"Meticulously documented¿this rant against Bush's 'aura of righteousness' may well leave readers as angry as its author."
"[Bovard] has synthesized and organized a vast amount of information, yet he presents it in an acessible, reader-friendly way.... A timely, troubling book, exhaustively and impeccably researched and documented.... an important, indeed essential, guide to the complex issues with which we must now grapple."
"[A] scathing account of the war on terrorism...Bovard is a bipartisan scourge...His lively fury at government incompetence keeps the pages turning quickly...most riveting."
"Bovard offers far more than an infuriating record of government misconduct. His is a libertarian critique of any government's -- including ours -- inherent tendency to aggarandize and abuse its power."
