Reviews

"Throughout this collection, Maraniss proves himself to be a relentless reporter and a solid writer. . . these are journalistic journeys well worth taking."

--"Christian Science Monitor"""
"Maraniss's lively sketches illuminate the lives of significant cultural and political figures and intimately capture various moments that define modern American cultural history."

- "Publishers Weekly"
"Once in a while, an anthology clicks. A few even become journalistic classics...we can add another title to this honor roll: David Maraniss's "Inside the Story"... He makes complex individuals come alive on a printed page about as well as any journalist I have encountered." -"Columbia Journalism Review"
"Elegant and elegiac. . . He has a gift for finding the small details of our daily routine that can 'suddenly take on deep visual and metaphorical meaning' -and remind us that life is ordinary until it isn't." -"The Boston Globe"""
"In piece after piece, Maraniss searches for the humanity, not the myths or cliches, in famous figures, from Barack Obama and Bill Clinton to Vince Lombardi and Muhammad Ali." -"Providence Journal "
