"Occasionally the right man is at just the right place at exactly the right time.... Frank Rich is that man.... A shrewdly observed and reasoned explanation of the motives behind all this horrifically destructive deceit." -Tim Rutten, Los Angeles Times "Frank Rich has the perfect credentials for writing an account of the Bush administration, which has done so much to blur the lines between politics and show business." -Ian Buruma, The New York Times Book Review "A gripping, witty and devastating indictment of President Bush's reliance on public relations to market his Iraq and counterterrorism policies." -The Washington Post "Fierce and uncompromising." -Time Out "An incisive assault on the administration's message control and word games." -Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Destined to enjoy a healthy shelf life." -The New York Times
