3.0 out of 5 stars Not much new here..... 4 Sep 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
A dry, bland retelling of the 2008 Presidential election, devoid of the excitement and drama of the real thing. If you followed the elections as they were happening, you won't find much new material here.

Wonderful read, I couldn't put it down. In depth analysis of both primaries and the general with the main focus on Clinton, Obama and McCain.

Good, but it's been rehashed. If you're a political junkie, you will enjoy this.
4.0 out of 5 stars A very in-depth look at the 2008 Election 2 Jan 2014
By Chris Kaufman - Published on
I really enjoyed this book. It was a very in-depth look at the 2008 election, specifically Obama, McCain, Clinton, and Palin. While it was worth every penny of the sale price, I enjoyed GAME CHANGE by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann more. I found BATTLE FOR AMERICA to be pretty dry and devoid of excitement, although I learned a lot of new, interesting things. For people who like politics and elections, this is a must-read.
4.0 out of 5 stars Balz is always good. 8 Nov 2013
By Sandra J. Everett - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent wrap-up of interesting election. Provides good insights and perspectives. Dan Balz is always both thorough and objective, with readability thrown in the mix.
