it was amazing
Read in August, 2010

With the PA primary coming up I thought this would be appropriate to read. It is amazing to see the inner workings of the political process, and getting the first hand account is really eye opening at some times. Also, there seems to be a number of similarities between the 1972 campaign members and those running today - it's amazing how little has really changed with politicians. Tough thing about the book is not knowing most of the key players, but Thompson does a great job of really filling all the key information. Also kind of interesting to learn more about these individuals on the side to get a little better grasp on the situation. Check this book out and see how much more you follow the election; you will gain a whole new understanding of what's going on.
