This is an ingenious book coming from Larry Sabato combining the political insights of a star-studded team of journalists with the power of the Internet. Upon purchasing this book, you get a personal code so that you can log on to the Get in the Booth website, and get updates to the book right up until the election! With chapters focusing on the basic importance of voting, Health Care, Foreign Policy, and Education, this book provides every voter with a non-partisan view of the facts. I strongly recommend this book to every voter in America.
