    DescriptionThomas E. Ricks 's #1 New York Times bestseller, Fiasco, transformed the political dialogue on the war in Iraq. Now Ricks has picked up where Fiasco left off-Iraq, late 2005. With more newsbreaking information, including hundreds of hours of interviews with top U.S. officials who were on the ground during the surge and beyond, The Gamble is the natural companion piece to Fiasco, and the two are sure to become the definitive examinations of what ultimately went wrong in Iraq. "Staggeringly vivid and persuasive . . . absolutely essential reading." -Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "The best account yet of the entire war." -Vanity Fair
