Friday, November 15, 2013 we welcomed back the authors of the number one New York Times bestseller Game Change for their latest book, Double Down: Game Change (Publish Date: November 5, 2013).
John Heilemann and Mark Halperin set the national conversation on fire with their bestselling account of the 2008 presidential election, Game Change. In Double Down, they apply their unparalleled access and storytelling savvy to the 2012 election, rendering an equally compelling narrative about the circuslike Republican nomination fight, the rise and fall of Mitt Romney, and the trials, tribulations, and Election Day triumph of Barack Obama. Double Down is the occasionally shocking, often hilarious, ultimately definitive account of an election of singular importance.
John Heilemann is national affairs editor for New York magazine and a political analyst for MSNBC. An award-winning journalist and author of Pride Before the Fall, he is a former staff writer for The New Yorker, Wired, and The Economist. He lives in Brooklyn.
Mark Halperin is editor-at-large and senior political analyst for TIME magazine, and senior political analyst for MSNBC. Halperin, who has covered seven presidential elections, received his B.A. from Harvard University and resides in New York City with Karen Avrich.
