 About the Book 

The bestselling author and television commentator strikes again with another hilarious--and chillingly possible--novel about the intersection of politics, media, and society.With The Peoples Choice, CNN political and media analyst Jeff GreenfieldMoreThe bestselling author and television commentator strikes again with another hilarious--and chillingly possible--novel about the intersection of politics, media, and society.With The Peoples Choice, CNN political and media analyst Jeff Greenfield wrote one of the funniest, scariest, most plausible what-if novels in decades. My God, this could really happen, said Tim Russert of NBC. Rich, real, and hilarious with a rare authenticity, agreed The New York Times Book Review. Mr. Greenfield, like only a handful of his colleagues, has been there.And now he takes us there again.Consider Harold Morse, as powerful men in the world go, certainly one of the most powerful. He owns movie studios, television and radio stations, networks, newspapers, magazines, and not a few congressmen. But what if thats not enough? What if he wants to control all of it, and has figured out a scheme at the Mother of all Conventions in Las Vegas to get us--the government, the financial institutions, the media, and the man on the street--simply to hand it over to him? Impossible, you say? You want to lay a little bet on that?Of course, there are still a few men and women on the street he hasnt quite sewed up yet . . . but how much of a problem could that be?Filled with wit, wonderful characters, and razor-sharp authenticity, Greenfields new novel, like The Peoples Choice, is both grand entertainment and a cautionary tale for our times. And as with that first book, its pretty funny--as long as it stays in the realm of fiction. Otherwise, let us pray (Booklist).
