"An engaging account . . . Well-researched." --Wall Street Journal
"Now, this is what's called a road trip." --In Transit, New York Times travel blog
"Harry Truman's Excellent Adventure resonates Aaron Copeland's 'Fanfare for the Common Man'--brassy, bright, energetic, brief and declaratively American." --Washington Times
"Enlivened by Algeo"s endeavors to see the places where Truman stopped, this is an engaging historical sidebar." --Booklist Online
"Algeo chronicles this unlikely excursion in great and wonderful detail. . . . [An] enchanting glimpse into a much simpler age." --Library Journal
"An absolutely wonderful book." --Virginian-Pilot
"Matthew Algeo recalls [my grandparents'] memorable trip beautifully and with the sense of humor it deserves." --Clifton Truman Daniel, grandson of Harry S. Truman
