I am a huge fan of Joe Biden and I was really excited to get a chance to read this book by Jeff Wilser. The book is short but it tells the life story of Joe Biden with warmth and humor. The book begins with Joe's childhood and then moves on through the tragedy of losing his wife and child while becoming a Senator, his many accomplishments as a Senator, and of course his time as Vice President. I loved how the author added little boxes throughout the book called "Wisdom of Joe" that really highlighted the rules that Biden followed throughout his life.

There are a lot of personal stories throughout the book that were surprisingly new to me, some were heartwarming, some funny, and they all made me love Joe Biden even more. Is he perfect? No, and the author does not shy away from mistakes he made in his life, but you can't help but have respect for the tragedies he has had to overcome in his life. If you are a Joe Biden fan, this book is definitely for you.
