    • Barack Obama is as fine a writer as they come. It is not merely that this book avoids being ponderous, as might be expected, even forgiven, of a hefty memoir, but that it is nearly always pleasurable to read, sentence by sentence, the prose gorgeous in places, the detail granular and vivid...Barack Obama has...illuminated a pivotal moment in American history

      Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, The New York Times
    • Deeply introspective and at times elegiac... [it] isn't the usual post-presidential legacy-burnishing project. There is a literary grandness... and dramatic renderings of moments high and low captured in sometimes Sorkin-esque dialogue...The narrative puts the reader in the room at defining moments

      Eli Stokols, LA Times
    • 701 pages of elegantly written narrative, contemplation and introspection, in which he frequently burrows down into his own motivations... A Promised Land delivers amply on the basic expectations of political autobiographies, providing a granular view from the driving seat of power. There are also the gratifying details observed in moments of historic import

      Julian Borger, The Guardian
    • A supremely intelligent, accomplished man . . . Obama emerges as kind to his staff, devoted to his children and absolutely in love with his wife

      Tim Stanley, The Telegraph
    • A classy book and not just one for insiders...[Obama] reminds us what it was like having a sense of magnanimity and modest statesmanship in the White House. Welcome home, decency

      James Hanning, inews.co.uk
    • Obama's is a beautifully written memoir...and covers his childhood through to the assassination of Osama bin Laden in 2011, which is written up like a thriller...it's probably the best volume of autobiography from a former president in modern times. As a reminder of a face of America it is invaluable

      Sean O'Grady, Independent, *****
    • Well-reasoned, well-written, insightful...we can read in detail of a time, not so long ago, when the president would ask for everybody else in the room to offer a view before offering his own...As a work of political literature A Promised Land is impressive. Obama is a gifted writer

      Gary Younge, Guardian
    • Deeply enjoyable...Obama is such a fluent and warm writer and so good at describing events and people

      Daily Express
    • The author of Dreams from My Father - his lyrical 1995 account of his tangled mixed-race upbringing in Hawaii and Jakarta - has not lost his narrative touch. This memoir is beautifully written and disarmingly candid...leavened with telling asides, poignant vignettes, painterly character sketches and an occasional corker of a joke

      Tony Allen-Mills, The Sunday Times
    • What is unexpected in A Promised Land is not its literary elegance but the former president's candour

      David Olusoga, Observer
