This book is refreshingly honest and surprisingly informative. I will admit that this book can get a little deep into the inside baseball aspect of running a campaign, but if you have any interest in joining on to a campaign in the future, this book is an entertaining must!
If you are of the opposite political party, it should scare you how far ahead the 2008 campaign was of its rivals' (both Clinton and McCain), and the tactics, techniques, and technology available from this book no doubt served as a wake up call for many future Republican campaigns and their committees.
If you are of the same party as the author, you will be astounded at the level of ability and depth of knowledge you will need to stay afloat in what is likely to be the norm for Democratic politics for the next generation.
The reader gets a clear sense of why the Obama campaign came out ahead of its rivals in 2008, and will no doubt be astounded at the complexity and depth of the political machine that pushed them over the top.
This is the rare book that is far from a love story about the candidate, but really a 'warts and all' review of the Organizing For America campaign from beginning to end.
