Race of a Lifetime Reviews


The most exciting political book of recent years. Election reporting will never be the same again -- Andrew Adonis * News Statesman, Books of the Year *

Welcome to the meat-grinder, flash-incinerator race to be the 44th President of the United States

* The Times *
Incendiary, intriguing, nuanced, compelling. A fantastically detailed and gossipy affair -- 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 Theordore White's The Making of a President -- Anthony Howard * Daily Telegraph *
Astounding, astonishing. Sleazy, personal, intrusive, shocking - and terribly compulsive. A thoroughly researched, well-paced and very amusing read. High-quality political porn * Economist *
The best account of the triumph of 2008 -- Jonathan Powell * New Statesman, Books of the Year *

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 *
