      This short Kindle Single really needs to be read in conjunction with their other Single, The End of the Line and perhaps an earlier one in their Playbook 2012 series. I avoid TV pundits and daily reportage like the plague, preferring to wait until the dust settles and writers gain a little distance to figure out exactly what happened.I remember avidly reading all the Teddy White "Making of the President" and I've recently started Richard Ben Cramer's "What it Takes", an excellent analysis of the [...]

    • Kurt Pankau says:

      I love what Politico is doing with their coverage. Rather than a retrospective at the end of the election, they're releasing episodic mini-ebooks at regular intervals, meaning that I'm reading fresh political coverage in a book. A book! I would come across a retelling of something and realize that the event being described had only happened a month ago. Of course the real problem here is that INSIDE THE CIRCUS came out a week before Santorum dropped from the race, which would have given the narr [...]

    • Ray says:

      Taking this up in June, 2012, after the G.O.P. Presidential Candidate race is over, lessens some of the interest in this book. It covers the just completed nomination process and the G.O.P. debates, but much of the information isn't all that newsbreaking. But it's a good summary, and possibly an informative insiders look into the Primary battle for those who hadn't had a chance to pay close attention. The book focuses primarily on Romney, and a little into Santorum, and touches on several of the [...]

    • Melissa Acuna says:

      I enjoyed reading this account of the Romney campaign, with a bit about Rick Santorum thrown in. While there aren't a lot of anecdotes or pieces of background information that are entirely new to those who read Politico religiously, it was nice to have a chronological compilation. I also appreciated the fairness shown to the candidates by the authors. I am not a huge Romney fan but the authors' show Mitt in a balanced light and should he win the Presidency, it seems he'll govern with fairness an [...]

    • Jason Stanford says:

      I can't imagine how hard it must be to run a campaign with your fundraisers and staffers dishing anonymously for a book that will come out in near real time. This will change campaigning for the worse, adding a meta layer of self-awareness to what has been a private activity. Nevertheless, Playbook 2012 is a good summary of what's going on and what Republican insiders think about it. It helped me understand Mitt Romney better, and the nuggets about Rick Perry were great. But if you've been follo [...]

    • Jack says:

      I'm a sucker: $3 for a book of about 100 pages. Probably as good of a timely narrative of the 2012 presidential race as one can get. And Mike Allen knows everything. So, if you're curious about all that GOP on GOP frustration that we saw for the past couple of months as Romney finally pulled ahead of the rest, then this is the short book for you. First read the early installment: the Right Fights Back.

    • Jared says:

      This semi-real time reporting concept for an ebook is a neat concept. The fact that Politico -- which is pretty well respected and connected -- is behind it gives it the necessary credibility boost. This volume focuses mainly on Romney and Santorum, touching very lightly on the rest of the GOP field.

    • Roman says:

      First installment was better, but overall pretty good. If you're a religious Politico reader you won't find much that you didn't know already. They should have held out for the triple Wisconsin, Maryland and DC win by Romney - since that pretty much wrapped up the primary. they left it open ended like it was still anyones racewhen it's actually all but over.

    • Matt says:

      Readable, easy to digest, but not actually that illuminating. Kind of the campaign book equivalent of sugar. Their first e-book was better. This one was too reliant on quotes from various anonymous advisers discussing candidate character.

    • Steve says:

      I found the book very interesting and provided a lot of information into the behind the scenes activities that occur during a political campaign. It also revealed more about the candidates than you would get from just reading their campaign material or listening to their speeches.

    • Tom says:

      Not much new here that wasn't public knowledge and the book ended well before the Herman Cain clown car made its appearance.

    • Alicia Brooks says:

      I love this behind the scenes, inside baseball, beltway insider stuff. Its fantastic and juicy.

    • SweetPea says:

      A quick read with a few interesting tidbits that I wasn't aware of. The ending seemed too abbreviated, as though the last paragraph had been erroneously cut off. Overall a good read though.

    • Kathleen says:

      Fascinating look at the nomination process. Well written and a quick read.

    • Jamison Doran says:

      A super quick read that gives an interesting overview of the Republican race up until 2012. I'd certainly recommend it to politicos, you can easily get through it in an evening.

    • Rick Cheeseman says:

      Ehok.

    • Stewart says:

      A decent up-close account of the 2012 GOP primaries as they unfolded. Certainly leaves one nostalgic for the days when Gingrich, Santorum, and Bachmann were the scariest candidates on the field

    • Kyle J says:

      I enjoyed the book, however if you frequently read Politico you won't find a whole that you haven't already heard about.

    • Olivia says:

      Fascinating and depressing, and in view of this week's incident(s), quite prescient at times.

    • Bryan Summers says:

      I love Mitt and Ann Romney's relationship.

    • Kenny says:

      a disappointment. might as well watch msnbc
