Product Details


“[B]lunt, insidery talk is the lifeblood of Lucky, . . . a brisk and detailed account of the 2020 presidential race [with] memorable and telling insider moments.”The Washington Post

“Fascinating book.”—Rev. Al Sharpton, president, National Action Network Inc., host of Politics Nation on MSNBC

“We are blessed once again in the modern era with great writing duos and our viewers are looking at one of them. This is the book. . . . You think you know the story until you read this.”—Brian Williams, MSBNC

Lucky is nothing if not clear-eyed. . . . [The authors’] take on Biden is a prism and scorecard that gives added understanding to the seemingly never-ending war of 2020. It makes the silent parts of the conversation audible and reminds the reader the past is always with us.”The Guardian

“Lucky is more than a journalistic ‘first draft of history.’ It is likely to endure as the definitive account of the Biden campaign. In addition to their fine craftsmanship and exquisite attention to detail, the authors keep their eye on the big picture of the 2020 elections. Biden was lucky in the primaries as the last person standing in a splintered field of candidates. He was lucky in the November election because of Trump’s botched response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the central challenge of his presidency. Failed presidents don’t get reelected. As demonstrated by my Keys to the White House prediction system that called Biden’s win in early August 2020, it is governing that counts for the party holding the White House.”—Alan Lichtman, author of The Case for Impeachment
