Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
Never swallows the liberal clich that the Bush presidency is a sort of TV-age regency, in which Rove serves as guardian to a telegenic but incompetent ward....Vivid examples of Rove's campaign-trail savior-faire.
Los Angeles Times Book Review
Fresh even to political junkies...Offers plenty of...juicy details.
Austin American-Statesman
Quite effectively ... chronicles the bespectacled bookworm's rise to behind-the-scenes power.... A detailed analysis of the strong-arming, grassroots organizing, and mega-fund raising that Rove masterminded to solidify Bush's power in Washington.
