Reviews

This book, which maintains a brisk pace and is filled with characters found only deep in the heart of Texas politics, is an indispensable addition to any collection specializing in Texas or state politics and feminist political figures. Both scholarly and accessible, it will appeal to almost any reader interested in the lives of American politicians.--Brett Rohlwing, Milwaukee Public Library"Library Journal" (08/01/2012)
Required reading for political junkies--and for women considering a life in politics.--Mary Carroll"Booklist" (09/01/2012)
Reid is a clever stylist and a terrific storyteller. He has a fine grasp of Texas politics and no ideological ax to grind. As an account of Richards the politician in Lone Star surroundings, Let the People In is about as good as it gets.--David Oshinsky"Texas Monthly" (10/01/2012)
Hers is a darned good story, and Reid, a veteran of Austin literary and political circles, tells it with sympathy, insight and a deep knowledge of contemporary Texas politics.--Bryan Burrough"Washington Post" (10/12/2012)
