The first volume of former President Barack Obama’s memoir is coming out Nov. 17, two weeks after Election Day.
The book is called “A Promised Land” and will cover his swift and historic rise to the White House and his first term in office.
According to ABC News, Barack Obama’s memoir “A Promised Land” is just the first volume of two presidential memoirs, and in the book, he’ll talk about his time in the White House, and also ways he feels we can heal as a country.
The 768-page book is the most anticipated presidential memoir in memory, as much or more because of the quality of the writing than for any possible revelations.

On the list of celebrity finsta accounts we’d most like to find, President Barack Obama’s name is right up top — just below Beyoncé, but way above Ben Affleck.
“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,” Obama said in a statement Thursday.
“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.”
Although this is not Obama’s first book, this is the first book he’s released since leaving the White House. He will also be recording an audio-book version of the memoir. It has not been determined when Obama’s second and final volume of the presidential memoirs will be released.
As you all know, our Forever First Lady, Michelle Obama dropped her memoir “Becoming” in 2018, and it went on to become a best-seller. Her documentary with the same title released on Netflix earlier this year.
