The Bidens Are Following Obama Family's Footsteps, Signs Huge Multi-Book Deal

After President and First Lady Obama left the White House, many anticipated that the two would pen their memoirs. No sooner did the Obamas start settling into civilian life, offers started coming out of the woodwork and multi-million dollar deals were made. The much-anticipated memoirs are already in the works, and now the Bidens are following in the Obamas footsteps. Both Mr. and Mrs. Biden have scored new book deals of their own.

Former Vice President Joe Biden will be releasing two books. The first book will revolve around 2015, a difficult year for Mr. Biden. His son, Beau Biden, lost the battle with brain cancer and passed away, devastating the father. The death of Beau ultimately resulted in the popular Vice President making the decision not to run for President in 2016.

After President Donald Trump won the election, Biden says he came to regret this choice. He feels he could have won if he ran against Trump, but he was just not up to it at the time. It’s planned to be 'the story of not just a politician, but of a father, grandfather, friend and husband,' according to Flatrion Press (a Macmillan imprint).

"The Vice President's book promises to give us all a deeper understanding of recent political history, but it will clearly also be a book about the values that have given the Vice President strength in both good times and bad," says a press release.

The company isn't giving any details yet about the second book Biden will be writing as part of the deal.

Mr. Biden's wife, Dr. Jill Biden, also has a book deal, though no details on that have been released, either.

Former vice presidents rarely write notable books, especially when they don't go on to become president. Biden's book is expected to get unprecedented attention for a vice president's memoir.
