Despite the Radical Times, "Promise Me, Dad" is the One Must-Read Book from a Politician in 2017 - Deals With Cancer Honestly
November 14, 2017
I'm writing this review while reading and listening to Chapter 3.
Unlike most books by politicians, "Promise Me, Dad," is more committed to communicating to us the values and principles of a family man who happens to have been a politician. That, however, is not what compelled me to start this review before evern getting through Chapter 3.
Chapter 2 was simply the most compelling narration regarding the hopes, fears, dreams and nightmares through which a family succumbs while dealing with cancer. The brief, yet detailed explanation of the surgery performed on Beau Biden goes along way to showing us this is not just another political narrative.
I bought both the Kindle and the Audible version. I greatly enjoy reading along while a narrator reads the book. Much as I did as a child at home listening to Mom, or a student in school listening to the teacher. With VP Joe Biden, not himself a professional voice actor, reading this highly personal account, this is possibly the most important read of 2017.
That does not mean, as yet, that I am sold on Joe Biden for President. Only time will reveal to us if he even should run. Until recently, though, I was certain he should not run, so, who knows, I may come around to becoming one of his staunchest supporters, outside of his nuclear family.
BLUSH FACTOR There is, essentially, no cussing and no vulgarities in this tome. Share it with your friends and family in all walks of life, regardless of ages, sex, or religious affiliation.
Five stars, but, if I had them to give, I'd rate it 10 stars.
