Since 1984, Newsweek has been renowned for its vivid, in-depth special election coverage of the ordeal of running for the presidency. A year before the election, Newsweek assigns reporters to get inside the campaigns of the Republican and Democratic candidates. Newsweek promises not to publish any information until after the votes are cast, and in exchange, the reporters receive remarkable access. They travel with the candidates, are there at crucial turning points and confidential meetings, and uncover stories not covered in day-to-day reporting.

In A Long Time Coming, a compelling narrative by Evan Thomas, Newsweek shares the inside stories from one of the most exciting elections in recent history, illuminating the personalities and events that influenced the outcome, and taking stock of the key players and key issues for the new administration.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 12/20/2012

    " More great insight into the 2008 presidential campaign. Not as good as "Game Change," but a close second. "

    " Fun look behind the scenes of the Obama campaign. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 3/10/2012

    " Interesting "behind the scenes" view of the 2008 election. I read through this book very quickly--some of the reporting was brief (for example, very little was said about Joe Biden, etc.). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 12/2/2011

    " Spoiler alert: Obama wins. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 9/22/2011

    " I really enjoy this book about the elements of the campaign. It was a short book and was easy to understand. I reeally enjoyed finished it in a day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcia | 5/20/2011

    " I learned that there is no straight road that leads you to your goal. There are a lot of twists and turns but you learn how to handle them as you move onto your final destination. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/24/2011

    " I have a quite sense of respect for President Obama. After reading this book it has grown by leaps and bounds. God bless our President. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Saila Erion | 8/11/2009

    " Perfect read for a news junkie who admires President Obama. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 8/8/2009

    " Great read about Obama's campaign from its beginning stages and until he walked on stage in Chicago promising that "Change has come to America." Telling observations about McCain and Hilary's campaign too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sacha | 7/3/2009

    " Was really, really interesting. I hope they do another like this for the next election. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 3/25/2009

    " A collection of Newsweek articles, giving a basic overview/recap of last year's election. Perfect material for audio, as it didn't come close to getting bogged down in details; the narrator on the other hand ... need not give up his day job. "
