    One thought on “Panic 2012: The Sublime and Terrifying Inside Story of Obama's Final Campaign (a Buzzfeed/Blue Rider Press Book)”

    1. The latest from Michael Hastings, Panic 2012: The Sublime and Terrifying Inside Story of Obama's Final Campaign is a brisk and enthralling book that does what it says on the tin. Hastings' writing style oscillates between that of straightforward, traditional journalism and Thompson-esque stream-of-consciousness gonzo journalism, resulting in a read that never bores, but also never leaves reason to doubt its veracity.Hastings' book tells, primarily, the story of the “panic” experienced by the [...]

    2. Compelling at points, but did it accomplish what it set out to do? Lots of little fun moments, though. Trying too hard to be the badass view backstage while also admitting he was no such thing.

    3. There are great little nuggets in the book about the Obama 2012 campaign but it didn't have quite the insider take I was hoping for. And the parts of the book where the author detailed his own experiences day to day were simply not interesting to me. That being said, I still found many parts of the book extremely enjoyable. Michael Hastings is a great writer. I simply wanted more red meat from the guts of the Obama campaign.

    4. Quick read of the daily grind of a White House pool reporter as experienced by Buzzfeed and Rolling Stone editor Michael Hastings. The encounter with Rahm Emanaual at the end of the book is priceless. I experienced the PANIC Hastings talks about after The President's first debate performance. I would have liked a little more time spent on Uncle Joe's ass-whupping of Rep Ryan and what it did to right the ship.

    5. I downloaded it after I saw him plugging it on Morning Joe. I really enjoyed his other work, The Operators, but I found this one just slightly below its quality.Perhaps it's due to the closeness of the last election, but I didn't find any new information about the campaign. I did think that his description of being outside the clique of the press corps interesting, though.Not Hastings' best, but a quick and entertaining read.

    6. In my review on , I said it felt like I was reading a (first) draft. I was always ambivalent about Michael Hastings (thought he did good work on McCrystal profile, for instance, but was far too enamoured of himself), and that didn't change with reading this book. And while I know I am going against the current on this one, the gratuitous profanity was irksome.

    7. Not bad as a gonzo journalists view of life in the press corps on the campaign trail, but that's ground we'll covered by Hunter S Thompson and David Foster Wallace, among many others. Entertaining, but a lack of new information or insight keeps it from being a must read.

    8. Standard campaign pornography. I like Hasting's style, but only a few interesting nuggets here. I actually fell asleep reading it at the beachybe that had more to do with the sun, sand, and beer though.

    9. It's the voice, that will grab you, and keep you. There's really no one writing today with a voice as vivid and hilarious as Michael. He takes you were the media rarely if ever does. A wonderful read: insightful and FUN!

    10. 2.5 stars. Just average to below-average campaign porn. A few interesting nuggets (especially on Obama's Internet strategy), but mostly a lot of tick-tock you could've gotten from the real-time coverage.

    11. This is a great inside story of PARTS of the Obama campaign that produces an exciting, intriguing and actually very entertaining account. It's very short and well worth more time than it requires.

    12. I'm not going to lie, it took me up until the 2nd to last page to realize that this and The Operators (which I read earlier this year) were the same guy. Not sure what that says about me.

    13. Light look at the 2012 campaign from the back row of the press corp. must read for political junkies but contained few surprises.

    14. Kudos for getting it out quick, and lively writing. But quick publication makes it hard to nail down the secret stuff.
