    "The Making of the President 1964 is one of the best U.S. Presidential Elections books ever written. Completely non-fiction, this book, part of a larger series, examines the presidency and general politics more in depth. This book is for anyone trying to get a better understanding of the system that has taken quite a sudden turn as of late."

    "In complete contradiction to Goodwin's tome, and with protracted hyperbole, Thompson tries to pass off his subjective overview of McGovern vs. Nixon as gospel. Our nation is gripped in an impending Constitutional crisis while pundits love to live in the past rather than edifying us, in the present, to learn from it and correct our failures. Abysmal "

    "This is the last of the author's series of books on presidential politics. This focuses on the time period 1956-1980 and particularly on how the rise of television forever transformed American and its political structure. This fascinating account was originally published in 1982 and although some of it may sound outdated it is a fascinating tale of history, with important implications even today"

    "If you have a "history buff" bone in your body, you're gonna want to read this book about the Stolen Presidential Election of 1876. It's a stark reminder that American Politics has been ugly for a long long time."
