    A Terrific Summary of an Extraordinary Election

    From the 'to the reader' to the last page, this book is absorbing, clear and enjoyable. It is written with a clarity of style and a summarizing tone that helps to make a typically boring subject matter (politics) into a fast, easy and informative read.

    This book does a wonderful job of setting the stage for the election, fleshing out little known aspects of each candidate, and carefully describing the setting upon which the election was to take place. It does into depth in some areas, highlighting interesting and revealing vignettes about the candidates and other influential persons and also tracks general trends. This establishes a well-rounded description not only of the election and its primary characters, but also of the American people and their uncharacteristic zeal and emotion throughout the race.

    I recommend this to anyone who has any lingering general questions about the election or who'd like to put their own experiences into the perspective of the candidates or of the country as a whole. Even if neither of these apply to you, this books remains an excellent chronicle of the political atmosphere in a period of extraordinary growth and change for America.

    The Battle for America 2008 is history in the present.

    This elightening historical book is hard to stop reading. The data brings out the difficult task of running for public office. It helps the
    reader to see what inspiration drives someone to put their life on the
    line for public inspection. The candidate must have the greatest of
    drive to endure the questions and the time it takes to keep up the
    pace. You see the supporting cast providing their expertise and
    their patience. I am also pleased with Barnes & Noble processing orders
    promptly.

    THE best book written about the amazing 2008 Presidential race

    This is a thoroughly engaging and infinitely interesting book. If you think you've heard or read all you could possibly know about what went on during the 2008 Presidential race, think again. The behind-the-scenes details previously not known to the public is so revealing and thought provoking I simply couldn't put this book down. The candid interviews the authors had with the candidates and their staff, during and after the campaign, give us more than a glimpse of the rough and tumble world of a campaign during the most amazing race of our lifetimes. Even if you are not into politics, this book will surely catch your interest. Don't miss this one. Read it!!!
