"An eventful year, 1995, and one instructive to look back upon."--Brian Bethune"Maclean's" (01/27/2015)

"Makes the case that 1995 was a watershed year."--Brian Resnick"National Journal" (03/07/2015)
"A compulsively readable new book."--Nick Gillespie"Reason" (05/01/2015)
"A worthy, informative, and sporting attempt to convince us that the world we live in was crucially shaped by things that happened in 1995. . . . Campbell's book draws our attention to the nineteen-nineties. And he's right when he points out that the decade is pretty much ignored."-- (03/30/2015)
"A remarkable book. . . . Campbell's intense commitment to his material brings it to life. He's a persuasive writer with an excellent sense of detail and a knack for narrative. Even those who clearly remember 1995, and know how major events turned out, will find his book illuminating."-- (06/01/2015)

"Deep, exhaustively sourced... [engages] the reader's humanity as well as intellect." --Journalism History
