On Saturday, I saw the final copy of Garrett M. Graff’s The First Campaign, which was number 6 of 52 in this Book a Week series. If you remember from my first review, the last pages were not printed in the preview copy because Graff was trying to be as up-to-date as he could be, so left the ending for the real end.
I’m happy to say that the ending was as good as the rest of the book. It’s also reviewed in the December issue of Wired. I texted with Garrett this weekend to tell him I saw the review (which is positive) and that I got the final book. I agree with what he said (or texted) — the cover looks better in final form. Still not my favorite, but not as cheesy as it looked on the galley cover.
