Publishers Weekly called it an “illuminating insider’s view of American politics….Laurison’s case for how current campaign practices undermine democracy is detailed and persuasive. Readers will learn much from this peek behind the political curtain.”

Arisha Hatch of Color of Change says of the book: “Laurison beautifully grapples with core questions about the state of US politics and democracy: Do campaigns matter? Who gets to run them? And what are the consequences of a growing professional political class that neither reflects the electorate nor attempts to build deeper relationships with regular folks? The candor of the interviews coupled with Laurison’s insights result in a book that is hard to put down.”

And Hahrie Han, author of Prisms of the People: Power & Organizing in Twenty-First-Century America said: “Producing Politics is a fresh, urgent take on one of the most pressing—but overlooked—challenges to democracy in America.”
