Now Curtis has written a book about the campaign titled, "Age of Obama: A Reporter's Journey with Clinton, McCain and Obama in the Making of the President 2008." Having covered every presidential campaign since Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980, Curtis brings his insights and humor into this book plus his first-hand experiences covering Obama, Clinton and McCain.

Wonder if he'll be invited on "Mornings on 2" to discuss his new book?

Hi this is Mark Curtis. I was indeed invited to talk about the book on "Mornings on 2." Ross interviewed me on Wednesday January 21, the day after the Inaugural, when I was still in Washington, DC. I hope that folks will come to my San Francisco book signing which will be Monday night, February 16, Presidents' Day. I will be discussing the book and signing copies at "Book Passage" in the Ferry Building on the waterfront, at 6pm. Come on by and say hello!
