Since 1984, Newsweek has been renowned for its vivid, in-depth special election coverage of the ordeal of running for the presidency. A year before the election, Newsweek assigns reporters to cover the presidential campaigns on an embargoed basis; anything they learn is kept confidential until the polls close on Election Day. In return, the reporters receive remarkable access to the candidates, their handlers, and their families. They travel with the candidates, witness crucial turning points and confidential meetings, and unearth stories not covered in day-to-day reporting. The result is a story that reads like no other coming off the campaign trail.

In A Long Time Coming, written by Evan Thomas, Newsweek shares the inside stories from the epic 2008 election. This riveting narrative charts the rise of Barack Obama, the comeback of John McCain, the long siege between Obama and Hillary Clinton, the explosive arrival of Sarah Palin, and Obama's final road to victory. It offers intimate portraits of Clinton, McCain, and Obama as they fight and survive, suffer through times of vexation and self-doubt, and quarrel with their families and advisers. It reveals the Clinton campaign's messy infighting. It details McCain's grudging decision to abandon his free-wheeling style in favor of a highly disciplined, press-averse campaigning strategy. And it shows how Obama transformed himself from the consummate outsider to the confident leader of the biggest, best-financed get-out-the-vote campaign in the history of American politics.

With a new chapter on the shaping of the Obama administration, its key players, and its prospects, A Long Time Coming tells the rich and complex story behind the transformative election of 2008.
