How did the Obama campaign's mostly under-30 field organizers, using cell phones and the Internet, energize a nation to vote for change? How did an unlikely candidate engage every American in the democratic process and ignite a movement that ended eras of political cynicism and apathy? The Obama Revolution is an in-the-trenches look at how President Barack Obama mobilized a generation to reclaim America. In this timely book, the author draws a vivid picture of grassroots organizing, from the grueling all-nighters to the endless canvassing, and explores the steps Obama took to clinch the Democratic nomination and win the election.
