Joe Biden, former Vice President, wrote Promise Me, Dad about the year leading up to his son Beau's death. I was expecting more about the actual family's dealing with all that was involved with Beau, but the book was, as advertised, about the last year before Beau died. So I felt like most of the book was about Joe Biden's travels, meetings, etc. related to his work. I wanted it to be a book about the family, and that was, of course, included, but I just wasn't interested in all of the other stuff.
The parts about the family dealing with Beau were heart-breaking and, if possible, made me love Joe Biden even more.
