"An impassioned exposé of Donald Trump. ... In fiery prose, Reid delivers a well-researched narrative. ... A searing indictment."--Kirkus Reviews
"The political analyst and host of AM Joy on MSNBC argues that President Trump's administration is characterized by grift and venality that demeans the office and diminishes America."--New York Times Book Review, "New & Notable"
"A shrewd analyst of current political trends, Reid offers fierce scrutiny of Trump's controversial performance and fresh insights into his potential legacy."--Booklist
"Passionate, well-intentioned and certain to draw approving nods. ... Imagines a path beyond our current divisions."--Carlos Lozada, Washington Post
“Joy Reid masterfully combines the immediacy of news reporting, the intimacy of memoir, and the sweep of a history book--from the anti-immigrant Know Nothing Party of the 1850s to Nelson Mandela's post-apartheid attempt at 'reconciliation.' The Man Who Sold America delivers a compelling account of how we got to Trumpism and what will happen next.”--Lawrence O'Donnell, host of MSNBC's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
“Valuable. ... Reid does a fine job. ... Find[s] real wisdom.”--The Guardian
