome. His ability to weigh both side of the views , candid admission on the compromises , feeling of helplessness due to the complex political machinery leaves us with a rolls coaster of emotions. Now reading the book

This mans grasp on the truth is as tenious as his "peace" deal with Iran. A clever and dangerous leader who made the world less safe, more conflicted and above all, more censored than a North Korean newspaper. Take this nonsense off my suggested items list.
