Reviews

"By turns intimate and dispassionately historical . . . this book will be a boon to historians. The casual reader might delight more in Branch's glimpses of an unguarded president."
--Gilbert Cruz, Time
"I have seldom read a more compelling account of a leader in power. . . . An unexpected treasure-trove. Here is Clinton out of hours and off his guard. . . . The story behind this book reads like the plot of a Hollywood movie."

--Robert Harris, The Sunday Times (London)
"A remarkable portrait of White House life. . . . An important work about American political life. . . . Branch is an historian by trade, and an excellent one. . . . To the extent that Branch's portrait of the president rescues politics from ignominy, he has done a real public service; that he has done this while vividly portraying an exuberant American original is cause for joy. . . . Revealing and often delightful."

--Joe Klein, The New York Times Book Review
"Taylor Branch's latest book has made me whistle more than any comparable piece of work for a very long time, and not just because of its many remarkable disclosures."

--Christopher Hitchens, Newsweek
