'Double Down: Game Change 2012' By John Heilemann and Mark Halperin

    In their runaway bestseller Game Change, Mark Halperin and John Heilemann captured the drama of Barack Obama’s improbable victory over the Clintons, John McCain, and Sarah Palin.

With the same reporting, unparalleled access, and narrative skill, Double Down picks up the story in the Oval Office, where the president is beset by crises both inherited and unforeseen—facing defiance from his political foes, disenchantment from the voters, disdain from the nation’s powerful money machers, and dysfunction within the West Wing.
