Review of The Audacity to Win by David Plouffe

The Audacity to Win: The Inside Story and Lessons of Barack Obama's Historic Victory - David Plouffe

As a big fan of President Obama, I really enjoyed reading this book that gives the behind the scenes history of the 2008 primary and Presidential campaign. It brought me back to a campaign I had followed closely and it was fascinating to read about the strategy and decisions made by those guiding the process. I also loved the behind the scenes peaks at President Obama and the complete respect and admiration his people had for him (although I wish there was more focus on him as a person in the book).

 

If you are a political junkie you will like this book no matter what your politics are. If you are not a political junkie, I would only recommend this if you are a fan of President Obama.
