    As we are just days into the second term of President Obama, we explore this morning the hard-fought closing months of the 2012 presidential campaign. Journalist Michael Hastings is the author of Panic 2012: The Sublime and Terrifying Inside Story of Obama's Final Campaign.

Hastings – BuzzFeed correspondent at large; Rolling Stone contributor; George Polk Award winner; and critically acclaimed, New York Times-bestselling author of The Operators – presents an in-your-face, on-the-ground, real-time, singular account of how the Obama campaign privately panicked and ultimately recovered after the President’s disastrous performance in his first debate with Mitt Romney.

The ebook is a wholly original portrayal of the enormous and intense political operation that is an American presidential campaign. The book is an in-depth, post-election account of a crucial campaign that revealed the new outlines of a rapidly changing nation.
