User reviews about this book
Arguably the best book I've ever read
By College educated scientist
This book is full of secrets and details that made the press and the country go wild when it first came out. Finally getting to read it I know why. It was an excellent book, a wet dream for the politically engaged. Could not recommend it more highly. (College student, age 21)
Perfectly non-partisan view from noth sides
Terrific reminder of events, but with the human backstory we don't think about. Politics aside, I was able to see both candidates, and their wives, as actual human beings, and not the political robots we see on the screen. I actually started to get nervous come election night.
For those of us part-time political enthusiast, Game Changer and Double Down offer a wonderful inside look to the 2008 and 2012 campaigns. I, personally, do not have a cable connection and besides an occasional peruse of NYT or the Washington Post websites almost no ongoing information into political events as they happen - so, this evenly and fast paced narrative is like a big tub of ice cream after years in the desert: sweet, cool and very refreshing.
I recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in national politics or in the personalities of the people that aspire to lead this great country.
An amazing book from cover to cover.
WOW. I have not been able to put this book down. It is an amazing, easy read. It gives real insight into the 2010-2012 circus that was the presidential election.
I would highly recommend this to members in both sides of the aisle. As it shows the critical flaws, and winning strategies if an election with huge implications.
Not a Game Change
I regret having spent money on this book. It is indeed full of juicy gossip. But this is not enough to overcome the bad writing. Strained metaphors, arcane vocabulary, and errors in grammar and usage, along with passages that are simply hard to make sense of, make the book sound like it was written by a committee of second-rate grad students. Wait for the movie instead.
If you're a political junkie this is for you. Behind the scenes look at how the Extreme Right will soon make the GoPee extinct and the disastrous decisions they have made choosing their candidates for president. The Clint Eastwood fiasco says it all.
