If you're a political junkie like me, then this is definitely the book for you. Written by campaign manager David Plouffe, "The Audacity to Win" is an insider's account of the successful Obama 2008 presidential campaign. Plouffe does a great job of explaining the rationale and logic behind some of the campaign decisions, like where to campaign or what voters to target. There's also insight into the other candidates and their strategies, with Plouffe dedicating an entire chapter to Sarah Palin. I also like how he interspersed a few personal details into his story of the campaign, telling how he balanced family life with being the campaign manager, although there wasn't much of a balance since he spent most of his time on the job. This is a great book and will intrigue anyone with an interest in politics or current events.
