The Book of Joe: The Life, Wit, and (Sometimes Accidental) Wisdom of Joe Biden Read Online Free - The ultimate guide to America's favorite vice president, filled with all of the key moments, all of the lessons, and none of the malarkey.
The aviators. The Amtrak. The ice cream cones. The memes. Few politicians are as iconic, or as beloved, as Joe Biden. Now, in The Book of Joe, Biden fans will finally have the definitive look at America's favorite vice president--and what he can teach us.
Structured around key moments in Biden's life and career--and filled with Biden-isms like "That's a bunch of malarkey" and "I may be Irish, but I'm not stupid"--this blend of biography, advice, and humor will reveal the experiences that forged Joe Biden, and the lessons we can use in our own lives. Along the way, readers will also encounter fun sidebars on his love of muscle cars, his most endearing gaffes, his bromance with President Obama, and much more.
Yet beneath the memorable Biden-isms, the book will reveal an inspirational story of a man who keeps "getting back up." We need this right now. Much as Biden has come back from both professional missteps and personal heartbreaks, sometimes we all have to get back up and fight. Given Biden's reputation as a decent, plainspoken, patriotic statesman of integrity, this entertaining and practical book will be both a celebration of great political figure and an essential guide to creating the America he believes in so dearly.

I love Joe Biden. Love him or not this is a delightful look at a pretty amazing man. To me, in this time of political craziness it is salve to my weary heart to know that there are still really good people out there who happen to be politicians. Each chapter tells the reader a bit more about his...

Jeff Wilser is admittedly a long time fan of Joe Biden, and his appreciation shows in The Book of Joe. I had a lot of fun reading the stories of Joe's gaffs and greatness of heart.
Wilser succinctly covers Biden's career and contributions in an agreeable and accessible presentation. He extrapo...

I'm not sure I can say enough great things about this book. It offers such an intimate yet relatable portrait of a man we've come to love, Joe,Biden. The things Joe has been through give him my utmost respect. I had no idea about his first wife and the tradegy that befell him and his family befor...

A great book about Joe Biden. To quote Biden "A good life at its core is about being personal. It's about being engaged. It's about being there for a friend or a colleague when they're injured or in an accident, remembering the birthdays, congratulating them on their marriage, celebrating the bir...

Yet another book that I've read lately which makes me supremely angry that Donald Trump is president. Who doesn't love Amtrak Joe? This was a brief (177 pages of actual content) biography of the man and the legend that is Joe Biden.
If he had run in 2016 he would have handily beaten both of his ch...

Disclaimer: this is not the sort of Joe I often am associated with. There is no "cuppa" before it.
For many, Joe Biden became a name well known when he became the 47th Vice President of the United States. Even though I'm not from Delaware, I've known of Biden for a long time prior to the Obama yea...

I love this genre of "pop memoirs"! Fact-based books that also make you chuckle ... biographies that feel relatable ... memoirs that are written with wit. Alexander Hamilton's Guide to Life, also by Jeff Wilser, was a delight in all of these ways. The Book of Joe delivers the same winning combina...

I went into this book knowing very little about Joe Biden. Aside from him being the VP to Obama, and him being very popular amongst millennials, there wasn't much more. This book is a very condensed version of Joe's life. It shows how much he has given to public service, and how he continues to d...

In The Book of Joe, Jeff Wilser introduces readers to the complex life, wit, and wisdom of Joe Biden. This isn’t an autobiography, and it’s not a replacement for Biden’s own bestselling memoir, Promises to Keep. It’s a lighthearted, quick, yet still surprisingly poignant guide to the man America...
