"David Lienemann spent eight years documenting Joe Biden's time as one of the most consequential Vice Presidents in history, capturing nearly a million photographs that depict Biden's partnership with President Obama and show him coming into his own as a leader ready to guide a nation in distress. These photographs and behind-the-scenes stories present Biden's time in the White House in unprecedented detail. They shed light on the true business of American leadership: Biden's integrity on the world stage, his compassion at home, and his hard work to improve the lives of each citizen. This book also reveals new depth to Biden's humanity as a lifelong public servant whose decency shines through tragedy and triumph, whose working-class roots inform his values, and whose candor and openness enable him to connect with Americans of all kinds. The result is a portrait of Biden not only as a patriot but as a father and friend. This vision of American leadership is more timely and important than ever and will inspire readers who yearn for the return of honesty and ethics to our nation's highest office"--Inside jacket flap.
