Former President Barack Obama took to twitter and announced he’s finished his memoir, which is something we’re sure you’ve just been waiting for:
There’s no feeling like finishing a book, and I’m proud of this one. In A Promised Land, I try to provide an honest accounting of my presidency, the forces we grapple with as a nation, and how we can heal our divisions and make democracy work for everybody. pic.twitter.com/T1QSZVDvOm

But what he didn’t say is that his memoir will be split into two volumes, the first hitting shelves on November 17:
Obama splits his memoir into two volumes, with the first, titled "A Promised Land," to be published on Nov. 17.

Mr. “let me be clear” can’t be clear in one volume?

How much will he reveal? LOL. Buy Volume 2, suckers, and find out:
Obama: easily the best writer among leaders since Churchill. How much will he reveal? … Due a fortnight after the election. https://t.co/pYjBQjcFWm
