Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "Those hungry for political news will read Double Down for the scooplets and insidery glimpses it serves up about the two campaigns, and the clues it offers about the positioning already going on among Republicans and Democrats for 2016 ... The book testifies to its authors' energetic legwork and insider access ... creating a novelistic narrative that provides a you-are-there immediacy ... They succeed in taking readers interested in the backstabbing and backstage maneuvering of the 2012 campaign behind the curtains, providing a tactile ... sense of what it looked like from the inside." Michael Kinsley, The New York Times Book Review "Chock-full of anecdotes, secret meetings, indiscreet remarks ... No one can compete [with Halperin and Heilemann]. That's what it means to own the franchise. It's a small club: these two guys and Bob Woodward. And with this book, they've earned their admission." The Economist "Sharp insights buttressed by startling indiscretions fill Double Down, a new account of Barack Obama's win over his 2012 Republican rival, Mitt Romney. This gripping book--a sequel to Game Change, a bestseller about Mr. Obama's 2008 path to the White House--cements the status of the authors as unrivalled chroniclers of campaign politics." USA Today "Many juicy disclosures ... [a] near-flawless narrative." Jeff Labrecque, Entertainment Weekly "Journalists Halperin and Heilemann don't lack for access, delivering another down-and-dirty account of an election that plays out like high-stakes high school cafeteria politics.... Double Down looks less like a sequel to 2008 than a tantalizing prequel to 2016. I'm all-in." Peter Hamby, The Washington Post "Page-turning.... translat[es] insider politics for mass-market readers with behind-the-scenes reporting and Gonzo flair." Joe Scarborough, MSNBC/Morning Joe: "Done it before, and have done it again." Charlie Rose: "In many ways, an insight into America." Chris Matthews, MSNBC/Hardball: "Great new book.... Great reportage." Barbara Walters, ABC-TV/The View: "Authors of the bestselling book turned Emmy-winning HBO movie Game Change are telling all in their latest book ... It is terrific." Mark Levin: "This is a great read." Ezra Klein, The Washington Post "Double Down... is a joyous romp through the seedy underbelly of presidential campaigning....It's also a marvel of reporting. Any time three staff members met in a room to badmouth a colleague or a candidate admitted to a moment of stress or self-doubt, ... John Heilemann and Mark Halperin appear to have been sitting in the corner, scribbling notes." Lawrence O'Donnell, MSNBC's The Last Word: "I love this book." Anderson Cooper, AC360: "Really fascinating details." Andrew Ross Sorkin, CNBC's Squawk Box: "Buzz book of the moment." Dylan Byers, Politico: "In an era when the most minute details of a presidential campaign are chronicled in endless tweets and seemingly instant eBooks they have published an old-fashioned print product filled with new revelations." Howard Kurtz, Fox News: "You'd think there were no revelations left from the 2012 campaign, but Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, the Game Change duo, strike again in their new book." Business Insider "Fascinating new insights." Geraldo Rivera: "Sizzling... They've done it again." Willie Geist, MSNBC/Morning Joe: "Huge."
