Barrack Obama’s Presidential memories likely to release on Nov 17


NEW YORK: Former President Barack Obama announced Thursday the release of the first volume of his presidential memoirs recount his first term in the White House and address how he thinks the nation can “heal our divisions.”

The book, titled “A Promised Land,” is scheduled for release on Nov. 17 and will cover Obama’s “improbable odyssey from a young man searching for his identity to the leader of the free world” and “landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency,” according to a press release from the book’s publisher, Crown.

“There’s no feeling like finishing a book, and I’m proud of this one,” Obama tweeted Thursday morning. “In A Promised Land, I try to provide an honest accounting of my presidency, the forces we grapple with as a nation, and how we can heal our divisions and make democracy work for everybody.”

“In the book, I’ve also tried to give readers a sense of the personal journey that Michelle and I went through during those years, with all the incredible highs and lows. And finally, at a time when America is going through such enormous upheaval, the book offers some of my broader thoughts on how we can heal the divisions in our country going forward and make our democracy work for everybody — a task that won’t depend on any single president, but on all of us as engaged citizens,” Obama said in a press release through Crown.

“Along with being a fun and informative read, 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,” he added.

The print edition of “A Promised Land” will be simultaneously issued in 25 languages with the English-language edition coming in at 768-pages with two 16-page photographic inserts. It’s suggested list price is $45 in the U.S.
