Editorial Reviews

“Illuminating . . . A colorful topographical map of the Democratic landscape.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times “I had more fun reading The Argument than I’ve had reading any political book in ages. It was fun the way The Boys on the Bus was fun. The way Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail ’72 was fun. . . . Or maybe even the way Primary Colors was fun.”—Kevin Drum, Washington Monthly “Engaging and painstakingly reported.”—The Economist “Sharply written, exhaustively reported.”—Nick Gillespie, The New York Times Book Review
