Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809311143, Hardcover)

 “This is the most lucidly detailed ac­count, day-by-day and sometimes hour-by-hour, ever written on a political cam­paign. It is a fascinating and a luminous document on the high lunacy of cam­paign professionals, as they are known, and of some amateurs as well.”—John Kenneth Galbraith


Dennis Farney, correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, concurs, calling Bisnow’s contemporary political chronicle “First rate. An insider’s look at a presidential dark horse—how he rose, why he fell. A lively, informative case study for political student and political junkie alike.”


Pulitzer Prize winning columnist An­thony Lewis notes, “All those who won­dered what happened to John Anderson and his difference during the 1980 cam­paign will find many answers in Mark Bisnow’s account.”


John F. Sacks, national political corre­spondent for Time, sums up the book’s impact: “Mark Bisnow’s account of the improbable presidential campaign of John B. Anderson is as fresh and as frank as was the original campaign itself. No wonder, because Bisnow was at the cen­ter of that effort from the start. This is a most valuable memoir from one of the most interesting episodes in our recent political history.”
