Summary, etc.:
An exploration of Joe Biden as told through his extended family.
In November 2020, Americans did not just elect Joe Biden: they got a package deal. The entire Biden family are sure to play a defining role in his presidency, just as they have in every one of his endeavors. Schreckinger believes the best way to understand Biden-- his values, fears and motives-- is to understand his family. He explores their Irish (and not-so-Irish) roots, their dodgy business deals, and their personal struggles and triumphs alike. -- Adapted from jacket
