“We are thrilled with the first day sales,” said David Drake, publisher of the Penguin Random House imprint Crown. “They reflect the widespread excitement that readers have for President Obama’s highly anticipated and extraordinarily written book.”
Similar to his wife, Michelle Obama’s memoir, Becoming, Barack’s A Promised Land set a new record for preorders.
The 768-page book chronicles Barack Obama’s two-term presidency, the Donald Trump administration, and police and race relations.
[The book is] offering new details sure to titillate D.C. politicos. His insight into his mindset during his biggest presidential moments is a reminder of his thoughtfulness at a time when deep thought and reflection are desperately needed in the corridors of power,” Time writes.
