A biography of Joe Biden, the 46th President of the United States​: from childhood through the Senate to his election as vice president and, in 2020, as president. The road to the presidency of the United States was a long—and determined—one for Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. From Joe’s childhood in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware, his close-knit, devoted family gave him the foundation that would guide him through life. His family’s unwavering support bolstered Joe when he was bullied for stuttering, attended law school, and became a public defender. They encouraged Joe when he pursued a career in politics and became the sixth youngest senator in US history. They consoled him when he suffered the devastating loss of his first wife and baby daughter and years later the death of his eldest son, Beau. And they cheered Joe when he served two vice presidential terms with President Barrack Obama. After a lifetime marked by perseverance, integrity, and accomplishment, Joe Biden and running mate, Kamala Harris, won the 2020 presidential election. And standing by his side each and every step of the way was his wife Jill, his children, and his grandchildren—his family.

A concise, brilliant, and trenchant examination of Democratic Nominee Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s lifelong quest for the presidency by National Book Award winner Evan Osnos, adapted from nearly a decade of his reporting for The New Yorker. Former vice president Joseph R. Biden Jr. has been called both the luckiest man and the unluckiest—fortunate to have sustained a fifty-year political career that reached the White House, but also marked by deep personal losses and disappointments that he has suffered. Yet even as Biden’s life has been shaped by drama, it has also been powered by a willingness, rare at the top ranks of politics, to confront his shortcomings, errors, and reversals of fortune. As he says, “Failure at some point in your life is inevitable, but giving up is unforgivable.” His trials have forged in him a deep empathy for others in hardship—an essential quality as he addresses Americans in the nation’s most dire hour in decades. Blending up-close journalism and broader context, Evan Osnos, who won the National Book Award in 2014, draws on his work for The New Yorker to capture the characters and meaning of an extraordinary presidential election. It is based on lengthy interviews with Biden and on revealing conversations with more than a hundred others, including President Barack Obama, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, and a range of progressive activists, advisers, opponents, and Biden family members. This portrayal illuminates Biden’s long and eventful career in the Senate, his eight years as Obama’s vice president, his sojourn in the political wilderness after being passed over for Hillary Clinton in 2016, his decision to challenge Donald Trump for the presidency, and his choice of Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. Osnos ponders the difficulties Biden will face if elected and weighs how political circumstances, and changes in the candidate’s thinking, have altered his positions. In this nuanced portrait, Biden emerges as flawed, yet resolute, and tempered by the flame of tragedy—a man who just may be uncannily suited for his moment in history.

ABOUT THE BOOK Joseph R. Biden is currently serving as the forty-seventh Vice President of the United States, in President Barack Obama's administration. Prior to this, he enjoyed a long career in the US Senate as a Democrat. He is known for his devotion to such issues as arms control, drug policy, crime prevention, and civil liberties. During his time in the senate, Biden served on the Foreign Relations Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee. By the time he became Vice President in 2008, Joe Biden was the fifteenth longest serving Senator in US history. Joe Biden came from a family of modest means in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and has often been described as one of the poorest members of the senate. During his Senate career, Biden famously commuted to Washington, DC by train every day from his home in Wilmington, Delaware. He worked tirelessly for the people of Delaware, and continues to serve his country in the White House. His devotion to his family and to his job earned Biden the respect of many of his colleagues, both Democratic and Republican. Joe Biden experienced some considerable tragedies, including the death of his first wife and young daughter. His resilience and tenacity enabled him to live through difficult times and continue his work in the public sector. President Obama has said that he made Joe Biden his Vice Presidential pick because of his long history in politics and because he was trusted by voters. Biden also had extensive foreign policy experience and a history of being able to work with colleagues across the political aisle. Biden's public life has encompassed some of the most important political events of the late twentieth century. As the Senator from Delaware and then as Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden has served his country faithfully for over three decades. Joe Biden is known by many in politics to be a man who says what he is thinking. Although his verbal gaffes have occasionally gotten him in trouble, many also find his truthful nature refreshing. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. was born November 20, 1942 in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The Bidens were strong Roman Catholics of Irish, English, and French heritage. Biden's father, Joseph Robinette Biden, Sr., was a businessman who had suffered some financial reverses in the years before his first son's birth. Biden's mother, Catherine Eugenia Finnegan, was an Irish Catholic woman who went on to have three more children: two sons, James Brian and Francis W., and a daughter, Valerie (Biden) Owens. Biden's paternal grandfather, Joseph H. Biden, had been a successful oil businessman in Baltimore, but Joseph Biden, Sr.'s business interests did not pay well enough for the young family to live on their own. During the early years of Biden's life, the family lived with Catherine Eugenia's parents, the Finnegans. Scranton, Pennsylvania experienced a further economic downturn in the 1950s, and Biden's father was unable to find enough work to support his family. So, the Biden family moved to Claymont, Delaware in 1953 and lived in a small apartment. Soon, Joe Biden Sr. found work as a used car salesman and the family moved again to a small house in Wilmington, Delaware. Joseph Biden, Jr. attended high school at the Archmere Academy where he was an average student and a very good football player. He played halfback or wide receiver on his high school football team, and in his senior year the team went undefeated. Although he did not stand out academically during high school, Biden was already politically involved, and he attended an anti-segregation sit-in at a Wilmington theater... the book to continue reading!

A deep dive into Joe Biden's history and the origins of his political values Yesterday's Man exposes the forgotten history of Joe Biden, one of the United States's longest-serving politicians, and one of its least scrutinized. Over nearly fifty years in politics, the man called "Middle-Class Joe" served as a key architect of the Democratic Party's rightward turn, ushering in the end of the liberal New Deal order and enabling the political takeover of the radical right. Far from being a liberal stalwart, Biden often outdid even Reagan, Gingrich, and Bush, assisting the right-wing war against the working class, and ultimately paving the way for Trump. The most comprehensive political biography of someone who has tried for decades to be president, Yesterday's Man is an essential read for anyone interested in knowing the real Joe Biden and what he might do in office.
