"[A] comprehensive and judicious account. . . . Scrupulous and frequently enthralling, this is a sobering account of a tragedy woven into the fabric of modern America."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"Riveting. . . . As the author did in previous reports on Charles Manson and Jonestown, Guinn dives deeply into his subject to present a vivid combination of well-researched facts, personal testimonials, and controversial perspectives. A convincing and chilling coda to this investigation is the correlations Guinn draws among the Davidian compound raid, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, and the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Guinn focuses on the standoff and the myriad bad decisions by the ATF and the FBI, capably tracing a throughline to the increase in anti-government hate groups. . . . Extremely well done and thought-provoking."-- "Booklist"
"Impressively researched and written with storytelling verve."--Barton Swaim "Wall Street Journal"
"Guinn, whose reporting draws heavily on interviews with ATF agents present at Waco, is sympathetic to the agency's rank-and-file. . . . But overall, [Waco] sketch[es] a portrait of an operation mishandled at almost every level of government."--Quinta Jurecic "Washington Post"
"Gripping. . . . [Guinn] tells stories we thought we knew and makes us realize we really didn't. He takes devils of the popular imagination and carefully explains that they're actually human -- a fact that makes them even more terrifying."--Chris Vognar "Houston Chronicle"
