"I would advise anyone who wants to know more about Bachmann to read a new book on her by William Prendergast and Chris Truscott called Michele Bachmann’s America. Prendergast, who lives in Bachmann’s hometown of Stillwater, Minnesota and has been following her for years, is like the living oracle of Bachmann."--Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone


Michele Bachmann's America

Fiery rhetoric.

A powerful movement.

The road to the White House.

Michele Bachmann’s career as never seen before.

In the first book covering the career of Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, Minnesota-based writers William Prendergast and Christopher Truscott provide an in-depth look at a woman who has changed American politics over the last decade.
