See How They Run: Campaign Dreams, Election Schemes, and the Race to the White House

See How They Run: Campaign Dreams, Election Schemes, and the Race to the White House by Susan E. Goodman, illustrated by Elwood H. Smith
Using witty anecdotes and clear explanations, the author takes readers from the birth of democracy to the electoral college; from front porch campaigning to hanging chads.

...Informative, entertaining, and timely, this is a fine example of how well-conceived humor can make a potentially complicated topic not only more appealing, but also more comprehensible and even inspiring...

I reviewed this over at Literate Lives -- can't wait to use it with my class in the fall!
