Diversion Books Releases a Quick-to-Market eBook on the 2012 Presidential Election in Partnership with The Washington Post
Diversion Books has just published a quick-to-market ebook on the 2012 Presidential election by Washington Post senior political correspondent, Dan Balz. Entitled Obama vs. Romney: “The Take” on Election 2012, the book takes an inside look at the campaigns of both political parties and candidates, from the first days of campaigning to the last hours of the election. This release marks the fifth title in the publishing partnership series with Diversion Books and The Washington Post:
The presidential campaign of 2012 was one of the closest, fiercest, and most expensive and unpredictable in our history, and Washington Post senior political correspondent Dan Balz chronicled every twist.
Obama vs. Romney is a collection of 50 writings from the campaign trail, by one the preeminent political journalists of our times. Balz recounts the back-and-forth slugfest of 2012 in a single seamless narrative, including his hundreds of interviews with behind-the-scenes players who crafted both Obama’s scorched-earth re-election game plan and Romney’s audacious strategy for unseating a president. The result is a complete inside story of the campaign from the early days in both parties, through the dramatic ending that wasn’t written until the very last hours of the election.
Obama vs. Romney is currently available on Amazon and BN.com, and will be available on the iBookstore and Kobo in the next 24 hours.
Other Diversion Books titles in their publishing partnership with The Washington Post include:
The Bryce Harper Story: Rise of a Young Slugger
Obama: The Evolution of a President
The Hunt for Bin Laden
The Original Watergate Stories
