Reviews

[A] page turner.... [Lewis'] most ambitious and important book.
Illuminating.... It's relevance to readers won't end with the Trump era.
[A] spellbinding, alarming analysis of the most serious threats to Americans' safety happening now from inside the U.S. government.
Displaying his usual meticulous research and fluid prose, [Lewis] makes the federal bureaucracy come alive by focusing on a few individuals within each agency with fascinating--and sometimes heartwarming--backstories....[A] well-written primer on how the government serves citizens in underappreciated ways.
Fascinating--and at times harrowing.... Lewis tells an important and timely story, one that all of us who pay for, care about, and want government to work should hear.
A hymn to the 'deep state, ' which is revealed as nothing more than people who know what they're talking about.--Cory Doctorow
