I consider myself a "politcal junky" but I found out things about the 2008 campaigns (both Democrat and Republican) that I didn't know. This book is very easy to listen to.
Following election 2008 was much more exciting than watching any Superbowl, NBA or World Series game. "Game Change" did an excellent job giving play by play narration of this historical battle of the giants: Hillary, Obama, McCain, Palin--a cast of all-stars to be sure. This playbook recapping the world's greatest contest ever between politicians was exciting, objective and answered a lot of questions. And it is a must read before the 2012 election cycle begins!
The election of 2008 had some of the most colorful politicians ever. This behind-the-scenes scoop held me spellbound.
Excellent insider information about the 2008 presidential campaign. LOVED IT!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a well written, balanced, historical examination of the 2008 presidential election. It is well read by the narrator. Having followed the 2008 Presidential election closely I had a number of questions about why certain events played out the way they did and how different individuals were depicted in the press. This book answered most of my questions.
Like many people around the world, I followed the 2008 US election campaign with interest and bemusement, hoping Americans would elect someone better than Bush. "Game Change" has been a fascinating look behind the scenes, and I found it entertaining without being trivial, and full of interesting nuggets and quotes. The writing style is professional and clear. This is not a hatchet job and it doesn't try to invoke political polemic or grandstanding. I think the authors have done a brilliant job and have covered a difficult topic in a most effective and interesting manner. Warning: quite a few of the quotes contain the f-word, so don't listen in the car if children are around. Another warning: it isn't a thriller, but don't expect to be able to stop listening easily. The story and the stakes have their own drama, and even though we know the outcome, you won't want to miss any of the details this book provides.
