A terrific book on the 1948 Presidential election waged between Harry Truman and Thomas Dewey. While I already knew most of the pertinent details of the '48 campaign from previous books and documentaries it's still eye opening and I've learned a few things I wasn't previously aware of.
I love that story. What's the name of the book?

And, I'm reading Richter 10 by the late Arthur C. Clarke and the late Mike McQuay (his last book).
The Last Campaign: How Harry Truman Won the 1948 Election by Zachary Karabell. It was published a little over ten years ago but I hadn't actually read it yet. I'm a big, shameless geek and wonk when it comes to electoral politics.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
