Flatiron Books publisher Bob Miller said Biden's work is a "rare book" that delves into the life of such a prominent figure. For twelve months, the vice president balanced the twin imperatives of living up to his responsibilities to his country and his family while his son Beau battled brain cancer.
Biden tweeted about the book, the site and the tour: "Excited to share news about #AmericanPromiseTour - a series of conversations I'm hosting around the country http://joebidenbook.com". In a tweet, Biden called the speaking tour "a series of conversations" with a tagline on a promotional image touting the tour as a way of "finding goal in a time of uncertainty". "It depends on the state of my health and the health of whoever is running".
"It's pretty special to have a vice president in the house", he said, adding that Proctors had been in touch with Biden's representatives for some time before recently receiving confirmation of his visit. "I don't know. Maybe not, but I thought I could've won".

After the book details were announced Monday, Biden said in a statement he hopes his memoir can help others battling through hard circumstances.
"Biden will reveal the big political moments of his career, the life-altering choices he made, and the key traits that have helped him persevere through challenges", states a Facebook page for the event. "I hope my own story will strike a chord with other Americans who have walked the same path I have", Biden said.
The tour coincides with the release of his memoir, "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and goal", which is out November 14.
