Product Details


“Hastings knows how to ask hard questions … An entertainment … Aspiring politicos and their staffers, though, will want [PANIC 2012] for its astute look at the tricks of the trade.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Panic 2012 is an often outrageous, irreverent riff on politics and media…a wild ride.”—Shelf Awareness

“For any political junkie, this is a read-all-night revelation of the hard-fought 2012 presidential campaign. Hastings moves at warp speed with the press contingent through grueling travel schedules and second-rate accommodations, all the while aware of gamesmanship among so-called colleagues, the White House press corps, “some of the most vicious and competitive journalists on the planet.” Highlights include a chronology of the Benghazi attack, the moment when Vice President Biden jumped ahead of the president with comments on gays, and Obama’s participation in an online Q&A which influenced an estimated 30,000 people to register to vote.”—Publisher’s Weekly, starred review
