Quotes & Awards

  • “That’s what O does best—without any undue cynicism or gooey romanticism: It clearly illustrates, season by season, just how effectively presidential campaigners plan, draft and articulate the political discourse that the press pretends it controls.” 

    Washington Post

  • “A political junkie’s rollicking read delivered by a knowledgeable, if subjective, insider.” 

    Library Journal

  • “A gossipy, entertaining novel…a slightly sharper-edged version of The West Wing…So who’s Anonymous? Who cares? O is a worthy read, no matter who the author.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Bobbie57 | 6/6/2011

    " Wish I knew who wrote this. In any case this is one of those books that might only appeal to people who are political wonks. It is so right on as to the stresses and procedures of campaigns from the inside. More detailed than most books of this type. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Stephanie | 6/6/2011

    " I really wanted all the reviews I had read of this book to be wrong. The beginning was strong and it could have been a good book if more time had been spent on character development and interaction and less time on pontificating about the process of presidential campaign politics. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Kaworu | 6/1/2011

    " What a trainwreck. A bad gimmick, with leaden writing, about events which are paltry distortions of facts, boring talking-head characters, lousy political propaganda, and nothing happens. Why do I push myself to suffer through these terrible books when I have 2000 on my to-read list? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Judith | 5/1/2011

    " It turned out to be nothing but a regular novel about politics. I was a little dry and difficul tto get through and did not add near the insight I had expected. Disappointing. "
