“Double Down: Game Change 2012″ is a follow-up to the bestseller Heliemann and Halperin wrote about the behind-the-scenes drama of the 2008 presidential campaign.
While looking forward with great anticipation to reading what the Game Change Boys have to say about Election 2012, I am puzzled why it will take until next Fall for the book to be released?
This is the era of the e-book, such as those must-reads from POLITICO’s Glenn Thrush and edited by Jon Meachem which provided near real-time accounts of the race for the White House. Can ‘Double Down’ really offer that much more than that four-part series? And, even if so, won’t most, if not all, of the juicy behind-the-scenes stories like those found in the first “Game Change” be already known?
Here’s hoping Halperin and Helimann can pull off another game changing act of journalism.
