Product description

Review

The most exciting political book of recent years. Election reporting will never be the same again (Andrew Adonis News Statesman, Books of the Year)

Welcome to the meat-grinder, flash-incinerator race to be the 44th President of the United States

(The Times)

Incendiary, intriguing, nuanced, compelling. A fantastically detailed and gossipy affair (Gaby Wood Observer)

A spicy smorgasbord of observations, revelations and allegation. Leaves the reader with a vivid, visceral sense of the campaign and a keen understanding of the paradoxes and contingencies of history (Michiko Kakutani New York Times)

Consistently fascinating... every bit as good as Theordore White's The Making of a President (Anthony Howard Daily Telegraph)

Astounding, astonishing. Sleazy, personal, intrusive, shocking - and terribly compulsive. A thoroughly researched, well-paced and very amusing read. High-quality political porn (Economist)

The best account of the triumph of 2008 (Jonathan Powell New Statesman, Books of the Year)

Great fun to read. A wealth of insight. Real fly-on-the-wall journalism, where the authors claim to know not just what people said, but what they were thinking

(Andy McSmith Independent)

Compulsively readable. You can't put it down

(Los Angeles Times)
