“I’ve spent the last few years reflecting on my presidency, and in ‘A Promised Land’ I’ve tried to provide an honest accounting of my presidential campaign and my time in office: the key events and people who shaped it; my take on what I got right and the mistakes I made; and the political, economic, and cultural forces that my team and I had to confront then — and that as a nation we are grappling with still.”

The memoir will give the reader a glimpse of the  personal journey that he and his wife, Michelle Obama, went through while in their stations as President and First Lady respectively. The book will be distributed by a division of Penguin Random House and a second volume hasn’t been determine as of yet.
