Reviews

"By the end of 'Unbelievable' it's clear how wrong they all were in thinking they could run over "little Katy" (Trump's snide name for Tur.) This book couldn't be more timely, appearing as President Trump ratchets up his attacks on the news media....The more personal story Tur tells in "Unbelievable" is also compelling....One more subject that Tur richly examines is the outrageous sexism of Trump and many of his supporters."--Jill Abramson, New York Times Book Review
"A quick and enjoyable read. . . . The chapters switch between key points in the campaign and Election Day, enhancing the feel of chaos that must have been a big part of covering the Trump campaign."--Associated Press
"A real page-tuner"--Morning Joe
"Tur's brisk behind-the-scenes account humanizes the press corps, illuminates life on the campaign trail, and delivers on its promise: "I won't pretend to explain it," Tur writes, but "I will tell you what I saw."--Publishers Weekly
"Outstanding"--Jon Favreau, Pod Save America
"A must-ride roller coaster of a memoir. . . Unbelievable is best read as a reminder that it really did happen that way, we aren't all crazy, it was that crazy."--Hugh Hewitt, Washington Post
"One of the most insightful books I've ever read."--Trevor Noah, The Daily Show
"A fascinating play-by-play of what it was like to cover a campaign that was far from ordinary."--New York Post
"What elevates Unbelievable beyond one more pedestrian campaign memoir is Tur's skill at capturing the constant indignities of campaign reporting while female, including the worst indignity of all: enduring the fixation of Trump himself."--Carlos Lozada, Washington Post
"a quite revealing and powerful book"--The Atlantic
"A great behind-the-scenes look about what it takes to have been a campaign correspondent. All presidents, all presidential candidates have had hostile relationships with the press from time to time. This current president has a totally different reaction to the press and a totally different take on press freedom than any president that has ever gone before him. And the person who most personifies his hostility, condescension and aggression toward the press is NBC correspondent Katy Tur."--Rachel Maddow, The Rachel Maddow Show
"A cross between The Boys on the Bus and Miss Lonelyhearts" --New York Review of Books
"Even after everything we have learned, some of Tur's behind-the-scenes details remain startling...The razor-sharp observations of [Unbelievable]...are the sort of thing you hear nowadays on The Daily Show or Stephen Colbert's Late Show and never, ever, on any of the networks' evening news broadcasts."--The Guardian
