Reviews

"An authoritative account of the background to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. . . The true believers got everything wrong. . . Today, almost everyone has changed their minds, and the trillions of dollars wasted would be useful right now. A painful yet gripping, essential account of a disastrous series of decisions." --Kirkus (starred review)

"A piercing, unprecedented account by one of the great journalists of our time about the George W. Bush administration's chaotic decisions and indecisions, the people who tried to keep us out and the charlatans who snookered others that led to the most consequential foreign policy fiasco in modern history." --Elizabeth Drew, author of fourteen books, including Politics and Money: The New Road to Corruption and Washington Journal: Reporting Watergate and Richard Nixon's Downfall

"The full measure of America's misadventure in Iraq has finally been weighed in this wise, unsparing, and invaluable narrative. Deeply researched and crisply written, To Start a War stands among the best works of history in modern times." --Lawrence Wright, author, The End of October
