Say something about yourself!
It was long ago in a time of conflict and treachery when a man from a land far away came to power despite the best efforts of a baby boomer couple, an angry Vietnam Vet, and a woman who comes from nowhere. The woman from nowhere soon becomes a story bigger than the economic collapse of Planet Earth. She's a milf with a five kids, one of whom is a pregnant 17 year old daughter, a husband who's a longtime proponent of Alaskan secession, not to mention a propensity for sticking her foot in her mouth. She was the biggest reason that this book soon became a movie. It also made a star of an obscure actress named Tina Fey; the campaign not the film. Though it appeared obvious that the authors liked the man from the faraway land to win the authors were diligent in their efforts to expose his peccadilloes including his strange minister. Given all the really weird religious fervor in the other party it seems strange indeed that they didn't mention the exorcism of the woman from Alaska.
All in all it's a nice book; I learned a lot.
I am not able to evaluate the difference. I did enjoy the audio version.
several areas were funny, but i believe that is related to my political leanings.
I aud a lot of books.
I listened nearly straight through. The stuff about the Clintons and later Palin is priceless.
No dull moments.
The narrator! I loved his reading. He read aloud with expression and enthusiasm. His tone was perfect throughout.
Really the whole book deserves a re-read.
I didn't have an extreme reaction but there are humorous points and a lot of telling moments.
Prior to reading this book I was very partisan, but after this book, I understood more where the other party's candidates were coming from.
Too bad they all just can't be more open on their motivations and purposes instead of shouting never-ending talking points.
I already have. It's the best political science book, I have ever come across.
The Behind-the Scenes, is a book within the book !It's book, docu-drama, & soap opera- all in one.
He makes you feel like you're there in the room with the characters.
Please see headline.
Enjoyable, educational, informative to put it mildly. The book for those who love, & also hate history!!!
This was a very informative and entertaining look at the 2008 election. Highly recommended to anyone interested in politics.
Love to read, and love to hear a book read to me.
A fun book - enough detail to be interesting without getting bogged down. The reader had an odd way of emphasizing the wrong words in the sentence, which was confusing and annoying. He didn't do it a lot, and in general he was very good, but it definitely detracted from my enjoyment.
The story is amazing and true.
The narration was presented from the inside of the campaigns. Which gave a fly on the wall perspective
The best inside scoop of the 2008 campaign
