"Vital and indispensable . . . [Draper's] rigorous reporting adds an unusual level of depth . . . The book's first section, 'One Day in Washington, ' will be consumed by most readers in a single breathless gulp. For an event as widely reported as the insurrection at the Capitol has been, Draper provides a startling level of new, first-person detail. We have watched the hearings. We have read the newspaper accounts of that dreadful day. But Draper's extensive interviews with 150 sources pierce the staid facts with vivid humanity . . . Fighting falsehood is all that matters if democracy is to survive, and Draper comes with the fiercest weapon yet: the truth." --The Washington Post

"Engrossing." --Michelle Goldberg, The New York Times

"Draper provides pungent new anecdotes about and original analysis of the most outrageous actors [in the Trump era]." --The Guardian

"A masterpiece of meticulous reporting." --George Will, Washington Post columnist

"Vastly adds to our understanding of the Trump era." --Politico

"A must read." --POLITICO Playbook

"Excellent . . . In focusing on Trump's enablers in Congress and elsewhere, Draper helps to show why the fringe became the center in the GOP--and why it isn't going away anytime soon." --Jacob Heilbrunn, Washington Monthly

"A seamless, terrifying, inside-the-room account--and an unsparing one, at that--about how the Republicans went from the party of Liz Cheney to the party of Marjorie Taylor Greene." --Julia Ioffe, Puck

"Fascinating." --Anderson Cooper

"Brilliant." --Johh Heilemann, Showtime's The Circus

"Deeply reported." --Salon.com
