    It didn't have as much campaign "insider" stuff as I liked and it didn't end as inspirationally as it began (like everything in life). I'd recommend it to a campaign person but no one else.

    Finest discussion of a campaign's events I've ever read. Dramatic, well-written, interesting.

    Snappy, short book about how Paul Wellstone won his first campaign. Very, very inspiring, if bittersweet.
