Hillary v. Obama - The Battle for America 2008

I'm thinking of buying this one. Anyone else reading it?

From a review at the LA Times --The Battle for America 2008:

Even if George W. Bush had not poisoned the well for almost any Republican presidential candidate, the matchup between Clinton and Barack Obama would have been the stuff of high drama, and that's on full display here. Clinton, often judged a polarizing figure, is rendered quite sympathetically, and many readers will come away convinced she got a bad rap, that her public persona is out of register with a personal warmth and sincerity described too often to be dismissed as artifice. That teary response in a diner the day before the New Hampshire primary was a genuine, not confected, moment.
