Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:


'Incendiary, intriguing, nuanced, compelling, fantastically detailed'
Gaby Wood, Observer

'A spicy smorgasbord of observations, revelations and allegation. Leaves the reader with a vivid, visceral sense of the campaign and a keen understanding of the paradoxes and contingencies of history'
Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

'Consistently fascinating . . . every bit as good as Theodore White's The Making of a President '
Anthony Howard, Daily Telegraph

'Astounding, astonishing. Terribly compulsive. A thoroughly researched, well-paced and very amusing read. High-quality political porn'

'Great fun to read. A wealth of insight. Real fly-on-the-wall journalism, where the authors claim to know not just what people said, but what they were thinking'
Andy McSmith, Independent

'Compulsively readable. You can't put it down'
Los Angeles Times
