"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.

America's 2008 Presidential election was historically, an election like no other. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, John Edwards, Rudy Guiliani, and the rest of the hopefuls created a powerful narrative that captivated America, and the world. 'Game Change' takes a deeper look at this story, retelling the highlights and lowlights from a behind the scenes perspective into the major candidates' campaigns. Based largely upon interviews from campaign managers and insiders, 'Game Change' features never before heard reactions and decisions made in the heat of the battle for funding, airtime and votes. It's an extremely interesting insight into the ruminations that 'changed the world' in 2008. I highly recommend this book.
