"It's very well written and very entertaining. If you want to get a sense of how this stuff operates, this is a great way to do it." -- Jon Stewart, "The Daily Show"
"Whether they're typical voters, hardened political junkies or would-be candidates who have unflattering college-days photos posted on Facebook, readers' perceptions of campaign rhetoric and advertising will be changed by this book." --Pittsburg Tribune
"...a clean memoir of a filthy business is a welcome perspective shift: It illuminates without slaking our blood thirst... The authors contribute something more valuable by exposing the mechanics behind their profession." --Brett Berk, Businessweek
"There is humor and personality in every paragraph of We're with Nobody. The writing is intelligent, detailed, and intimate... I did not want the book to end. I wanted to know where we were going next." -- New York Journal of Books
"If you could in some way take the best parts of your favorite political memoir and blend it perfectly with the most engaging political thriller you've ever read, then you would likely come up with something akin to We're With Nobody." - Jackson Free Press
“This book floored me. I could not stop reading about the strange, dark world that helps determine who we elect and who sinks back into the muck. It is phenomenal; for me politics will never be the same.” (SEBASTIAN JUNGER, author of War and The Perfect Storm)
“A bright romp … A good book for anyone who has wondered how scandalous past behavior makes its way into campaign headlines.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“This timely book lifts the curtain on political research to find dirt on opponents.” (Publishers Weekly)

It did, for the most part. It gives you an insight into what these guys do, and let's face it: it's a job that not many of us WOULD do. I'd recommend it for people who are willing to delve ever-so-slightly in what these two guys do. It's by no means a textbook, but I don't believe they meant for it to be.
It's a good book to read while traveling, and it's just generally well-done.
Extremely entertaining as well, though: Lots of standoffs with miserable clerks, guys in smoky backrooms, on porches with shotguns, shady attorneys, etc. They even include tips for manuevering through the vast thicket of blocks that are thrown up around public records by people whose job it is to store them and, when asked, make them availble to the public. Of course, many of those charged with doing so have the opposite idea, thinking their job is to protect the public record from the prying eyes of political campaigns, the media, etc. This book, if read widely enough, could be a candle in the murky darkness of our political process, and has the potential to render the system more "ours" than in a very long time.
