Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime

By John Heilemann, Mark Halperin

The gripping inside story of the 2008 presidential election, by two of the best political reporters in the country.

"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's What 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.

You ve got to read "Game Change". . . . I read each and every word. . . . "Game Change" is a great book. --Don Imus
"The best presidential political book since "What it Takes" by Richard Ben Cramer and Teddy White's books. These are the types of books that got me into politics."--Joe Scarborough
"Compulsively readable. Once begun, you can't put it down. . . . Deeply and knowledgeably reported and presented with all the cool sophistication one would expect from two accomplished political reporters."--Tim Rutten, "The Los Angeles Times"
"A thoroughly researched, well-paced and occasionally very amusing read. . . . The result is something that conveys the feel, or perhaps more accurately the smell, of one of recent history's most thrilling elections, and it does so better than any of the other books already on the market."--"The Economist"
