This is an excellent review of the nomination race as well as the actual 2008 US Presidential Election. Based on extensive interviews with people who were involved in Republican, Democratic campaigns, the authors look at why the US ended up with McCain and Obama facing off against each other in the final rundown, and what pushed Obama over the top. Many of the candidates and their families come out looking not so good. This is especially true of the Edwards family. Elizabeth comes off looking like a manipulative, conniving Lady Macbeth who has stage managed her pretty boy husband's career.

Still, this work is engrossing, full of insider details about how a campaign is run and funded. Worthwhile for even the most casual political junkie.
