Authored by Biden himself, Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics reveals what his tragic and near-fatal experiences had taught him about himself, his colleagues (including former President Obama), and the institutions of government. The book recounts the author's childhood in a staunchly Catholic Pennsylvania and Delaware households, as well as his brushes with personal tragedies, life-threatening illnesses and career setbacks, all of which shaped his life principles.

Also authored by the former veep, Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose is a "deeply moving" memoir about the year that would change both the Biden family and the country. (That year was Thanksgiving 2014, which was celebrated by his family even as he was aware that his eldest son Beau was diagnosed with a brain tumor months earlier, taking his life two years later.) The audiobook version, in particular, even features Biden himself as the narrator.

The President of Vice (Kindle Single) is a fun read if you are fond of political satire, especially those as hilarious as those from The Onion. Available in Kindle and Audiobook formats, this "scandalous memoir" sees "Diamond" Joe discussing his (fictional) early years prior to becoming a wingman to the leader of the free world (i.e. then-President Obama).

Biden Time: Crazy Uncle Joe in His Own Words shows the former veep at his "vapid worst."
