Reviews

Phenomenal book. We all should read it and start asking questions. -- Major General John Batiste
A must-read bestseller. -- Frank Rich, The New York Times
This is an important book, filled with the surest sign of great reporting: the unexpected. It enriches our understanding of even familiar episodes from the Bush administration's war on terror and tells us some jaw-dropping stories we haven't heard before. -- Barton Gellman, The Washington Post
A doomsday tale masked as a John le CarrΓ© thriller.... Suskind lays out evidence of success, failure, humility and hubris. -- Bill Glauber, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Riveting.... Sheds new light on the Bush White House's strategic thinking and its doctrine of pre-emptive action, but also underscores the roles that personality and ideology played in shaping the administration's decision to go to war in Iraq. -- Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
A richly detailed and layered account.... It makes for deeply unsettling reading and is a major contribution to our national conversation.... [Suskind] is a gifted and enterprising reporter and those attributes inform nearly every part of this important book.... Compelling. -- Tim Rutten, Los Angeles Times
If Bob Woodward is the chronicler of the Bush administration, Ron Suskind is its analyst.... A page-turning, blow-by-blow, inside-the-administration account.... Historians will be grateful for it as they write the many final drafts in the decades to come. -- Michael Hill, The Baltimore Sun
Suskind's great achievement here is to reveal how the Bush administration short-circuited and ultimately corrupted the way America's government is supposed to work. -- Gary Kamiya, Salon.com
