Reviews

"...a profound masterwork by a talented young writer...one helluva page-turner"--The New York Times

"In this age when people compete to be contrarian, it's rare to encounter a genuinely startling proposition. That's what makes the premise of Ryan Holiday's 'Conspiracy' such a delight...'" --The Washington Post

"Brilliant and terrifying." --Rich Cohen, author of The Fish That Ate the Whale and contributing editor of Vanity Fair

"A fantastic read."--The Sunday Times

"Startlingly deep cultural history of conspiracies, examined through the lens of the brutally effective Gawker takedown, with full access to the main players." --Marc Andreessen, co-founder of Andreessen Horowitz

"An artful examination of how true power really works and how it affects all of us."--Michael Lombardi, host of GM Street on The Ringer and former Cleveland Browns general manager

"Every one of Ryan Holiday's books is appointment reading for me. If he writes it, I make the time to read it."--Brian Koppelman, producer and creator of Billions

"CONSPIRACY will captivate you, terrify you, intrigue you, and piss you off. It's a sizzling, can't-put-down, read-it-in-one-sitting story. Ryan Holiday has crafted a hell of a book!" -Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of SPYMASTER

"Ryan Holiday is one of his generation's finest thinkers."--Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of Gates of Fire

"This book is the Art of War for any twenty-first century conspirator....A brilliant meditation on strategy, with numerous lessons."--Robert Greene, author of The 48 Laws of Power and Mastery

"Riveting...an astonishing modern media conspiracy...that is a fantastic read. Holiday is a fine writer. He brilliantly elucidates... [with] a reporter's eye for detail." --The Sunday Times of London

"More than mere business history, Holiday elevates the story into something far more lasting, casting Thiel's actions into the timeless mold of the conspirator: the man who, armed with patience and an indignant urge to reshape the world, co-opts allies, musters resources, lulls adversaries, and ultimately strikes when the time is right, changing everything. 'Conspiracy' will be the last word, the veil-lifting exposΓ©, on that Gawker/Thiel war all of us read about, but none of use really understood, until now." - Antonio Garcia Martinez, author of Chaos Monkeys
