9780141040677: Race of a Lifetime: How Obama Won the White House

The runaway number one bestseller. The book that set Washington ablaze. The new non-fiction classic.

Forget everything you think you know about the making of the most powerful man on the planet. Obama's triumph was not inevitable: it was the end product of a brilliant, crazy, unique political campaign.

Race of a Lifetime is the gripping inside story of those thrilling months, from the collapsing House of Clinton to the erratic John McCain and the bewildering Sarah Palin.

Brimming with exclusive revelations, this compulsively readable book lays bare the characters of the candidates, warts and all, and charts the true path to the White House. It's a tour de force: the shocking, funny, and definitive account of the campaign of a lifetime.

Product Description:

Race Of A Lifetime

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)
