    Golly, so short! I’m not sure I learned anything new, but this brief book might be a good Biden intro for others. Glad this was a freebie via my Kindle Unlimited membership.

Being an African American mysrlf I appreciated what the largely white Undecided voters decided. He was chosen because despite his checkered past with black folks we knew who be was. Personally I personally believed he was the only one to beat Trump I decided that I would throw out the Crime Bill. I have a new respect for Uncle Joe as we call him and campaigned vigorously for him in PA.

    A bit of a fluff piece leading up to the election. Pretty superficial and lacking any real depth; I got the feeling that anything mentioned to present an appearance of a balanced view, was more along the lines of, “You’re going to hear this stuff anyway, so you’d might as well hear it from here, now”.

    With the upcoming presidential election nearing, I wanted to find out more about this candidate. The information seemed to be fairly non-biased. I enjoyed learning about the former vice president's life, both personal and political, that got him to this point. I would recommend this quick read to anyone with an interest in politics.

    Introduction to Joe Biden A condensed reading on Biden’s life both personal an private. Covering mistakes and successes while starting his career in public life. The book describes some of the difficulties he will face during the 2020 Presidential race. It would be nice if there were more details.

    President Elect Joseph Biden I purchased this book after President Elect Biden accepted his new role as our 46th USA president. I wanted to learn more about his life and how he turned tragedy into his ultimate success in winning the 2020 election. This was an easy read. It was well written and quite informative.

    I didn't realize when I ordered it that this was a very short, simply written biography. It was fine, just probably geared towards maybe middle school kids? Seems sort of like it was written by a computer I didn't realize when I ordered it that this was a very short, simply written biography.

    So short, blink and you'll miss it! This is barely longer than a newspaper article. Misled into thinking it was a proper book. 10 pounds RRP! Unless you want a read that lasts 10 minutes and is shorter than Biden's wiki entry, avoid this and but a book more substantial. So short, blink and you'll miss it!

    As Always Good briefing of the subject. Its also good these books are current. Biden may have been in politics a good long time but I wouldn't read about these subjects, probably, if it weren't for your books. Yours is a valuable collection for me. Thank you!

    This is the sixth book I have read on Joe Biden this year and it is by far the worst one. It is just another run of the mill biography reciting bullet points of Biden’s life and career. The book provides no new revelatory information that makes it memorable. I will say that this book may provide a passable introduction into the life of Joe Biden. This book is definitely hampered by its incredibly short length as it just glosses over important points without providing depth.
