“The Candidate:” a recipe for becoming the President

Author/political consultant Samuel Popkin has written “The Candidate,” a fascinating book on what it takes to run for U.S. President. Are Barack Obama and Mitt Romney reading it? I wouldn’t rule it out: Popkins’ book was reviewed yesterday in the New York Times .

You can get the inside scoop by watching tonight’s interview with Popkin on “Well Read,” state public access channel TVW’s books and authors program. Host Terry Tazioli picks Popkins’ brain for what he’s learned in four decades of advising presidential candidates. It airs at 7 and 10 p.m. Tuesdays. Or you can watch it here:

On the “Well Read” blog, I chime in with my favorite books about presidents.
