In 2008, the presidential election became blockbuster entertainment. Everyone was watching as the race for the White House unfolded like something from the realm of fiction. The meteoric rise and historic triumph of Barack Obama. The shocking fall of the House of Clinton—and the improbable resurrection of Hillary as Obama's partner and America's face to the world. The mercurial performance of John McCain and the mesmerizing emergence of Sarah Palin.Based on hundreds of interviews with the people who lived the story, Game Change is a reportorial tour de force that reads like a fast-paced novel.

I found it very interesting. It's easy to get caught up in the public personas and forget that these folks are just people. Well done and entertaining as well as informative and interesting.

Catnip for a political junkie. Political sausage making in all it unglory with a fly on the wall perspective. Could not put it down. The movie should be great. The last comparable book I read was What It Takes: The Way To The White House by Richard Ben Cramer.
