Review:

The classic account of an epic presidential race... A book that reads like the fevered dream that everyone even remotely involved in the campaign insists it was - longer, more intense, more significant and peopled with vastly more fascinating candidates than any presidential race in living memory. Small wonder that HBO bought the film rights nine months before publication. (Giles Whittell The Times )

Race of a Lifetime is sleazy, personal, intrusive, shocking - and horribly compulsive. It is also thoroughly researched, well-paced and occasionally very amusing. Anyone who follows American politics will want to read it. ( The Economist )

A spicy smorgasbord of observations, revelations and allegations... The authors mix savvy political analysis with detailed reconstructions of scenes and conversations. They employ the same sort of technique Bob Woodward pioneered in his bestselling books to create a novelistic narrative.

[Race of a Lifetime] leaves the reader with a vivid, visceral sense of the campaign and a keen understanding of the paradoxes and contingencies of history.

(Michiko Kakutani The New York Times )

THE book to read about the election... Three modern presidential campaigns produced riveting, definitive chronicles: 1960 ( The Making of the President), 1968 ( The Selling of the President) and 1988 ( What It Takes). Now there's a fourth great campaign book, about 2008: Race of a Lifetime. (Kurt Andersen Very Short List )

From the Publisher:

The American title of this book is GAME CHANGE.

Book Description Harper, 2010. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "It's one of the best books on politics of any kind I've read. For entertainment value, I put it up there with Catch 22." The Financial Times "It transports you to a parallel universe in which everything in the National Enquirer is true.More interesting is what we learn about the candidates themselves: their frailties, egos and almost super-human stamina." The Financial Times "I can't put down this book!" Stephen Colbert Game Change is the New York Times bestselling story of the 2008 presidential election, by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, two of the best political reporters in the country. In the spirit of Richard Ben Cramer'sWhat It Takes and Theodore H. White's The Making of the President 1960, this classic campaign trail book tells the defining story of a new era in American politics, going deeper behind the scenes of the Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin campaigns than any other account of the historic 2008 election.
