"For decades, Charles' words have strengthened our democracy. His
work was far-reaching and influential - and...his ideas and values
will always be a part of our country." --George W.
"Charles will be remembered as one of the greatest public intellects of his generation. A true renaissance man, there was no topic too complex for Charles to probe; no party or politician too powerful to challenge...I'm confident his words will continue to inspire all of us to live bravely and think boldly." --John McCain
"Charles wrote for the right reasons. ... To provoke us to
think, to enlarge our understanding, at times to make us laugh.
Like few others, he succeeded, week after week, Friday after
Friday, year after year... he wrote a column of breathtaking range
and intelligence and integrity." --The Washington
"A giant, a man who not only defended our civilization but represented what's best in it." --National Review "A voice of reason and a powerful intellect in Democracy's cause." --Condoleezza Rice "There are people you meet throughout your life that you just know will leave an impact forever. Charles Krauthammer was one of those people. His words and his knowledge and his eloquence on the issues of the day were unsurpassed. He could cut through the noise. He could get to the point better than anybody." --Bret Baier "The Point of It All is very wide-ranging, a true Krauthammer sampler. This is Krauthammer in full, or very nearly so. It is a book that says, 'This is what he believed. This is who he was.' As such, it is invaluable." --Jay Nordlinger
