"The best political book of the year." --Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times "Frank is a formidable controversialist-imagine Michael Moore with a trained brain and an intellectual conscience." --George F. Will, The Washington Post "Brilliant." --Barbara Ehrenreich, The New York Times "Mr. Frank re-injects economic-class issues into the debate with sardonic vehemence." --Jerome Weeks, The Dallas Morning News "A searing piece of work . . . one of the most important political writings in years." --The Boston Globe "Dazzlingly insightful and wonderfully sardonic . . . Frank has made much sense of the world in this book." --Chicago Tribune "Impassioned, compelling . . . Frank's books mark him as one of the most insightful thinkers of the twenty-first century, four years into it." --Houston Chronicle "Very funny and very painful . . . Add another literary gold star after Thomas Frank's name." --San Francisco Chronicle
