Loved this one. A great peek behind the curtain on the 2012 presidential race. Fact-based, but reads like a novel. I had followed the election closely and therefore was already familiar with a lot of the events, but still found this account fascinating. Definitely recommend this one.

I eagerly pursued this book. It was able to shine light into several corners of the campaign that I didn't know about and helped bring a lot of pieces together. I think that if you want to have a solid executive overview of the campaign and how it all went down -- this is what you want to read.
However, if you want to read about all the pettiness and the muckraking -- I would recommend you read Game Change, which is what I am going to read next. That covers more about the personal relationships and dynamics of the race. This was a fun read but I am finding Game Change to be more entertaining and fun.
Kafer reads well and has a great voice. Balz has written a solid and definitive addition for the campaign war books which belong on any political junkie's bookshelf or, in this case, audio library.
